New Delhi (NVI): On the occasion of Shaheed Diwas today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tributes to Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru, saying that the country will always remember their sacrifice.
“On Shaheed Diwas, I bow down to the great sons of Mother India, Veer Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru. The country will always be grateful to their sacrifice for the country,” PM Modi said in a message on Twitter in Hindi.
March 23 is observed as Shaheed Diwas every year to pay tribute to Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar- the Indian revolutionaries who were hanged by the British Government in 1931.
The trio was hanged by the British for their alleged involvement in the killing of deputy police superintendent JP John Saunders in 1928, to avenge the death of Lala Lajpat Rai.
