Eminent guests including Montek Singh Ahluwalia and Mr. Soli Sorabjee and others were present on the occasion.

Turning nostalgic as he recounted several of his personal interactions with late Khushwant Singh the CM said a general feeling of bitterness prevailed in the state at that time and a team was appointed to bring down tempers, with Khuswant being a prominent member of it.

“One of the important legacies left behind by Khushwant was that he believed in truth, and what he wrote was simply truth. The author and his books will live in the hearts and minds of people till posterity,” he said.

“Khushwant was a man who spoke straight from his heart and that was a quality everyone admired,” he said.
