On December 23, 2004 Tribune India reported, "A sea of humanity attired in saffron turned up to participate in a nagar kirtan organised to observe the 300th year of the martyrdom of the younger sons (Sahibzadas) of Guru Gobind Singh here today. Led by Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) general secretary and the MLA of the Banur Assembly constituency Kanwaljit Singh, thousands of women along with children also joined the procession. A 2-km-long stretch of the Chandigarh-Patiala highway here was packed to capacity, leaving hardly any space for commuters to move around."
