Shiromani Akali Dal president and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today launched a scathing attack on the Congress stating the party, which was steeped in slavery to the Gandhi family, was again trying to vitiate the atmosphere to disturb peace and communal amity in the State. He said these nefarious designs would not succeed because the people of Punjab has seen through their game plan. He said that the Congress was again trying to create divisions within the Sikhs under the garb of Sarbat Khalsa so as to again take the state back to the anarchy prone period of 84’. He added that Shiromani Akali Dal would not allow the Congress to succeed in fulfilling its policy of divide and rule.
Addressing a meeting, in S.P. Gardens here in connection with the Sadbhavana rally to be held on December 1, the Deputy Chief Minister informed that the history of SAD dated back to 95 years and it had seen many struggles in the past and this time too it would emerge from the present crisis with flying colours.
S. Badal said that the sikh community was being misled in the name of sarbat Khalsa by the congress party and other opposition parties who were trying every trick up their sleeve to disturb the communal harmony of the state. He said the recent November 10 gathering was a clear demonstration of the fact that these parties again wanted to take the state back to the period of 84’.
