    All Akali ministers, MLAs from Amritsar stayed away from Punjab CM's function


    JAGMOHAN SINGH
    Sunday, 17 January 2010

    AMRITSAR: All district level SAD MLAs, ministers who belonged to Amritsar district and all Akali workers including youth Akali Dal conspicuously remained absent here Sunday during the state level program of unveiling of a statue of BJP stalwart and former Member Parliament Dr. Baldev Parkash here.

    The function wasa attended by National President of BJP Nitin Gadkari, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy Chief Minister and President Shiromani Akali Dal Sukhbir Singh Badal.

    Nevertheless to say that today half page ad was released by the BJP in the section of media along with the photographs of all ruing Akali Dal MLAs and ministers it was announced that State level program would jointly be organized and attended by BJP and SAD.

    The absence of senior Akali leaders has directly passed on message for the general public that there are some differences in the SAD and BJP collation government which came on fore during the State level program organized by BJP leadership.

    Due to the conspicuous absence of Akali activists the fifty percent chairs which were arranged for the sitting of masses were seen vacant. The state level program was scheduled to start at 11.30 a.m but delayed for two and half hours. It was embarrassing time for BJP to arrange gathering during the presence of Nitin Gadkari in the city, which was his first visit in Punjab after becoming party president.

    Things did not ends up here, situation became more piquant for the State level BJP leadership, when BJP fire brand, State General Secretary and Punjab cabinet minister Lakshmi Kanta Chawla left the function in huff before Nitin Gadkari and Parkash Singh Badal could deliver their speech. The reason behind the anger of fire brand was described that her name was not announced by the stage secretary to deliver speech. Inspite of repeated attempts Chawala was not available for comments.

    Dr Baldev Prakash was among those leaders who was distributing sweets to the soldiers who attacked Golden Temple in 1984 and celebrated Diwali while innocents pilgrims who were shot by army and were injured were deprived even the water.

    So His giant statue in Amritsar's busiest Junction/Chowk is an attempt at what thye call..Mooh Chharraunna !!(of Sikhs)..TAUNTING SIKHS...as well as rubbing salt into the wounds of 1984 instead of applying salve. Actually a continuation of Saffronisation of Sikhism's Holiest City.....Giant Hoardings and Names of Chowks/junctions.major roads all reflect this rubbing salt...a CITY that Guru ramdass ji Founded...helped grow and sustain via the Harmandar Sahib which draws one of the world's largest number of tourists inspite of and despite the virtual "IGNORE AMRITSAR/DARBAR SAHIB" attitude of Govt Tourist Agencies/Information Departments/Media Adverts etc....SAD !!..what an appropriate ACRONYM because its SAD that Rules and CLOUDS hover over Punjab....and THIS is one "Cloud" that has NO SILVER LINING.

    i suspect its all a game plan....after all it gives substance if BJP MlA's then stay away from a Sikh Function....like renaming Raja sansi International Airport to Guru Ramdass International..Levelling the field for a *** for tat action to make fools of Sikhs.

    Yes, but Badal goes along with it -- instigates it. There is a silver lining BTW. Hiss pocket have a silver lining.
