Sikh bodies in Jammu support Dhindsa’s Akali Dal

Sikh leaders address a press conference in Jammu.

Jammu, July 9

Two days after forming a ‘parallel’ Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa on Thursday received support from some Sikh organisations of Jammu.

In a press conference, president of the J&K unit of the Shiromani Akali Dal Darbinder Singh extended full support to Dhindsa’s Akali Dal and appealed to the Sikh sangat all over the world, including Sikh Students Federation, Sikh Naujwan Sabha and Istri Akali Dal, to support Dhindsa in his fight against people who ‘tarnished’ the image of Sikhs all over the world.

He said SAD was a very old party of Punjab, formed in 1920, which had played an important role in the independence of India. “Unfortunately with due course of time the party, which had such a glorious history of sacrifices, was captured by a family, who used the party for personal gains and made huge fortunes from it for many decades,” he alleged.

Sikh organisations urged Murmu to hold elections of the DGPC. — TNS
