    LUDHIANA: Two groups of anti-Sikhs riot victims led by Surjit Singh, president of the Danga Pirit Welfare Association and Charanjit Singh, president of the 1984 Sikh Qatl-e-Aam Peerit Action Committee engaged in clash in front of the Deputy Commissioner's office following allegations and tossed turbans.

    The incident took place when Charanjit Singh, a resident of Patiala, who was reportedly travelling to Amritsar to pay obedience at Golden Temple, made a stopover in the city. Charanjit along with his supporters formed a human chain and staged a dharna against Surjit Singh at Bharat Nagar chowk, blocking traffic for nearly 10 minutes.

    Singh alleged that Surjit Singh, president of the Danga Peerit Welfare Association, had done nothing for the cause of the riot victims. “Instead, he had pocketed huge money meant for the victims of 1984 riots.”

    He said that Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal should withdraw their party's support from Surjit Singh.

    Later Charanjit Singh handed over a memorandum to ADC (general) SR Kaler and sat in front of the DC office. In the meantime, Surjit, who was present in the court complex, came to know about Charanjit’s presence at the mini-secretariat.

    Surjit along with his supporters, including women, reached the DC office and entered into heated arguments with Charanjit. Both the groups then exchanged blows. Surjit alleged that Charanjit manhandled two women workers of his association and tore their clothes.

    Both the groups later lodged a written complaint against each other. Surjit alleged that Charanjit had visited several districts to garner support of the riot victims, but flailed in his endeavour after which he (Charanjit) visited the city to deliberately malign his image.

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!
