Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh refused the request of Dr. Barjinder Singh Hamdard to relieve him as Member Secretary of the Jang-e-Azadi Memorial Foundation and Chairperson of its Executive Committee.

While pointing out that the Jang-e-Azadi Museum was not just an important project for the State Government but the labour of love of Dr Hamdard, the Chief Minister has urged him to continue in these positions to ensure the successful completion of this prestigious project.

In a letter, the Chief Minister said that he always held Dr. Hamdard in high regard not only because of their long-standing personal association and friendship but because of his strong commitment to Punjab and the welfare of its people.
