Amritsar — ‘‘As a matter of natural justice in the interests of clean public life and in the interests of national unity, an inquiry into the November riots must be held by a Supreme Court judge. Those who were found guilty should be punished irrespective of the office they may or may not be holding.”

This was the general consensus at the conclusion of a sixhour symposium on the topic: ‘An academic approach to the Punjab problem,” organized at the Khalsa College here on Sunday.


Punjabi intellectuals drawn from various fields participated in the symposium; among them were journalist, Mr. Kuldip Nayar former Union minister, Mr. I. K. Gujral and Lt.Gen. J. S. Aurora (retd.).

The symposium, presided over by Lt.Gen. Aurora, arrived at the consensus that efforts should be made to restore harmony in Punjab.
