On police crackdown on Sikh activists supporting the campaign for release of Sikh detainees who have served maximum prison terms, he said the continuous detention of Kanwarpal Singh and Harpal Singh Cheema was not based on legal reasons but political.

“There are different set of rule for different communities in India” said Dr. Manjinder Singh , Gen Secretary of Dal Khalsa. If likes of Mr. Assemanand and Ms. Mayacodnani can be released on bail who have committed much more heinous crimes, why Sikh prisoners are not being released after completion of their sentences, Dal Khalsa leader argued. It is sheer lack of will on the part of Punjab Govt.
