Led by SYP head Paramjit Singh Tanda, the activists undertook march on motorcycles in the city and concluded at Darbar Sahib.

Dal Khalsa is also staunch votary of original calendar and is vehemently opposing the move to revert to Bikrami calendar. Its spokesperson Kanwarpal Singh today addressed the rally at party office today.

He urged the Akal Takht jathedar to reject the demand of Sant Samaj and Nanaksar Samparda for reverting to Bikrami. He said the calendar was identity marker of Sikhs and killing it means playing into the hands of anti-Sikh forces.

Referring to Congress, SAD and BJP suddenly coming out of slumber on drug menace, he said all the three were responsible for rampant rise in drug trafficking and menace. Accusing them for shedding crocodile tears, he said Congress remained in power in the state and centre. SAD-BJP was in power since last 8 years. “Who is blaming whom, when all had their share of ruining the lives of younger generation”.

The Dal Khalsa has asked the Jathedar of the Akal Takht to convene a meeting of representatives of Panthic groups and legal experts to discuss the overall situation vis-a-vis Sikh detainees in the light of interim order passed by the constitutional bench of 5 Judges headed by the Chief Justice of Supreme Court on July 9, 2014 restraining the state governments in exercising its power of remission to life convicts.

To remove this legal hurdle, the order of the apex court has to be revoked and for that purpose the SGPC or any other Sikh institution would have to move to the apex court”, said Kanwar Pal. “The meet should chalk out next strategy not only to seek the release of detainees but also to save the life of Gurbakash Singh, whose health is going down day by day because of his fast unto death since Nov 14”, he argued.

He asked the Punjab government to clear its stand on upcoming film of controversial head of heretical cult Gurmit Ram Rahim vis-à-vis Akal Takht, SGPC and Sikh bodies seeking ban on it.
