Chandigarh: Gurkirat Singh Kotli, grandson
of assassinated Punjab Chief Minister Beant Singh, on Wednesday said
the Union government`s decision to stay the hanging of Balwant Singh Rajoana was in the interest of peace and harmony in the
state.

"The hard-earned peace cannot be frittered away. Any
step in the interest of peace and harmony in the state will
always be supported by us," he said.

Kotli, a Congress MLA from Khanna, said the family felt
relieved and satisfied over the decision.

The step would go a long way in establishing peace in
the state, he said.

The hanging of the Babbar Khalsa terrorist, assassin of
Beant Singh, was stayed by the Central government following a
mercy petition by the SGPC to President Pratibha Patil.
