Amritsar, Punjab: Accusing Parkash Singh Badal for showing Sikhs at large in a bad light to extract political mileage from New Delhi, the Dal Khalsa today asserted that Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal)’s alliance with the Hindutva party should not be construed as guarantor of Sikh-Hindu amity.
Strongly contesting the arguments of Punjab chief minister in co-relating the disturbance of peace with breaking up of their alliance with Hindutva party, Dal Khalsa spokesman Kanwar Pal Singh said the relations between two communities were not on the mercy of the relations between Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) and BJP.
He said Badal for his personal political interest was wrongly portraying the Sikh struggle. He said the Sikh struggle was based on certain principles and ideology. It wasn’t against the Hindu community.
He said while playing cheap tactics Badal was pitting one community against the other. “It’s ironic and disgusting that Badal has tried to portray as if both Sikhs and Hindus were baying for each other’s blood and that it was he (Badal) who is sole guarantor of peace between the both.
He further said the unholy alliance between both was nothing but a marriage of convenience between two political entities that were ideologically apart.
“The Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal)-BJP alliance is purely a political alliance and as opportunistic as between any other two parties”, said Singh while commenting upon Badal’s logic.
He categorically stated that Sikh community has not benefited from Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal)’s becoming BJP’s partner nor it would be at loss in case the alliance breaks up.
Neither SAD solely represents Sikh electorate nor does BJP represent all Punjabi Hindus.
Badal knows how to mislead the voter. His latest emotional chord stems from his personal insecurity, said he.
Taking Badals to task, he said both father and son had mortgaged the Panthic interests in lieu of power and pelf. Now they are feeling heat of their own follies and blunders, said he.
He asked the Badals to shun their double standards. We feel Badal has done serious damage to the Sikh cause by bending before the Hindutva forces”. Now, it’s time for him to correct his wrongdoings, he pointed out.
