The Chief Minister was welcomed at his old school, which was established by his father Maharaja Yadavindra Singh, by cheering students. He was accompanied by his wife Preneet Kaur and former Union Minister Dr. Karan Singh, also alumni of the school.
Speaking on the occasion, Captain Amarinder’s brother, Malwinder Singh, the Chairman and Member of the school’s Board of Governors, described the institution’s establishment as the taking of wings of his great father’s vision. Recalling that the school was envisioned by his father in the difficult times of the partition, he pointed out that one of its oldest students, Justice SS Sodhi, who passed out in 1949, had attended the celebrations.
