On Bhagat Singh

This is with reference to the letter of C P Singh (October 13) regarding seven “errors” in my article entitled ‘Revolutionary Legacy of Bhagat Singh’ (September 15).

I humbly accept the error in relation to the date of demonstration against the Simon Commission in Lahore. The correct date is October 30. However, whether Bhagat Singh was present on the occasion or not, contrary references of those who were present in that demonstration are available, particularly of Ramchander and Yashpal, who were present and who do not testify to the presence of Bhagat Singh. That does not mean that Bhagat Singh was not involved in the planning and execution of that demonstration.
