Delhi Legislative Assembly
On Thursday, a secret tunnel between the Delhi Legislative Assembly and the Red Fort was discovered. According to stories, Britishers utilised the tunnel to evade retaliation while transporting independence fighters."When I became an MLA in 1993, there was hearsay about a tunnel present here that goes till Red Fort and I tried to search for its history.
But there was no clarity over it," Delhi Legislative Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel was quoted by news agency ANI as saying."Now we have got the mouth of the tunnel but we are not digging it further as all the paths of the tunnel have been destroyed due to metro projects and sewer installations," Ram Niwas Goel said."We will refurbish it soon and make it available for the public. I'm hoping that the renovation work will be completed by August 15 next year," Ram Niwas Goel said.Ram Niwas Goel went on to say that after the capital was moved from Kolkata to Delhi in 1912,
The Delhi Legislative Assembly was used as the Central Legislative Assembly. In 1926, the assembly was converted into a court, and Britishers used this tunnel to transport freedom fighters to the court, according to him."We all knew about the presence of a gallows room here but never opened it. Now it was the 75th year of independence and I decided to inspect that room. We intend to change that room into a shrine of freedom fighters as a tribute to them," Ram Niwas Goel was quoted as saying."This place has a very rich history in the context of the freedom struggle. We intend to renovate it in a way that tourists and visitors can get a reflection of our history," Ram Niwas Goel said.
