A stray bull reportedly attacked Navjot Sigh Sidhu at the entrance to the Durgiana Mandir in amritsar, but his alert security staff saved him. After holding a meeting with the temple management, when Sidhu came out to put on his shoes, the bull charged at him. Though Sidhu was pulled aside by his security staff, the furious animal hit some mediapersons and bystanders, leaving them with minor injuries. Sidhu, accompanied by Secretary, Local Bodies, Venu Parsad, Mayor Karamjit Rintu, Deputy Commissioner KS Sangha, MC Commissioner Sonali Giri and Improvement Trust SE Rajiv Sekhri, inspected the ongoing beautification work of the shrine. On the lines of Heritage Street leading to the Golden Temple, Local Bodies Minister announced an identical walkway for Durgiana Temple.
Costing around Rs 5 crore, this heritage street will start from Hathi Gate and have uniform structures around. The passage will run parallel to the existing road, but will be dedicated for the pedestrian devotees to help them reach Durgiana Temple.
As per the plan, one side of the road will be taken up to lay pebble path exclusively for pedestrians where no traffic would be allowed. This will decongest the area approaching the temple.
