Patiala , April 7, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)
SAD (Taksali) has opposed the move for all party meeting, being demanded by Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal President of the SAD (Badal).
In a press release issued here today, Bir Devinder Singh, a senior leader of SAD Taksali said, Taksalis were of the considered view that there seems to be no need for convening the all party meeting in a given situation when the entire state machinery and its craft is engaged in fighting the dreaded Corona Virus.
Moreover, except an opportunity for optics; it would not be a result-oriented exercise. So, it defies logic to waste time and resources in a futile exercise.
Bir Devinder Singh aid, Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal MP and President of SAD (Badal) should be knowing that even the recent meeting of the Punjab Cabinet was conducted by video-conferencing. So, where is the compelling need to collect so many people at one place to discuss the current situation.
The Taksali Akali leader said, if Mr. Badal has something very meaningful in his mind, which he wishes to communicate to the Government of Punjab he could do so through other means of communication available with him; either by using the internet facility or by phone. And if he wishes to communicate something quite palpable to the central government, in order to handle the consequential repercussion of Covid-19 in India, then he should better, confer with his wife Mrs. Harsimrat Kaur Badal, who happens to be a member of the Union council of ministers.
The former deputy speaker said, Sukhbir Badal must bear in mind that the State was passing through unprecedented crisis of trying times and there was no place for hollow intrigues of politics.
