Punjab Tribune Bureau | October 30, 2018 05:02 PM

Are Taksali leaders Ranjit Singh Brahmpura, Rattan Singh Ajnala, Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, Sewa Singh Sekhwan & Bibi Kiranjot Kaur not included in the party or SAD President considers family as the party itself, questions Sidhu

Badals turned SAD into a 'Private Limited Company' 

Engulfed in love for the son, Parkash Singh Badal behaving like Dhritrashtra

Badals resorting to politics of lowest order 

CHANDIGARH: The Congress leader and Cabinet Minister, Punjab,  Navjot Singh Sidhu today launched a scathing attack on the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and thundered that the SAD especially it's President Sukhbir Singh Badal has become adept at belting out packs of lies and has reneged on resigning as is evident from the SAD President's statement in Darbar Sahib that he is ready to resign if the party wills it so.

Attacking further,  Sidhu questioned that are Taksali leaders such as Ranjit Singh Brahmpura, Rattan Singh Ajnala, Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa and Sewa Singh Sekhwan (all core committee members) and Bibi Kiranjot Kaur (Maternal Granddaughter of Master Tara Singh) not included in the party and whose resignations you have still not accepted. Or you consider only your family as the party itself, said  Sidhu. The minister also said that SAD President is fast changing colors like a chameleon.

Divulging more,  Sidhu said that these Taksali leaders have clearly voiced their disenchantment with the way SAD President is functioning which resembles that of a dictator. Terming the revolt of the Taksali leaders as unprecedented,  Sidhu said that the writing on the wall is clear for the Badals. 

Taking the attack into the SAD ranks,  Sidhu said that Badal family has turned century old party into a private limited company and Parkash Singh Badal is so engulfed in his love for his son that he has been behaving like Dhritrashtra by being blind to the reality. The Badal family amassed a huge fortune by looting Punjab as is evident from the five-star hotels owned by the family while in power. 

The cabinet minister further said that what kind of a democracy is the Badal family practicing that all posts and power has been confined to the family with others treated like nothing. Why was Harsimrat Kaur Badal preferred over experienced leaders at the time of formation of Union Council of Ministers in 2014, asked  Sidhu. 

Castigating Parkash Singh Badal for speaking blatant lies,  Sidhu said that the former is stooping to the lowest level on the issue of rail tragedy in Amritsar and asking that Him (Navjot Singh Sidhu) was direct whereas it is a fact that he was in Kerala at that time. And furthermore, the Hon'ble court has dismissed the petition seeking to embroil him ( Sidhu) in the matter. 

Sidhu questioned that Parkash Singh Badal didn't care to visit Amritsar even once since the tragedy and is instead pointing out fingers at him. 

The minister made it clear that the truth is that the Badals want to deflect the attention from their horrendous role in Bargari incident but the people of Punjab have seen through their devious ploy and would give them a befitting reply. 

Reiterating his commitment towards the people,  Sidhu said that he would always stand shoulder to shoulder with the people in their hour of need as their welfare is an article of faith with him.
