SAD's Sukhbir Singh Badal takes on 'puppet AAP regime' for 'undeclared emergency'

Chandigarh, March 20: Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief Sukhbir Singh Badal on Monday came down heavily against “puppet AAP regime" in Punjab for undeclared emergency and reign of repression and terror let loose in the state.

The SAD chief also warned against “dangerous conspiracies to defame the most patriotic Sikh community for communal polarisation and electoral gains. The same conspiracies were hatched and implemented by the Congress in the past and now the present regime is following in their footsteps to set Punjab on fire". 

Sukhbir Singh Badal claimed that the government, led by Parkash Singh Badal, had pulled the state out of the "bloody cycle of terror and repression" and started an era of peace and progress. “But the govts that followed have pushed the state back into the jaws of insecurity and repression reminiscent of the dark and tragic era of the eighties,” he alleged. 

The SAD president said the Sikhs were the most patriotic people and had made the greatest sacrifices for securing and safeguarding the independence, unity and integrity of India. "We will do so again whenever the country needs it.  This is our country and the Sikhs need no certificate from anyone on their patriotism,” said Sukhbir Badal in a statement released here after an emergent meeting of senior leaders of the party.

He assured that the people of Punjab that the SAD “will fight all forces out to disturb peace and harmony here". He said the SAD was the champion of the rights and a guarantor of peace and "Sarbat da Bhala.” He demanded the immediate release of all innocents arrested in the ongoing crackdown.
