It is a pity that even today people know Shaheed Park as a fish park
The wife of the martyr Commissioner Rajwinder Kaur Bajwa said that although there was a statue of her martyred husband in this park but still people know this park by its old name Fish Park. Which hurts their feelings. Therefore, the government and the administration should take some steps so that people forget the old name of this park and call it Shaheed Park.
