Have written to PM Narendra Modi urging him to review the central directive extending BSF jurisdiction: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Have written to PM Narendra Modi urging him to review the central directive extending BSF jurisdiction to over 50 kms deep from the international border of Punjab.

Also conveyed to him the urgent need to have the decision rescinded along with 3 farm laws.

I wish to remind the PM that he was one of the most vocal champions of fiscal & political autonomy to states & as Gujarat CM had objected to a similar directive of then UPA govt.

Deploying BSF with sweeping powers amounts to imposing President’s Rule through the back door.

Akali Dal has always behaved responsibly.. : Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal:

It’s condemnable how Charanjit Channi is downplaying dangers posed by Centre’s move to increase jurisdiction of BSF in nearly half of Punjab.

He speaks with a forked tongue on the issue; on one hand he says there’s no need to spread panic, on the other he offers an all party meet!

Why is CM objecting to the move if he thinks SAD is needlessly worried?

He was spreading the Centre’s narrative that the move is not a major violation of the state’s autonomy & spoke up after being cornered by us. And why didn’t he hold any protest on the issue till now?

Already Punjabis are apprehensive as to why senior police officers are now reporting to BSF. Instead of correcting this narrative, CM is accusing us of provoking people.

Akali Dal has always behaved responsibly; in contrast Cong has always divided the State on communal lines.

The unilateral decision of the Centre to exponentially increase the territorial jurisdiction of the BSF in Punjab is an outright attack on the federal structure: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, AKali Dal:

The unilateral decision of the Centre to exponentially increase the territorial jurisdiction of the BSF in Punjab is an outright attack on the federal structure imbibed in the very essence of our constitution.

This needs to be dealt with at a level above partisan lines.

Hence, I would humbly request all parties to come together against this draconian move and work as a united front.

I implore CM Charanjit Channi to convene an all-party meet at the earliest so that the course of action can be decided at the earliest.

Akali Dal demands immediate arrest of Ashish Misra whose vehicle crushed 3 farmers & seriously injured 8 others: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Akali Dal demands immediate arrest of MoS Home Affairs Ajay Misra’s son Ashish whose vehicle crushed 3 farmers & seriously injured 8 others who were protesting peacefully against the 3 farm laws at Lakhimpur Kheri.

No one can be allowed to misuse authority in such a way.

Ashish Misra should be subjected to exemplary punishment.

Such brutality against the Annadata is intolerable.

Capt Amarinder’s resignation is a self admission by Congress & its high command that the party failed Punjab: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Capt Amarinder’s resignation is a self admission by Congress & its high command that the party failed Punjab & has nothing to show for nearly 5 years of governance.

It failed to undertake any development or infra projects.

Capt. has also been punished by nature for lying with Gutka Sahib in hand.

A mere change of guard won’t save INC Punjab’s sinking ship in Punjab.

Its ministers & MLAs are running sand, liquor & drug mafias while looting Punjab.

The devious ploy by Congress high command to avert a backlash against the party by putting the blame on one person alone won’t succeed.

Akali Dal will observe Sept 17 as ‘Black Day’: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Akali Dal will observe Sept 17, the day three Farm Laws were passed in 2020, as ‘Black Day’.

We request our farmer brothers to join us in this historic march in Delhi, from Gurdwara Rakabganj Sahib to Parliament, to lodge a protest against Govt of India for passing these black laws.

Akali Dal core committee has decided to reschedule ‘Gall Punjab Di’ campaign by 6 days: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Akali Dal core committee has decided to reschedule ‘Gall Punjab Di’ campaign by 6 days.

We have formed a 3-member committee comprising BS Bhundar, Prof PS Chandumajra & MS Sirsa to talk to farmer organisations & remove all misunderstandings.

Campaign will restart from Amloh on Sept 10.

The core committee also resolved that Punjabis must take note of nefarious designs of Cong & AAP as their workers were posing as farmers to disturb Akali Dal functions.

This is being done as part of conspiracy hatched by central agencies to impose President Rule in Punjab.

We feel the BJP is behind these conspiracies as it wants to repeat the 1992 scenario and manipulate its way to power through a fake mandate.

We are ready to lay down our lives but don’t want a return of those black days which took the State back by decades.

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Akali Dal received a boost in Patiala, the hometown of Capt Amarinder, with Anu Randhawa, daughter of late Cong minister Jasjit Randhawa, joining the party along with her supporters.

Anu ji had contested last election on AAP ticket from Ghanour.

She has been appointed as VP in the SAD.

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

I’m humbled by the massive response to the Akali Dal’s ‘Gall Punjab Di’ campaign at Moga Dana Mandi rally.

Pleased to announce the candidature of former Punjab Health System Corporation Chairman Barjinder Singh Makhan Brar from this seat amidst thousands of Akali workers & supporters.

Akali Dal received another boost in Moga with former BJP Kisan Morcha head – Tarlochan S Gill joining the party.

Mr Gill joined SAD along with his entire team including ex BJP district head Mohan Lal & ex Circle head Iqbal Singh. Pro-farmer forces are assembling under the banner of SAD.

Sea of kesari flags at the ‘Gall Punjab Di’ road show in Dharamkot constituency. Humbled by the enthusiastic response of Akali Dal cadre as well as people at large who have now decided to throw out the corrupt, anti-farmer & anti-poor Congress govt in Punjab.

Amazed to witness goodwill Jathedar Tota Singh has earned in Dharamkot. It was a humbling experience to witness a massive road show in favour of Jathedar Ji & Akali Dal.

Was honoured to announce his candidature from Dharamkot. Jathedar ji will also be minister in SAD-BSP govt.

