At an emotionally charged moment event on Saturday evening as Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh inaugurated the Jallianwala Bagh Centenary Memorial Park on the eve of India’s 75th Independence Day, in the memory of all those known and unknown people martyred in the massacre of 13th April 1919.With families of many of the martyrs looking on, the Chief Minister dedicated the memorial to the memory of the people of Punjab, saying this second memorial at the site of the gory massacre was a tribute to all those unknown martyrs who laid down their lives during the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, while the original memorial had been built to remember those who were known to have been killed at the site in this tragedy.Nobody knows the exact number of lives lost, although the DC office has the names of only 488 who fell to the bullets of the British, led by General Dyer, who fired on the orders of the then Governor of Punjab, Michael O’ Dwyer, said Captain Amarinder, adding that with 1250 bullets fired on that day, the number would actually have run in thousands.The memorial has been built over 1.5 acres at a cost of Rs.3.5 crore at Amrit Anand Park, Ranjit Avenue. Soil from villages around the state was brought to the site for the construction of the memorial to fill up the space below the sacred platform as a befitting tribute to them.The Chief Minister disclosed that a Special Research Team of historians and research scholars has been constituted by GNDU for carrying out research on martyrs of Jallianwala Bagh and freedom fighters who were imprisoned at Cellular Jail, Port Blair.

Once the research is completed, the names of more martyrs might be discovered, he said, adding that sufficient space has been kept on the columns of the memorial to incorporate more names in the future. Currently, the names of the officially known 488 martyrs have been inscribed on the black and grey granite stone walls of the memorial.Recalling that he had laid the Foundation Stone of the Memorial on 25th January, 2021 and had promised to complete it by 15th August 2021, the Chief Minister congratulated the Departments of Cultural Affairs, Architecture and PWD for designing the park and completing the construction in the promised timeline.On the occasion, the Chief Minister paid floral tributes to the unsung heroes  and honoured 29 family members of the martyrs who died in the massacre. He also posed for a group photo with them. He appreciated the mural designed by Bengali artist Moloy Ghosh to portray the historic massacre.The newly inaugurated memorial consists of five white stone pillars rising upwards. The pillars symbolize the spirit of the martyrs rising towards the sky. The different heights of the five pillars correspond to various age groups of martyrs - children, teenagers, youth, middle aged and the elderly. They also signify the five fingers of the hand and the cohesive power of the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the nation. The white colour of the stone is a symbol of the purity of their sacrifice. The central black stone on a circular platform from where these pillars arise symbolize   the empty space and the void created by the sacrifice of these martyrs.
