"When there was an emergency in the country and brotherhood was at stake, no one was speaking openly, in such a situation, it was only Sh. Inder Kumar Gujral, who spoke openly in respect to brotherhood. He was the idols of harmony, sympathetic behaviour for society and brotherhood. Patriotism was in his blood from his family. When the Shaheed-E-Azam Bhagat Singh ji was being hanged, the Gujral family was at the forefront of the protests outside the jail. Gujral family faces jail in Quit India Movement & during many other freedom moments. These are the facts shared by member Rajya Sabha Sh. Naresh Gujral on Friday during his live address through e-platform at I.K.Gujral Punjab Technical University (IKGPTU).
