A delegation of Shahid Smarak Samiti, Ghaziabad comprising BK Sharma Hanuman, President, Ram Asre Sharma and Pankaj Tyagi met UP Minister Rita Bahuguna Joshi in Lucknow and asked her to declare Hindon riverfront as a heritage site. Notably, during 1857 freedom movement, cities settled along Hindon banks, especially Ghaziabad had an important role to play. The delegation demanded that a Shahid Smarak be built and Metro station be named after the Shaheeds (martyrs). Joshi reportedly told the delegation that she would study the proposal and would try to fulfill the demands kept before her very soon. According to samiti members Joshi also said that it would be a privilege for her to initiate such a project that would also comprise a park.
