Two days after the birth of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala's younger brother, father Balkaur Singh levelled serious allegations against the Punjab Government and the district administration.

In a video posted on social media late on Tuesday night, Balkaur Singh said that the administration is repeatedly harassing him and asking him to present the legal documents of the child. CM Bhagwant Mann can send him to jail and get him investigated, he said.

Balkaur said that he wants to request Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann to have mercy on him. His treatment should be allowed to be completed. “I am a resident here, I am not going to run away anywhere. Wherever you call me, I will appear,” he said.

Balkaur Singh appealed for patience from the government amid inquiries into his newborn son's legal status. Emphasising his late son Sidhu Moosewala's law-abiding nature, he urges authorities to prioritise the child's medical treatment.

He said, “Because of your blessings, the almighty blessed us by sending Shubhdeep back to us. But I am sad since morning. The district administration is harassing me since morning that I should supply the documents of this child. I am being asked all kinds of questions to prove that this child is legit.”

He added, “I want to make an appeal to the government especially the Chief Minister that let the treatment of my wife get over. I live here. I will continue to live here. Where ever you will summon me, I will come. “

In a message to the CM, he said: “I want to tell you in strong words that you have a habit of taking a U turn. If you are trying to harass me then come fully prepared to take me on. I am not among those who take U turns. As far as law of land is concerned I want to tell you that my son lived for 28 years by respecting the law. I, being an ex serviceman, also respect the law. I have not violated the law at any point. If I have done it then you put me in jail. Your advisors give you such advice that it becomes difficult to go back on that decision.”

Health authorities deny Balkaur Singh's charge

Punjab Health Minister Bablir Singh clarified that state government has not written any letter, rather the central government has played petty tricks and issued the letter to the family. He emphasising there is no intention to harass Sidhu Moosewala’s family. Meanwhile, health authorities in Mansa denied the Moosewala's father Balkaur's charge. The Civil Surgeon of Mansa, the home district of the Moosewala family, and the Civil Surgeon of Bathinda, where the baby was born, have denied that the Health Department had contacted the family for any details about the baby born using the the In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) technique.

Both civil surgeons said there was no provision that the Health Department needed any documents from the parents in case of IVF.

An official said that the late singer Moose Wala's father should make public any document he received from the administration seeking details of the newborn.
