The World Punjabi Organisation (WPO) and Saragarhi Basis Inc commemorated the a hundred and twenty fifth anniversary of the well-known battle fought at Saragarhi in 1897 between 10,000 Afghani raiders and 21 troopers of the Sikh Regiment.

Uttarakhand Governor Lieutenant Normal Gurmit Singh (retd) mentioned the battle at Galwan with China in June 2020 was fought with the spirit instilled by the Saragarhi battle.

WPO president Vikramjit Singh Sahney, who’s a Rajya Sabha member, mentioned: “A chapter on the Saragarhi battle must be included within the curriculum.”

He introduced Rs 50 lakh for the renovation of the Saragarhi memorial in Ferozepur.

Sahney demanded that one other memorial commemorating the battle be constructed within the Capital. Former Military Chief Normal JJ Singh (retd) reminded the viewers that the battle was fought to “the final man and the final spherical”.
