“The widows of the victims will lead the event that will be attended by Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal,” General Secretary, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee, Manjinder Singh Sirsa said.
“The memorial has names of thousands of Sikhs killed in the carnage and people from other communities who laid down their lives trying to save them etched on its walls. We have also given space to the observations of different panels which were set up by the government to probe the riots,” he said.
