Anandpur Sahib: Raghi Bhai Baldev Singh Wadala, chief of Sikh Sadbhawna Dal, has criticised the Punjab government for it’s alleged failure to take appropriate steps for securing release of Sikh political prisoners. In a written statement issued today, Bhai Baldev Singh Wadala said that if Akhileysh Yadav government of Uttar Pradesh could get Sikh political prisoner Bhai Wariam Singh released from prison, why can’t Punjab government do the same?
He also pointed out that Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy CM Sukhbir Badal have been issuing opposite statements in relation to the issue of Sikh political prisoners which, he argues, shows dual standards adopted by the Badal government.
“Punjab CM says that he has raised the issue with the Indian Home Minsiter Rajnath Singh seeking release of Sikh political prisoners, whereas Deputy CM Sukhbir Badal says that Punjab government could do nothing to get Sikh political prisoners released. Why the socalled Panthic government fails to take a clear stand on this issue?” asked Bhai Wadala.
He said that the Punjab government should recommend the release of Sikh political prisoners and send their files along with state governement’s recommendations to the Centre. “If UP government can recommend release of Bhai Wariam Singh, why can’t Badal government recommend release of Sikh political prisoners languishing in prisons of the state even after serving their minimum mandatory punishments”, he asked.
