Cabinet okays amending Jallianwala Bagh Memorial Act


New Delhi, Dec 7 (IANS): The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday approved the Amendment of the Jallianwala Bagh National Memorial Act, 1951.

The amended Act would include as Trustee "the Leader of Opposition recognised as such in the Lok Sabha, or where there is no such Leader of Opposition, then the Leader of the single largest opposition party in the House".

"In the existing Act, there is provision for representation of a single national political party," an official note said.

"Deletion of the party-specific member from the Trust will make it apolitical. The proposed amendment ensures representation of the opposition party in the Trust," it explained.

The proposed Amendment would also empower the government to terminate and replace a Trustee to participate in functioning of the Trust or for any other reason.
