The Punjab state committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Monday said the people of Punjab were shocked to know that the memorial gurdwara constructed in the Harmandar Sahib complex in Amritsar bore a stone plaque with an engraving which read: "Memorial in the memory of 14th head of Damdami Taksal martyr Sant Giani Jarnail Singh ji Khalsa Bhindranwale and all martyrs of 1984."

Committee secretary Charan Singh Virdi said, "To our mind all such peace-loving and patriotic people also feel that this unfortunate happening is not only breach of promises and trust on the part of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) leadership but also likely to disturb communal harmony and peace in the state."

He said chief minister Parkash Singh Badal, SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal and SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar owed an explanation to the people in this regard.
