On being asked specifically to share his views about Sikh Referendum 2020, former MP said “These things are going around but those who want to hold referendum by 2020 they should tell me … that referendum is what one country holds in that country, like British government held a referendum in Scotland last year. About these banners of referendum… can Sikhs for justice hold a referendum in cooperation with India? Misguiding people in this way …”

On being asked that if he was not in support of referendum 2020 by Sikhs for justice, S. Simranjit Singh Mann sad that he was in favour (of referendum) but it was not possible (this way). Legally and constitutionally it is only possible if a country holds a referendum itself or the United Nations’ Security Council hold the plebiscite, like a resolution was passed regarding Kashmir in 1948.

He further said that no private party like justice party (Sikhs For Justice) cannot go in United Nations (for calling out a referendum). (For this purpose) an independent country will have to take a stand and get a resolution passed, only then the United Nations would be able to enter in our issue.

“Sikhs For Justice have Legal Experts they should explain us that … legally and really… how it is possible?” he added.
