Punjab.. A revolutionary socialist who was influential in the Indian independence movement

The newly elected chief minister of Punjab, Bhagwant Mann announced a holiday in the state on March 23rd, the death anniversary of Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh.

Mann, while speaking at the Vidhan Sabha said that the declaration of state holiday will give people an opportunity to visit the birthplace of Shaheed Bhagat Singh, and pay homage to the freedom fighter.

Bhagat Singh was born in Banga village of Faisalabad district (previously called Lyallpur), now in Pakistan's Punjab province, in 1907.

The revolutionary freedom fighter was a charismatic Indian socialist revolutionary whose two acts of dramatic violence against the British in India and execution at the age of 23 made him a folk hero of the Indian Independence movement.

Singh, who was hanged in the Lahore jail along with Shivaram Hari Rajguru and Sukhdev Thapar on March 23rd 1931, left a strong impact during his lifetime.
