Chandigarh, April 8
Late Captain Kanwaljit Singh’s son Jasjit Singh Bunny today returned into the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on the demand of Akali workers of the Banur constituency and said he was placing himself at the disposal of “father-like figure of Parkash Singh Badal”.

The turnaround was scripted at his sector nine residence by his mother Sarabjit Kaur as well as by Capt Kanwaljit’s supporters, who held party meetings at various places in the constituency before gathering at his residence to make a “final appeal”.

According to sources, Bunny’s mother made it clear in the afternoon itself that the family belonged to the SAD and had not left it. This was followed by an appeal to party workers who prevailed upon Bunny to stay with the SAD.

Bunny, on his part, announced that he had taken back his decision to resign from the SAD. He said he had taken his earlier decision in response to his conscience but the voice of the ‘sangat’ was supreme. Bunny said since his father had family relations with people of Banur and the people wanted him to stay in the SAD he was bowing his head before their wishes. “I place myself at the disposal of father-like figure of Parkash Singh Badal,” he said.

Later, Bunny’s family, including his mother, uncle Col AS Gill, aunt Harpreet Kaur, sister Manpreet and brother-in-law DS Gill held a joint press conference and said they honoured the decision of the ‘sangat’ and said such decisions were always correct, supreme and final.
