    Cong MLA produces list of blacklisted Sikhs
    living abroad, asks govt to act

    Saturday, February 27, 2010.

    Jalandhar: Producing a document containing names of blacklisted Sikhs living abroad, a Congress MLA in Punjab today said deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal's plea that he could not take up their cases as details about them were not available was just an excuse to evade responsibility.

    "The deputy CM demanding a list of such Sikhs from the Centre is nothing but an attempt to hoodwink the community," Bholath MLA Sukhpal Khaira told reporters and produced a list of 101 black listed Sikhs which he claimed to have procured from the police.

    Union home minister P Chidambram recently asked Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal to provide information about black listed Sikhs to allow them to visit India.

    "I got the list of 101 black listed Sikhs from none other than the Punjab police," said Khaira, adding that although the number of black listed Sikhs was much higher, yet Sukhbir Badal could begin taking up the cases with this list

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
