Punjab Congress President Sunil Jakhar said that Sukhbir Badal’s anti-Sikh face has been exposed by the Dera itself, adding that the candid admission by the Dera followers that they had supported the Akali Dal in the 2017 Assembly polls established the strong bond between them.
Punjab Congress president Sunil Jakhar on Tuesday hit out at SAD pronouncing that the revelations by way of Dera Sacha Sauda that they had prolonged guide to Sukhbir Singh Badal-led Shiromani Akali Dal in the 2017 Assembly polls have exposed the quid pro quo between each the parties.
He stated the nexus which was once suspected by using people so far has now been demonstrated to be real with the aid of the Dera’s admission of having voted for Akalis.
Addressing the media, Jakhar, who was once flanked by Cooperation Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, said that it was once unlucky that the Akali Dal claiming itself to be a ‘panthic outfit’ joined arms with a Dera that used to be excommunicated by the Panth just for the sake of political power.
“Sukhbir-led Akali Dal, in reality, backstabbed the Panth by means of hobnobbing with the Dera to continue to be in power. The admission by means of Dera followers has established beyond doubt that the deal used to be struck between Sukhbir and Dera chief and the latter used to be granted pardon and his film used to be screened across the state, much to the dismay of Punjabis.”
The Punjab Congress chief stated that Sukhbir Badal’s anti-Sikh face has been uncovered by using the Dera itself, including that the candid admission through the Dera followers that they had supported the Akali Dal in the 2017 Assembly polls established the robust bond between them. “It is crystal clear that Sukhbir had carried out some secret deal with Dera for looking for their vote and aid in the polls. The people of the state in familiar and Sikhs in specific would by no means forgive Sukhbir for this sin, which has pushed Punjab into turbulent times. “
He said that the public confession by the Dera supporters was proof that Sukhbir disregarded the hobbies of the nation and the Sikhs for the sake of his personal political interests. He stated that hitherto Dera had in no way admitted giving political assistance to any celebration however now their admission has made it clear that Akali Dal and Dera have been complementary to each other for securing their pastimes that too at the price of Punjab and its people.
“Series of unlucky occasions like desecration of Guru Granth Sahib, firing at Behbal Kalan, pardon for Dera chief and allowing the screening of the movie of Dera chief in Punjab spoke volumes of quid seasoned quo between Akali Dal and the Dera.”
He stated it was once time that the Panthic businesses must come forward and demand to excommunicate Sukhbir from Sikh Panth for open defiance of a diktat from Akal Takht by means of having a deal with these anti-Sikh forces.
