Amritsar, Punjab (January 04, 2013): Agreeing with Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh’s observation that BJP’s stalwart Narendar Modi as Prime Minister will be disastrous for the country, the Dal Khalsa said even the incumbent has failed the countrymen in general and the Sikhs in particular.
Party’s political affairs secretary Kanwar Pal Singh said as Dr Manmohan Singh has indicated that he was going to retire after the Lok Sabha elections, it was necessary to analyze his 10 years performance as PM, which to our perception is nil i.e “zero plus zero is equal to zero”.
He said it was without doubt that the march of Narendra Modi to the Prime Minister’s seat will spell doom for justice and fair play for minorities. However, he was equally critical of Dr Manmohan Singh’s performance. “Although Dr Singh on his own has managed to climb on to the highest executive post, yet he utterly failed in resolving the identity crisis of the Sikhs.
Listing his non-performance and inability to deliver on Punjab and Sikh front, he said, Punjab has been deprived of its land and water rights, Article 25 (2) (b) of the constitution still dubs “Sikhs as Hindus”, unlike Muslims and Hindus, the Sikhs have been deprived of their own personal law, the perpetrators of Nov 1984 carnage were out of reach of the so-called long arm of the law.
Despite the startling facts emerged from the Central Bureau of Investigation and National Investigation Agency’s probes into the bombings at Malegaon, Hyderabad, Ajmer and on board the Samjhauta Express, the UPA government under Manmohan Singh failed to proscribe the organizations like Abhinav Bhart and the RSS, linked to these violent acts.
“It was lack of political will of Dr Manmohan Singh that the names of the RSS and Abhinav Bharat have not been included in the long list of banned groups, which are all otherwise associated with minority and ethnic communities”.
“As Dr Singh completes his two terms in the office of the prime minister, it is ironic that the long standing disputes in the country’s peripheral states including Nagaland, Kashmir and Punjab are still hanging in air with no sincere, serious and adequate efforts to find out political resolutions to all these problems”, he claimed.
