Sarbat Khalsa-appointed ‘Jathedars’ Dhian Singh Mand, Amrik Singh Ajnala and Baljit Singh Daduwal today called upon the people of Punjab to dethrone the Badal family in the Assembly elections.
They alleged that the Badals had not only damaged the sanctity of Akal Takht, but also failed to arrest the culprits responsible for the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib.
Talking to the media at Duneke village in the district, they said the SAD-BJP government was responsible for the total failure of law and order in the state.
Mand said Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his deputy Sukhbir Badal were suppressing the voice of the people. “People from all sections in the state are determined to teach the Badal family a lesson because they have no respect for any religion,” he said.
“We have called a peace march demanding justice for the victims of police firing at Burj Jawahar Singh Wala village, but the government arrested our supporters,” he said.
