Chandigarh, February 23The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) will cordon off the Punjab Vidhan Sabha on March 1, the inaugural day of the forthcoming budget session. Giving details of the decisions taken in the party’s core committee meeting under the chairmanship of the SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal, the Chief of the Principal advisor to protest Harcharan Bains said that crude oil prices falling in the international market, diesel, petrol and cooking gas prices will continue to plummet due to the hike in power tariffs and tax hikes by the Central and state governments. He said that the meeting also condemned the apathy shown by the Congress Government towards Dalit youth by refusing to grant post-matric scholarships. The party termed the refusal of the Indian government to allow the Sikh group to visit Sri Nankana Sahib in Pakistan under the pretext of corona as a major attack on religious sentiments while the government itself was making big claims of success against the coronavirus.
The party made it clear that the present government on the throne of Delhi was addicted to power and did not care about the sentiments of the people of the country, especially the Sikhs and other minorities. He said that all other travel activities of the government and private citizens were going on without any virus but the government saw only the religious pilgrimage of Sikhs as a threat to health.
