Patiala: A Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak
Committee panel has finalised a place to build a memorial
dedicated to those killed during the Operation Bluestar in
1984.

In its report submitted to SGPC two weeks ago, the
committee proposed that the memorial would be build between
Shri Akal Takhat Sahib and the Nishan Sahib of Miri-Piri in
front of Darshani Deodi of Golden Temple, sources said here
today.

The committee proposed that a small room would be
constructed and the names of those who have been killed in
action would be engraved on the black marble which has to be
affixed around it.

Notably, the chief of radical Damdami Taksal Harnam Singh
Dhuma, who is also a member of the sub-committee, had raised
the issue of the construction of memorial during the
inauguration of Fateh-Burj at ChapparChiri on Wednesday.

The SGPC executive committee had passed a resolution to
this effect twice-- first on February, 20, 2002 and then three
years later on May 27, 2005.
