 Abohar (Face2News). 

Shiv Garg, editor and founder of Janta Kesari, the oldest vernacular of the Ferozepur-Fazilka region, is no more. He was chairman of Abohar  Press Club.

Shiv breathed his last at Street-1 residence here few minutes after he  was escorted back by his sons from a super specialty hospital where he had been under treatment for about eleven days and responded well to the treatment.

Many people reached Shivpuri cremation ground to attend  funeral despite of lockdown/curfew restriction and paid tributes. Born on December 30, 1954, Shiv Garg had launched fortnightly newsmagazine “Janta Kesari” in Hindi in 1977; the same was converted into evening-daily in 2003 and ensured its un-interrupted publication despite of mid-term odds. He had not been in good health for past few months.
