Fatehgarh Sahib: Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday paid obeisance at Gurudwara Sri Fatehgarh Sahib during the second day of Shaheedi Jor Mel to mark the martyrdom of Chotta sahibzadas and Mata Gujri ji.

He said that people from cross sections of society head towards Fatehgarh Sahib for paying obeisance to supreme sacrifice of Chotta sahibzadas and Mata Gujri ji. Bhagwant Mann said that the supreme sacrifice made by the younger Sahibzadas at such a young age hardly finds any parallel in world history.
The Chief Minister said that martyrdom of Sahibzada Zorawar Singh and Sahibzada Fateh Singh along with Mata Gujri ji at this pious land had since ages inspired Punjabis to fight against injustice, tyranny and oppression. He said that they showed exemplary courage and fearlessness to stand up against the might of the Mughal Governor of Sirhind.
