Chandigarh, August 12, 2021: Taking a step forward towards bringing Panthak, Political, Social and Economic change in Punjab, Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt) along with many other national and regional parties came together and formed a third front to take on the Congress and Badals in the upcoming Assembly polls.

While addressing a press conference here today, prominent leaders of various regional parties including Bibi Swaran Kaur, sister of late Babu Kanshi Ram, Patron of Aazad Samaj Party (Kanshiram), Chandra Shekhar Azad, National President of Bhim Army, Buta Singh Ransee K, President of Shiromani Akali Dal (Kirti), State President Janata Dal (Secular) Deve Gowda, Master Avtar Singh, State President of Janata Dal-United Manvinderpal Singh Benipal and National Secretary of Indian Union Muslim League (Banatwala) Coordination Committee Maqsood-ul-Haq, announced their alliance with Akali Dal (Sanyukt) led by Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa and Jathedar Ranjit Singh Brahmpura vowing to give a tough fight to the family politics in Punjab.

While, Advocate Chandra Shekhar Azad, who was not present during the press conference due to some urgent work, telephonically spoke to reporters to share their party’s priorities.

Earlier, addressing a press conference here today, Jathedar Ranjit Singh Brahmpura said that for their party, Panth is supreme but unfortunately, some anti-Panthak and anti-Punjab forces are working to undermine the Sikh spirit and ethical and religious values of Punjab. Hence, people are desperately wishing for a third alternative front who can give a tough fight to the family politics in Punjab.

He said that the Badal family had not only done a great disservice to the Sikh faith but had also badly damaged the decency of the Akal Takhat.

There is no one above Shri Akal Takhat Sahib and Jathedar of Shri Akal Takhat Sahib but as Deputy Chief Minister of the state Sukhbir Singh Badal had summoned Jathedar of Shri Akal Takhat Sahib and even passed an order to forgive those involved sacrilege of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji is a heinous act, said Jathedar Brahmpura.

Jathedar Brahmpura clarified that now is the time to remove the dominance of the Badal family from the Shiromani Akali Dal, Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee and Shri Akal Takhat Sahib and again the etiquette of Shri Akal Takhat Sahib and principle should be restored.

Addressing the media persons, Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa said that today the Badals have taken the place of the mahants who at one time treated Gurdwara as their Jagirs (their own property) and misused the power assigned to them.

“Now the right time has come that the Sikh Panth should teach a lesson to the Badals just like mahants were taught and the Badal family should be shown doors, ” said S. . Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa.

He said that today there is a need for the entire Sikh community to come together under the banner of Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt), a party that upholds the true principles of Akali Dal and create a new image of Shiromani Akali Dal.

Dhindsa said on behalf of Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt) he would assure that the dominance of the Badal family over the century-old Shiromani Akali Dal would be ended by liaising with all Panthak Peers and well-wishers of Punjab as the Badals had tarnished the image of the party which has a glorious history of many supreme sacrifices.

He further said that in the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee elections also the same candidates would be declared who are not interested in political positions and are adherents of Sikh principles. Interference of politicians in Gurdwaras will be stopped, said S. Dhindsa.

Responding to media question regarding the announcement of alliance with the parties, Dhindsa said that coming together of all these regional parties having the same Panthak ideology is the need of the hour so as to remove the traditional parties from power and to create a third strong front to bring about change as per the wishes of the people of the state.

“This alliance is their first step taken in this direction and this alliance would represent Punjab, Punjabi and Punjabiyat in the state and build a prosperous Punjab, ” saidDhindsa.

He said freeing Punjab from the clutches of various mafias currently operating in Punjab is the utmost priority of this alliance. Besides this their party would also ensure that the investment in the education sector the state would be systematically increased and the industry which had disappeared from Punjab due to increased corruption in the government machinery that functioned under Akali Dal, and now Congress would be brought back on track, added S. Dhindsa.

On the occasion, National General Secretary of Aazad Samaj Party M L Tomar and Punjab President, Sh Rajiv Kumar Lovely said that as a third front we are committed to give the responsibility of State Chief Minister to a person who can uphold the true values of Guru Sahibs and can work honestly, diligently and fearlessly for the betterment of Punjab and Punjabiyat.
