Shaheed Diwas: Programmes on Bhagat Singh's martyrdom day cancelled amid coronavirus fears

March 23 marks Shaheed Diwas or Martyrs’ Day and the day when Indian socialist revolutionaries Bhagat Singh, Shivaram Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar had attained martyrdom. For the first time in decades, no programme has been organised to mark the martyrdom day of the revolutionaries. The decision to not hold any event on Shaheed Diwas in Punjab comes amid the rising cases of coronavirus across the country. Several UTs and states, including Punjab, have announced a lockdown to restrict locals from gathering at a site for any cause, to contain the spread of COVID-19. The lockdown in states will remain in imposition till March 31.
