Assam Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi has raised objection on the installation of “disco lights” at the Jallianwala Bagh Smarak. 

He said that installation and usage of such lights at “institutions of importance and dignity” reduces its ‘gravity’ to mere ‘entertainment’. 

Assam Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi said: “Call me a traditional Indian but I am not a fan of installing disco lights on institutions of importance and dignity.” 

“Such pomp reduces the gravity and horror of the Jallianwala Bagh Smarak to base entertainment. Similarly, the strobe lights on Parliament are also appalling,” Gaurav Gogoi added.

Gaurav Gogoi said this while retweeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tweet on August 28, where the PM had posted an update about inauguration of the renovated complex of Jallianwala Bagh Smarak. 

On August 28, PM Modi had inaugurated the renovated complex of Jallianwala Bagh Smarak in Amritsar, Punjab. 

“Jallianwala Bagh is the place which gave courage to countless revolutionaries, sacrifices, fighters like Sardar Udham Singh, Sardar Bhagat Singh to die for the freedom of India,” PM Modi had said during the inauguration.
