Damdami Taksal Ajnala And Sangharsh Committee has also planned to hold three ‘Vangar Marchs’ from May 25 to May 29
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. Besides, it has also planned to hold three ‘Vangar Marchs’ from May 25 to May 29.
The committee convener Gurdeep Singh Bathinda, Jasvir Singh Khandoor, Bhai Amrik Singh Ajnala, Jathedar Tarlok Singh Dalla and Daily ‘Pehredar’ editor Jaspal Singh Heran held press conference here to announce the programme.
In the conference, the Sikh leaders expressed deep worry over deteriorating health of Bapu Surat Singh. They said that the Punjab and the Union government are not serious in meeting the demands of Bapu Surat Singh and are deliberately ignoring the sensitive issue.
They said that the government could not ignore the Sikh struggle. Condemning the act of SGPC of imposing ban on entry of struggling Sikhs in Gurdwara Amb Sahib Mohali on May 20, they demanded the SGPC president be summoned for the act at Sri Akal Takht Sahib by its Jathedar.
Explaining about the plan of ‘Vangar March’, the committee members said that three marches would be organized from Sri Akal Takht Sahib (May 25), Takht Sri Kesgarh Sahib (May 27) and Takht Sri Damdama Sahib Talwandi Sabo (May 29). All these processions will be concluded at residence of Bapu Surat Singh at village Hasanpur (district Ludhiana).
The Sikh activists also announced to take up the issue with international human rights organizations. Jasbir Singh Khandoor said that reinstatement of the police cat Gurmeet Pinki could not be tolerated.
It is worth mentioning that the hunger strike of old aged Bapu Jee has concluded 128th day.
Damdami Taksal (Ajnala faction), headed by Bhai Amrik Singh Ajnala, has announced to hold a march from Amritsar to Hassanpur (Ludhiana) in support of Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa’s struggle. Bhai Amrik Singh Ajnala has issued an appeal to the Sikh masses to come out openly to support Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa who remains on fast unto death seeking release of Sikh political prisoners jailed in India.
It may be recalled that Bapu Surat Singh (82) is on continuous hunger strike since January 16. He is demanding release of Sikh political prisoners who have already completed minimum mandatory terms of their sentences.
Police kept him on force-feeding through his nose for about two months at the Civil Hospital in Ludhiana. He was released by the police on April 24 after his family members met President of India.
Earlier another Gurbaksh Singh had twice started “fast unto death” seeking release of these prisoners, but he ended his fast at one pretext or the other.
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.
