Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s Statue To Be Installed In France


The statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh will be installed in France’s Saint-Tropez town. The town is the birth place of Army General Jean-Francois Allard. The installation will be held in September this year and for the installation ceremony Henri Prevosat-Allard, Deputy Mayor and in-charge of tourism of Saint-Tropez met Punjab Tourism Minister Sohan Singh Thandal and invited him to the installation ceremony of Singh’s statue in France.

Maharaja Ranjit Singh was the founder of the Sikh Empire who came to power in the Indian subcontinent in the early half of the 19th century. The empire based in the Punjab region existed from 1799 to 1849. It was forged on the foundations of the Dal Khalsa, under the leadership of Ranjit Singh from a collection of autonomous Sikh Misls.

The installation of the statue is a matter of great pride for Punjab and will herald a new epoch of Punjab-France relations and will boost tourism. On the occasion, Henri has also invited Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal to Saint-Tropez on September 17 when the statues of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, General Allard and his wife Bannou Pan Dei will be installed. In September, the Indian embassy in France will hold also an exhibition on the life of the king.

Henri informed the Chief Minister that Gen. Allard (French) along with Gen. Ventura (Italian) served in the army of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and both made an enormous contribution for the modernization of his military through their strategic experience and raised Fauj-i-khas, the “special” or “royal” brigade.

Extra Info :
Punjab has announced to hand over the statue to the French ambassador to India, in June and the same will be installed at Saint-Tropez on 17 September.
