SAD for greater fiscal autonomy to states, Sukhbir Badal sets up High Powered Panel on Federal Structure

Chandigarh, October 4, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

The Shiromani Akali Dal president Sardar Sukhbir Singh Badal today announced the setting up of high powered committee comprising senior leaders of his party to coordinate with regional and other like-minded parties in the country to ensure the setting up of a genuinely federal structure in the country.

The decision came in the wake of decision taken at a meeting of the Core Committee of the SAD held at the party headquarters here.

Announcing the decision of the president in this regard, his Principal Advisor Harcharan Singh Bains said that the high powered panel would be chaired by the party’s Secretary General S Balwinder Singh Bhunder and would also include Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra, Jathedar Manjinder Singh Sirsa and Naresh Gujral as members.

The panel would coordinate with the leaders of other regional parties as well as those who have been consistently advocating more fiscal and political autonomy to the states. Mr Badal told the Core Committee that the need for strengthening the federal structure of the country has become more pronounced in the wake of threats being posed to it in recent ties.

He said the SAD has always been in the forefront of the fight against authoritarian and unitarist tendencies in the country. “ We are a country wi8th a rich regional, cultural, religious and lingual diversity and our strength lies in realizing the full potential of the creative synergy of cooperative federalism as envisioned by our Founding Fathers of our constitution. More powers to the states will only strengthen the country further and help it emerge as a global power as “stronger states mean a stronger county just as stronger limbs mean a stronger body,” said Mr Badal.

Meanwhile, the SAD Core Committee also strongly condemned the step motherly treatment meted out to the Punjab language in Jammu and Kashmir, which had once formed a part of the Khalsa Raj. “The cultural, literary and lingual bonds between Punjab and J and K have strong and unshakeable foundations and the decision of the government to leave Punjabi out of the Official languages list is a gross injustice to the “sacred language.”

SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal has formed a special committee to fight for getting official language status to the Punjabi language in Jammu and Kashmir and for the promotion of Punjabi language, literature and culture in J and K as well as in other parts of the country with a sizable Punjabi population. The Committee has Mr Nirmal Singh Kahlon, Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra and Manjinder Singh Sirsa.
