wherein it was directed that the representation of the petitioner be considered
by the appropriate authority.
Today, Mr. Gupta, learned counsel representing Union of India,
submits that necessary approval has been granted for change of name of the
concerned railway station.
Mr. Ramswaroop, learned State counsel submits that the
Governor of Punjab, has issued a notification dated December 16, 2016,
renaming the existing Sunam railway station in District Sangrur, as “Sunam
Udham Singh Wala Railway Station”. A copy of the notification has been
produced. Same is taken on record. He has also referred to communication
dated 24.6.2016 addressed to Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of
India, stating that Shaheed Udham Singh made supreme sacrifice for the
nation.
It is evident that name of railway station at Sunam is now
“Sunam Udham Singh Wala Railway Station”, which is same as the name of
town. The steps taken is in order as Shaheed Udham Singh belonged to
Sunam and gave supreme sacrifice for the nation. This redresses the
grievance of the petitioner. No further direction is necessary. The petition
is rendered infructuous, disposed of as such.
