Punjab: SAD favours Para-Olympians, condemns ‘high handedness’ meted out by Govt

Chandigarh, November 28 – The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today condemned the high handedness meted out to Para – Olympic sports persons who had come to meet chief minister Bhagwant Mann at his residence to demand fulfillment of the promises made to them by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Senior SAD leader Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said it was shameful that Sports minister Meet Hayer had failed to come out with a Sports policy for Para-Olympians besides providing jobs to them as promised. He said the callous attitude of the AAP government had forced the players to throw their medals on the road.


Dr Cheema said the seriousness of the AAP government towards Para Players could be discerned from the fact that it had not held the State Para Games as scheduled. He said even now the players had come to Chandigarh because they had been given time by the AAP government. “It is condemnable that instead of listening to their grievances and resolving them the AAP government has chosen to suppress their demands through high handed means”. Dr Cheema assured full support to the Para Players and said in case their demands were not met SAD would take up their case forcefully and ensure justice was done to them.
