The Shiromani Akali Dal on Saturday took strong notice of the threat issued by Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) of Haryana to forcefully stop vehicles of Punjabis from entering Haryana on July 10. SAD termed this act as unfortunate, illegal, unconstitutional and highly dangerous.
SAD Secretary, Spokesman and former Education Minister Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said that it was surprising that a responsible political party is giving call for such a programme which can directly result in bloody clashes between the people of Punjab and Haryana.
He said that this decision of INLD has reminded the people of 1982 ASIAN games during which people from Punjab particularly Sikhs who were going to witness these games were dragged out of their vehicles and were humiliated on largescale.
Dr Cheema further said that political parties from Haryana should desist from indulging in such inciting activities and should not forget their responsibilities while trying to score points in political battle on SYL issue. He said that neither such bogus threats can scare Punjabis nor can stop them from entering Haryana.
Taking serious notice of this threat SAD has urged Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to take serious notice of threat issued by INLD and ensure safety of Punjabis and smooth flow of traffic from Punjab to Delhi via Haryana and vice-versa.
