Chandigarh, February 23
The 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.
Bains said that on March 1, party workers would gather in the morning in Sector 25 from where they would march towards the Vidhan Sabha. The party also paid tributes to all the farmers who lost their lives in the ongoing struggle against the three laws of the Center. The Core Committee termed these farmers as farmers and martyrs for a prosperous Punjab and said that they laid down their lives to bring justice to the future generations of Punjab. The party also lamented the demise of senior leader Bibi Satwant Kaur Sandhu and recalled her selfless services and selfless sacrifices for the Panth, Punjab, and Shiromani Akali Dal. The party also expressed grief over the death of Satbir Singh Dardi, son of senior journalist Jagjit Singh Dardi.
