Chandigarh, January 18

Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Thursday questioned the silence of president of the SGPC Harjinder Singh Dhami over the statement of MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal, equating the election symbol of the Akali Dal with that of scales of Guru Nanak Dev.

The Chief Minister said it was surprising that though Harsimrat had bruised the psyche of every Sikh by giving such irresponsible and baseless statements, the SGPC was mum over the issue. He said this showed that Dhami was nothing more than a loyal volunteer of the Akali Dal in general and the Badal family in particular.

Mann said it was surprising that the SGPC chief had turned a blind eye to all misdeeds of his masters, hurting the sentiments of the entire community.

The Chief Minister said the statement came on the day of Maghi but the stoic silence of Dhami had vindicated his stand that the SGPC chief was merely a puppet in the hands of the Badals.

Mann cautioned the SGPC chief that the Sangat would not forgive him for this ‘policy of appeasement’ towards their masters and teach him a lesson.
