    GHANOUR (Patiala): In a bid to have one more term Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today clarified that he was against the tearing off the copies of constitution in mid 80s.

    “It was only the party’s decision which I had acceded and went to New Delhi” Badal told reporters. He said that he did it out of pressure from his party.

    Harchand Singh longowal was the president of Akali Dal and also the dictator of ‘Dharam Yudh morcha’.

    Notably, in mid 1980s, the Shiromani Akal Dal demanded the withdrawal of Article 25 of the Indian Constitution which blended the Sikhs as Hindus. In 1983 the Akali leaders burnt copied of Article 25 in front of Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib, close to the Parliament House, to demonstrate their disapproval of the Article.

    Badal however said that the SAD-BJP alliance would create a history in the Punjab politics thereby forming its next government in succession solely on the plank of all round development and prosperity after the next assembly elections in the state.

    HE was addressing the press conference during the lunch break of sangat darshan program held here at local Anaj Mandi. ........................................

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!
