The district administration here on Saturday refuted reports in a section of media that the power connection to the ancestral house of legendary freedom fighter Bhagat Singh at Khatkar Kalan was disconnected.

It also clarified there was no bill pending.

"Powercom has an advance bill payment worth Rs 6,760 with them," said Deputy Commissioner Navjot Pal Singh Randhawa in an official release here.

Khatkar Kalan is the ancestral village of the iconic freedom fighter in Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar district, which was named after him.

The DC appealed to a section of the media not to use the name of the ancestral house as the emotions of lakhs of people are attached to the historic place.

Earlier, Power Minister Harbhajan Singh also clarified that the electrical connection of the ancestral house or museum of Shaheed Bhagat Singh at Khatkar Kalan was never disconnected.

The ancestral house of Bhagat Singh has a separate power connection in the name of the Department of Cultural Affairs, said the statement.
