Ferozepur (Vikramaditya Sharma)

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) President Sukhbir Singh Badal today said it was condemnable that the central government did not find anything wrong with Khalsa Aid when it provided humanitarian aid in Gujarat but had unleashed the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on the NGO for stepping in to help farmers agitating peacefully on the borders of Delhi.

The SAD President was talking to newsmen after Ferozepur District Vice President Balwinder Singh Pappu Kotwal along with hundreds of supporters joined the SAD.

Sukhbir Badal said how was it possible that an organisation which was acclaimed by the country earlier had suddenly turned bad simply because it had chosen to help farmers? He said summoning people associated with Khalsa Aid by NIA was a clear sign of frustration. “The centre thinks it can weaken the farm protest by such intimidatory measures. Little does it know that the Kisan Andolan is only getting stronger due to these repressive steps”.

When questioned about the alleged foundation stone of the PGIMER satellite centre laid by the local Congress legislator, Mr Sukhbir Badal said he had got the matter verified and come to know that the Central government had been given authorisation to construct a boundary wall to keep out stray animals. He said following this the local Congress MLA misused this opportunity to befool the people. “It is unfortunate that the deputy commissioner and the senior superintendent of police played along knowing full well that a central project could not be inaugurated in this manner”. Mr Badal said as far as the project was concerned two companies had been short listed and he was reviewing it continuously.

Speaking about how officers were indulging in electoral malpractices by shifting voters from rural to urban areas in the municipal elections besides registering false cases, the SAD President said once the SAD came to power it would form a Commission and ask it to identify and investigate all instances of false cases within three months. “Due action will be taken against guilty officers” he said while asking officers to go by the law and not by the dictates of the Congress legislators.

Prominent among those present on the occasion included Janmeja Singh Sekhon, Joginder Singh Jindu, Avtar Singh Zira Vardev Singh Mann and Montu Vohra.
