Chandigarh, July 18, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab President and MP Bhagwant Mann has questioned the stoic silence of the Badal family over the serious allegations leveled against Sukhbir Singh Badal for gifting a Guru Gobind Singh-like attire to the Dera Sirsa chief.
Through a statement issued from party headquarters in Chandigarh and on social media on Saturday, Bhagwant Mann has demanded confiscation of passports of former Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, SAD (Badal) President and MP Sukhbir Singh Badal, Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal and close relative of Badal family Bikram Singh Majithia. He said that by maintaining silence on such serious allegations, the Badals had partially confessed to the allegation.
Mann said “The allegations are of serious nature which has hurt the religious sentiments of the Sikh. Various Panthic organizations have been demanding the expulsion of Sukhbir Singh Badal from the Panth through memorandums handed over to the Jathedars of Sri Akal Takht Sahib. I am amazed that Sardar Parkash Singh Badal, who is considered to be the greatest Panthic leader and self-proclaimed ‘Fakhar-e-Kaum’, is silent. Sukhbir, Harsimrat and Majithia, among others, are also silent. Isn’t this partial confession by the Badals?”
Bhagwant Mann alleged that the one and only Gobind Singh Longowal had spoken in favour of the Badals as their advocate, but he should also make clear if he had issued the statement in favour of the Badals as the SGPC President or as a member of the core committee of the Badal party.
The AAP MP said that the investigation into the Bargari-Behbal Kalan incidents was heading towards the Badals, adding that in view of the emerging developments, the Badal and Majithia families might flee the country, demanding immediate confiscation of their passports so that could not run away fearing a slew of investigation pending against them as also from the peoples’ court.
