The exhibition will continue to display the horrors of partition till August 14, and is open to the public. This exhibition, amongst other platforms, is also being displayed at 188 outlets of Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd (HPCL) across the country. PD Singh, while speaking on the occasion, remembered the horrors of partition and complemented HPCL and MOP & NG for showcasing the horrors of partition.

“The partition of India in its most basic form is a story of unprecedented human displacement and forced migration. It is a story in which millions sought new homes in environments that were alien and resistive. More than being a story of a violent divide based on faith and religion it is also a story of how a way of life and ages of co-existence came to a sudden and dramatic end”, he said.
