“The memorial is almost complete. Finishing touches are being given to the open air theater,” says an official of the DSGMC.

Speaking on the occasion, Manjit Singh and Sirsa said the memorial had been constructed in three and a half years of time, as the DSGMC was not allotted land anywhere in Delhi by the government. Finally, it has been constructed on the premises of Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib with the consent of all Singh Sabhas, religious and other institutions, said the media reports.

The memorial narrates the horrors of November 1984 killings, in which thousands of Sikhs were massacred.
