Amritsar, Punjab (August 30, 2013): In the wake of Canadian government clarifying that the country has not refused protection to Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, who recently cancelled his trip to Vancouver citing security reasons the Dal Khalsa has taken SAD president to task. The organization has asked the Junior Badal to step down on moral grounds for bluffing and misleading the people.
In a hard hitting statement party’s spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh quoted statement of Jean-Bruno Villeneuve, spokesperson for the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development that “we never received a formal request for security, so such a request could not have been refused”.
Both the official of Indian foreign ministry and the Sukhbir Badal has told lie on the matter thus making mockery of the people of Punjab. Let Sukhbir to clarify his position as to what prompted him to speak lie and reveal the real reason behind his cancellation of the trip”. He said for the people of Punjab, ‘the cat is out of the bag’. “The real reason for cancelation is the fear of litigation and possible detention by Canadian legal system. Security concern was a mere smoke screen”.
He reminded that on August 23, their group head wrote an open letter to the president of the Shiromani Akali Dal, in which he strongly contested the claims made by the Indian foreign ministry that the Canadian government has refused to provide adequate security cover to you.
Quoting from the letter, the party spokesperson said “On the issue of facilitating your tour to Canada, the Central government has played the role of spoilsport”.
