  • This day in 1907, Bhagat Singh was born in Banga village of Lyallpur district of undivided Punjab province.
  • “He’ll always remain a source of inspiration for us,” Amit Shah said on Twitter.
  • On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also paid his tributes to the revolutionary in his 69th ‘Mann ki Baat’ episode.

Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday paid tribute to Shaheed Bhagat Singh on his 113th birth anniversary. He expressed his gratitude to the revolutionary freedom fighter for giving a new direction to the Indian freedom struggle and making huge sacrifices to awaken the resolve of independence among the youth of the country. “He’ll always remain a source of inspiration for us,” Amit Shah said on Twitter.

It was on this day in 1907, Bhagat Singh was born in Banga village of Lyallpur district of undivided Punjab province. He was a charismatic Indian socialist revolutionary whose two acts of dramatic violence against the British in India and execution at the age of 23 made him a folk hero of the Indian Independence movement. Bhagat Singh was hanged in the Lahore jail along with Shivaram Hari Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar on March 23, 1931.

Meanwhile, as the nation pays tributes to Bhagat Singh, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh will stage a sit-in protest against the Farm Acts on Monday at Khatkar Kalan, the ancestral village of Bhagat Singh. Former Uttarakhand chief minister and Congress general secretary Harish Rawat will also be visiting Punjab for the first time since taking charge of state affairs.
