[RxPG] New Delhi, May 15 - Lok Sabha MPs Tuesday urged the government to restore the ancestral home of freedom fighter Sukhdev Singh, who was hanged along with Bhagat Singh in 1931, and erect a column in the memory of the freedom fighters at Viper island in the Andaman Islands where they were deported during British colonial rule.

Raising the issue the in Lok Sabha during zero hour, Bhartruhari Mahtab, a Biju Janata Dal MP from Cuttack, pointed out that Punjab was observing the birth centenary of Sukhdev Singh this year. He was born May 15, 1907.

'Sukhdev, along with Bhagat Singh and Rajguru, shook the very foundation of the British empire in India. He was a fearless man of exceptional patriotism and integrity,' Mahtab said, amid thumping of desks by MPs cutting across party lines.

The Cuttack MP said the government had failed to restore the martyr's ancestral house in Naughara Mohalla of Ludhiana city.

He said the government should erect a column in Viper islands in memory of the hundreds of freedom fighters, who had been incarcerated after the British rulers deported them there.

The MPs from the Bharatiya Janata Party -, Left and Congress joined him in demanding that the government take up the matter seriously.

In reply, Parliamentary Affairs Minister P.R. Dashmunsi assured that it would be referred to the National Integration Council for action.

Bhagat Singh and his friends had thrown a bomb inside the Central Legislative Assembly on April 8, 1929, protesting against the passage of the Public Safety Bill and the Trade Disputes Bill by the colonial rulers.
