Chandigarh, Aug 31: The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leadership today said the party would unitedly fight the conspiracy hatched by the Congress in league with radical groups to belittle the contribution of SAD patron Parkash Singh Badal towards the Sikh panth as well as Punjab.
Terming the recent attempts to tarnish the image of the five times chief minister, senior SAD leaders Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, Balwinder Singh Bhundur, Jathedar Tota Singh and Sewa Singh Sekhwan said the Congress party was targeting the Sikh panth as well as trying to divide the community as per its old policy of divide and rule by leading a malicious and mischievous campaign against former Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.
“Instead of pointing fingers at a towering personality who has been jailed for sixteen years in the duty of the people, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh should tell why he was talking with the centre on the eve of Operation Blue Star.The Chief Minister has also made it clear that Mr Badal did not fall into his trap and did not accompany him to Delhi”, they added.
They said it was on record that even the biased and politicized Ranjit Singh Commission, which had been rejected by the SAD, had failed to indict Mr Badal despite its best attempts. (UNI)
