Centenary of Jallianwala Bagh massacre Live updates- PM Modi says ‘memory inspires us’

Amritsar’s Jallianwala Bagh was a desolate piece of land partly used for dumping garbage until British General Reginald Dyer oversaw the massacre of several hundred unarmed people gathered there on April 13, 1919, to protest against a draconian law that allowed internments without trial. The massacre etched Jallianwala Bagh in India’s collective memory and fuelled India’s struggle for complete independence from Britain. Hundreds of people were massacred by British forces on April 13, 1919. Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday reached Jallianwala Bagh to pay floral tribute to martyrs of Jallianwala Bagh massacre of 1919. Gandhi was accompanied by Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh.:
