    Ruling SAD-BJP alliance in Punjab on verge of split

    BJP ministers boycott cabinet meeting
    CHANDIGARH: The ruling alliance of Shiromani Akali Dal and BJP in Pun jab is on the verge of split following serious differences erupted between the two parties. The four BJP ministers on Thursday boycotted the cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.

    It is learnt that BJP minister took the decision to boycott the cabinet meeting in protest against abusive language used by SAD MAL Sarabjit Singh Makkra against Industry minister Manoranjan Kalia. Makkar yesterday went to house of Kalia for some work related to Kalia's department. Makkar reportedly accused Kalia for deliberately delaying the work. According to BJP sources Makkar abused Kalia in front of many visitors at his home.

    Makkar who is considered to be close to SAD president and deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal has reportedly been asked by Chief Minister to apologise from Kalia. Sukhbir Badal is presently out of country and he has been informed of developments. Balbir Punj BJP secretary and in charge of Punjab affairs told media persons that they should ask Badal about what is happening in Punjab. Rajinder Bhandari state unit president has said that they would tolerate insult of its ministers.

    Though Makkar issue is immediate reason of bad blood between alliance partners, the cold war between the two was going on since long. The SAD and BJP ministers reportedly are not accommodating workers of each other and tension prevailed in the alliance since long. Last year too BJP MLA had submitted their resignations in protest against highhandedness of SAD in Municipal Corporation elections.

    It is believed that BJP was eying the post of deputy Chief Minister and they are using the Makkar issue to pressurise Badal to offer them post of deputy CM. Sukjhjbir Badal would step down from the post of deputy CM in first week of July. He would be completing six months in the office on July 20 and he was not yet contested election to become MLA. Since there is no assembly by-election before July 20, he is expected to resign before Vidhan Sabha session beginning July 3.

    One Minister Mr Makker Abused a BJP Minister as illegal construction of him was not allowed in Jallandher. Due to Alliance with BJP, Badal is soft on Hindutva but things does not end here. Badal has a tendency to stay quite on self criticism, yet as Jathedar of Akal Takhat is under his Control So, He tends to ignore attacks on Sikhi,while keeping mum. Disgusting as while we do not reply the charge then people deem us guilty or weak.

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!
