Babaji was upset since his first visit to Singhu, says close associate



Singhra (Karnal), December 17

Baba Ram Singh was upset since his first visit to the Singhu protest site on December 9, said his close aide Baba Satnam Singh here today.

He has been associated with Baba Ram Singh, who shot himself with his licensed pistol last evening to express support to the agitating farmers, since 1995.

“Babaji was very upset when he came back around 2.30 am on the intervening night of December 9 and 10. He also wrote his diary that day. He could not see the pain of farmers, who are protesting in the open in the cold weather. He also shared it with sangat during the satsang,” said Satnam Singh, who came from Faizabad in UP in 1995, while talking to The Tribune.

He said Babaji again visited the protest site on December 15 and gave away 500 blankets for the farmers. He had even extended a financial aid of Rs 5 lakh to the agitation during his first visit on December 9. “I accompanied him during both visits and he shared his sorrow which he felt there. But on December 16, he left for the protest site to offer prayer and took only two sewadars — Gurpartap and Manjeet — along with him,” he said.

He said this was a second sacrifice by the head sewadar of Nanaksar gurdwara for humanity. Earlier in 1982, Baba Jang Singh, who had established this gurdwara on a small land in 1972, faced bullets head-on near Parliament in Delhi during a dharam morcha, which was started from Tarn Taran to Delhi, following several deaths in a bus and train accident.

Hs said Baba Ram Singh was born on December 3, 1952, in Jagroan. After doing sewa at Nanaksar gurdwara, Jagraon, for 38 years, he came here at Nanaksar Gurdwara, Singhra, in 1990. Singhra gurdwara is associated with Nanksar gurdwara, Jagraon. — TNS
