Dal Khalsa urges Capt Amarinder to join prayers at gurdwara to commemorate the attack on Darbar Sahib. Dal Khalsa on Sunday asked Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh to join prayers at any of the historic gurdwaras in the memory of those who lost lives in the deadly attack on Darbar Sahib and 37 others gurdwaras in June 1984.Party leader Satnam Singh said Captain Amarinder Singh had resigned from Congress in protest against Operation Blue Star. “Capt Amarinder must visit gurdwara on June 6 and join Ardas Samagam being organized by the SGPC at historic gurdwaras across the state”, he said, adding that as a Sikh, we are hopeful that Amarinder Singh has not forgotten the deadly attack on Darbar Sahib.On SAD (Amritsar) showing disagreement with their Amritsar bandh call, party spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh said that difference of perception and thoughts among Panthic groups was an open secret. “The call has been given by our group and airing differences by any faction in public would set a bad precedent. Had SAD (Amritsar) President Simranjit Singh Mann approached us, we would have explained our point of view”, he said.Reiterating their group’s shutdown call on June 6, Kanwar Pal Singh said that from last four consecutive years, the people in Amritsar have been responding to their appeal. “We never forced any one to close their shops nor do we believe in imposing ours beliefs on others. Our group has always led peaceful bandh and we appeal to all those who were criticizing us that they should not do so for the sake of criticism”, he added. Kanwar Pal Singh clarified that shutting business establishments won’t make any effect on public visiting Darbar Sahib, as transportation won’t be disturbed.
