Bathinda May 4: Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal blasted the senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh for his attempts to hold  the Sikhs, especially the devout and innocent Sikh pilgrims guilty of spreading the Coronavirus.

 Mr Badal said that it would be  insane to link the Sikh pilgrims from Nanded Sahib with the spread of Coronavirus even in Punjab. “Everyone  knows that the virus is a global issue and that it had already been active in Punjab for more than a month before the pilgrims even started moving towards the state,” said Mr Badal in a statement here this afternoon.

The SAD leader expressed his opinion in the wake of a tweeted reference by Digvijay Singh linking the Sikh pilgrims with the spread of Coronavirus in Punjab.   “The government  is the villain while the pilgrims are the victims of this villainy,” said Mr Badal, and asked the CM, his government and  party to  stop demonizing the   Nanded Sahib pilgrims for the Coronavirus  in Punjab.

Mr Badal defended his party’s efforts to bring the pilgrims back from Nanded Sahib. “Both personally and as party president of the SAD, I take full responsibility for the decision to demand the return  of these pilgrims back to Punjab. Not just the pilgrims, I want every Punjabi beleaguered anywhere in the world to be brought back home.  This is being done all over the world. The only thing the government has to do is to follow the medical norms on incoming people.”

Mr Badal said that the SAD and the SGPC have repeatedly  declared that they would take  full responsibility for  looking after the pilgrims and every other Punjabi  in every respect in their hour of need, including providing  facilities for comfortable quarantine.
