The tunnel connects Delhi Legislative Assembly to Red fort
Etawah. A tunnel like structure was discovered on Thursday, September 2 in the legislative assembly of Delhi.
According to reports, this tunnel which was discovered dates back to the British era. This tunnel goes to the Red Fort in Chandni Chowk from inside the room and was used then to bring freedom fighters to the court.
Speaking to ANI, Delhi Legislative Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel said that the tunnel connects the legislative assembly to Red Fort and was used by the Britishers to avoid comeback while moving freedom fighters.
Assembly speaker Ram Niwas Goel said
When I became an MLA in 1993, There was buzz about this tunnel and I tried to research for its history. But I didn’t get any transparency.
He further added that this place has a very rich history in the context of the freedom struggle So we aim to renovate it in a way that tourists and visitors can get a reflection of our history Instead of digging this opening further as all the roots of the tunnel have been destroyed due to metro projects and sewer installations. The room will be turned into a tourist attraction by next independence day and the work for the same has already started. It will be a shrine for freedom fighters.