Deeply satisfying to the heart to see the wave of change sweeping through Punjab: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Delighted to start the day-long tour to the 7th constituency today, under ‘100 days 100 constituencies’ of ‘Gall Punjab Di’ Yatra with Gurusahab’s blessings at Gurdwara Sri Degsar Sahib, Katana Sahib.

Led a bike rally of enthusiastic youth to Mattewara grain market in Sahnewal.

Showing faith in the vision of SAD-BSP coalition for progress & development of Punjab, thousands of youth have turned up for the event. Deeply satisfying to the heart to see the wave of change sweeping through Punjab.

Cong & AAP are trying to disturb SAD’s ‘Gall Punjab Di’ campaign with protests.

Samyukt Kisan Morcha made it clear their protest is only against BJP.

Our caravan will continue. Cong govt will be responsible for any untoward incident as cops have been restrained from doing their job.

Akali Dal is committing to fulfilling the 13-point programme announced by it.

We have never taken any oaths nor got any forms filled in the past unlike Congress earlier & Aam Aadmi Party now.

Our credibility is our strength.

The next SAD-BSP govt will ensure development of Sahnewal & we are committed to establishing a hospital and girls college besides a play ground.

The constituency will continue to be led by Sharanjit Singh Dhillon who is the party’s candidate for 2022 elections.

It is my life’s mission to make Sri Amritsar Sahib a world class city: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

The rousing welcome I received in holy city has convinced me that people want to see change in Punjab.

It is my life’s mission to make Sri Amritsar Sahib a world class city.

We began this mission in our last term but Congress govt stopped all works. We’ll restart them in 2022.

The next SAD-BSP alliance govt will beautify the entire walled city on the pattern of Heritage street & also build a multi-purpose international stadium.

We will provide power at Rs 5/unit to industries.

The property tax will be reduced and illegal colonies be regularised.

Be ready to face a no confidence motion in next Vidhan Sabha session: Sukhbir Singh Badal to Punjab CM

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Amidst thousands of people at a massive rally in Bagha Purana it was a pleasure to announce the candidature of Jathedar Tirath Singh Mahla from this constituency.

Jathedar Mahla is known as an honest & grass root level leader who has always worked assiduously for Akali Dal

Akali Dal has designed novel schemes to ensure all commitments made by us can be implemented.

This includes putting up 10,000 MW solar plant which will provide free power to PSPCL for supply to farmers. We will save Rs 8,000 crore which will be used to extend promised benefits to people.

Capt Amarinder be ready to face a no confidence motion in next Vidhan Sabha session. You cheated Punjabis by holding 1 day session, simply to fulfill constitutional requirements!

If your ministers aren’t corrupt then why are you running from people’s questions?

Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee poll verdict is Sikh quom’s referendum on Akali Dal’s Panthic identity & commitment: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) poll verdict is Sikh quom’s referendum on Akali Dal’s Panthic identity & commitment.

Profoundly humbled & touched to receive ashirwad of Akal Purkh, great Guru Sahiban & Shri Guru Granth Sahib Maharaj. Deeply grateful to Sikh Sangat across the world for blessings

While I don’t have adequate words to express gratitude to Delhi’s Sikh Sangat for their love & trust in Akali Dal & to Sikhs across the world for their blessings & moral support during the polls, I wish to reiterate my total commitment to the promotion of Panthic ideals

Sikh Sangat has given a resounding reply to those hatching conspiracies to divide & weaken Khalsa Panth.

It is the clearest evidence of the Sikh quom’s approval of Akali Dal’s commitment to Panthic identity & ideals. The verdict also exposes the falsehood of SAD’s opponents.

I thank our DSGMC team led by MS Sirsa for living up to expectations of Sangat & Khalsa Panth via Sewa & Smarpan to Panthic ideas.

Sirsa’s support to COVID victims, farmers & Afghan Sikh refugees, has brought laurels to SAD. He will be nominated to DSGMC on behalf of SGPC.

Anil Joshi Ji brings with him not just massive grassroot support but also a well grounded culture of service to the people: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Hindu-Sikh ekta & Bhaicharak Sanjh got a boost in Punjab with Sr BJP leaders & ex-minister Anil Joshi joining SAD after resigning in support of farmers.

Other leaders included Sukhjit Kaur Shahi, Mohit Gupta, Kamal Chatly, Raj Gupta, RD Sharma,Harjit Bhullar, Aman Aery & Mintu Sharma.

Anil Joshi Ji’s aggressive advocacy of interests of Punjab, Punjabi & Punjabiyat has always been so remarkable that he has always struck everyone as an Akali at heart.

Today we have formalised what was always a bonding of hearts & minds.

Anil Joshi Ji brings with him not just massive grassroot support but also a well grounded culture of service to the people and an ideology rooted in pride of Punjab.

He parted ways with BJP to stand by the farmers & he is now with the most farmer friendly party in the country.

It’s remarkable that Joshi Ji is now in the party for whom farmers’ cause has always been sacred. And there is a strong symbolism in his joining Akali Dal this day, August 20, the martyrdom day of Sant Harchand Singh Ji Longowal, the apostle of Peace & communal harmony.

Today’s function is dedicated to the Kisan Sangharsh as well as supreme sacrifice made by Sant Longowal ji for communal harmony.

Akali Dal is committed to assemble all Punjabis under one umbrella & this is the reason why we have inducted senior most BJP workers into our party.

Pleased to appoint ex-minister Anil Joshi as Sr Vice President of Akali Dal.

Raj Gupta & Sukhjeet Shahi ji have been appointed as vice presidents & Mohit Gupta as party’s Gen secy/PAC member/spokesman.

Mr Joshi & Mr Gupta will be SAD-BSP candidates for Amritsar North & Sujanpur.
