On Tuesday, after the release of four SAD leaders on bail in a Covid protocol violation case, the SAD leaders on Wednesday while holding a press conference here said the registration of FIRs against Akali leaders was an act which defied political and democratic values.
Shiromani Akali Dal leader and MLA Pawan Tinu along with Akali Dal urban president Kulwant Singh Mannan, while holding a press conference here on Wednesday, said rather than maintaining cordial terms and solidarity with Akali leaders, the filing of an FIR against them was a violation of democratic and political values. Leaders said under the Congress government, political leaders holding protests are being targeted. Tinu said we were only registering a protest against discrepancies in the post-matric scholarship scheme.
The cases were registered against former mayor Kamaljit Singh Bhatia, deputy mayor Parvesh Tangri, Gurdev Singh Goldy and HS Walia.
Leaders said they held a very peaceful dharna outside the residence of MP Santokh Singh Chaudhary, but due to sudden rain four senior leaders — former mayor Kamaljit Singh Bhatia, deputy mayor Parvesh Tangri, Gurdev Singh Goldy and HS Walia— barged into Chaudhary’s house to take cover amidst heavy rains.
They said on the insistence of the gunman they promptly left the premises. “We are all responsible people. But the FIR against senior leaders for merely entering the premises is condemnable.”
