Punjabi University Vice-Chancellor Dr. Jaspal Singh and former Rajya Sabha MP Tarlochan Singh reportedly praised efforts of DSGMC to mark the “Delhi Fateh Divas”.

The DSGMC president Manjit Singh GK said the Fateh Diwas was organised in memory of Baba Baghel Singh who had conquered Delhi during the reign of Mughal King Shah Alam in March 1783 and unfurled a Nishan Sahib at Red Fort.
