Amritsar, May 25
Various Sikh leaders today gathered near Beas despite the fact that the Shiv Sena had already called off its “Lalkar” rally three days ago.
Sikh hardliners, including parallel “Jathedars” Dhian Singh Mand and Amrik Singh Ajnala, assembled near the Beas bridge. A heavy police force was deployed. Mand said Lalkar rally was allegedly sponsored by the ruling SAD-BJP alliance and other communal forces. They sent a memorandum to Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki demanding action against the activists who tried to “disturb” peace in the state.
Various Sikh activists, who were headed towards Beas to take part in “Anakh” rally, were detained in Jalandhar. — TNS
