Rail Roko on May 31:
Gurdeep Singh Bathinda told SSN that railway tracks connecting Amritsar-Delhi junctions will be blocked on May 31st for two hours (from 12pm to 2pm) to protest against inaction of Punjab and Indian government in the case of Sikh political prisoners.
In order to strengthen struggle initiated by Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa for the release of the Sikh political prisoners, the Sangharsh Committee has announced to jam the railway traffic on Delhi-Amritsar track on May 31 from 12 PM to 2 PM.
Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa’s struggle:
It is notable that Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa is on fast unto death from 135 days seeking release of political Sikh Prisoners who have already served their mandatory terms. Police kept him on force-feeding through feeding tube for about two months at the Civil Hospital in Ludhiana. He was released by the police on April 24 after the members of Struggle Committee approached President of India.
Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa says that he is determined to end his life if the government fails to respond to his call. “I am determined that I will not end my hunger-strike in any case unless the government releases the concerned Sikh political prisoners. It’s not only an issue of release of Sikh political prisoners, it’s also an issue of sanctity of Ardas of a Sikh”, Bapu Surat Singh has repeatedly declared.
