CM trying to lower dignity of Sikh institutions: Sukhbir. Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief Sukhbir Singh Badal on Monday accused Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh of trying to “lower the dignity” of Sikh institutions including the SGPC by asking them to “submit” before a commission of inquiry. Captain Amarinder had on Sunday accused SGPC chief Kirpal Singh Badungar of obstructing the course of justice by refusing to appear before the Justice Ranjit Singh commission probing sacrilege cases in the state.“The commission has been set up to destroy all evidence of the Congress hand in the acts of sacrilege which were committed by our opponents merely to defame the Akali-BJP government and turn the Sikhs away from it,” Sukhbir said in a statement. He said everyone in Punjab was “aware” of the authenticity of this commission.“The utter absence of independence and neutrality of this commission is proved by the fact that it needs Amarinder to act as is its spokesperson. Amarinder’s statement criticising the SGPC chief for refusing to cooperate with this commission is really the ultimate proof of the true motives behind the setting it up,” he said.The former state deputy chief minister said the fact is that these acts of sacrilege were a part of a deep-rooted conspiracy against the then Akali-BJP government and the Congress was its prime suspect. “And now, the chief minister expects us to validate his commission of inquiry which is set up only to provide a legal cover to those very acts of sacrilege,” Sukhbir alleged.
