While talking with the select media, he said that the ABVP under the patronage of BJP has made in-roads into the educational institutions in Punjab, Haryana and Delhi and were poisoning the peaceful atmosphere of the educational institutions.
Referring to President Pranab Mukherjee remarks that there should be no room in the country for the “intolerant Indian” as this nation has been a bastion of free thought, speech and expression since ancient times, Dal Khalsa head said the President should do more than the lip service. “The President should direct the Prime Minister to take suitable action against Haryana’s Minister and BJP leader Anil Vij who has branded the supporters of Delhi University student Gurmehar Kaur with pro-Pakistan brush. The minister has a wishful thinking that all those who endorsed Gurmehar Kaur’s crusade against ABVP’s fascist agenda should be thrown out of India,
Cautioning the President about the volatile situation, he said the BJP ministers in Punjab, Haryana and at Centre are openly supporting and encouraging these lumpen elements and their dirty politics.
