Chandigarh – Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader and former Cabinet Minister Bikram Singh Majithia and Dr Daljit Singh Cheema on Monday demanded that appropriate legal action under the anti- sedition laws be taken against the AAP leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira for his open support to the initiatives aimed at dismemberment of the country. The Akali leaders were referring to the reported statements of Khaira for supporting the so-called Referendum 2020, which had seeking a separate homeland for the Sikhs outside India.
Addressing media persons at the party headquarters, Majithia also wanted the AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal to break his silence on the support lent by his state unit leader Khaira to the initiatives aimed at breaking the unity and integrity of the country. The two leaders ridiculed Khaira’s attempts to link the socalled Referendum 2020 to genuine Sikh grievances, saying that “Khaira has spent 23 of his 25 years in politics with the Congress party. All this while, which was much closer to the tragic events of 1984 than now, he has stood by the very people who are responsible for discrimination and injustice against the Sikhs for which he pretends to seek relief now.”“All these years, he stood in the same queue and dined on the same table as Jagdish Tytler’s and Sajjan Kumar’s and never once opened his mouth against them. And now suddenly, on the eve of his aborted trip to Canada, he has started talking about these issues to impress his reported sponsors there. It is all about how many dollars per word,” said the two leaders. Majithia and Dr Cheema said that the tragic part is that while such mercenaries always earn a fortune, it is the innocent Sikh masses that really have to pay a heavy price for the adventurism of these opportunistic elements.
