Less than two months after the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) surrender the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), the central govt has withdrawn the “Z-Plus” class safety duvet for the celebration’s chief Bikram Singh Majithia.
A former minister mired in controversy, Mr Majithia is noticed as a comfortable goal given the assaults at the BJP through the management of the Akali Dal, resources within the celebration mentioned. Akali Dal leader Sukhbir Singh Badal had lately criticised the centre for its remedy of minorities.
Lashing out on the NDA govt, SAD spokesperson Daljit Singh Cheema mentioned, “The SAD condemns the arbitrary, dictatorial and politically motivated determination of the BJP-led central govt to withdraw the Z-plus class safety duvet of former minister and senior Akali chief Bikram Singh Majithia.”
In a observation, Mr Cheema, additionally a senior SAD chief, alleged that Mr Majithia’s safety duvet have been withdrawn for the reason that celebration had “stood firmly with farmers” towards the centre’s farm rules and the denial of the legitimate language standing to Punjabi in Jammu and Kashmir.
He mentioned the SAD had voted towards the centre’s farm rules in parliament but even so quitting the union cupboard and the NDA over the problem.
“It is apparent that Mr Majithia is a sufferer of political vendetta. The SAD, on the other hand, may not be cowed down through such techniques and can proceed to face with farmers and Punjabis towards the central rules in addition to another factor which weakens the federal construction or is intrinsically anti-Punjab,” he mentioned.
Mr Majithia is the brother of former Union Minister and SAD’s Bathinda MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal, and brother-in-law of Sukhbir Singh Badal.
“We have already noticed how a senior Left chief and Shaurya Chakra awardee Balwinder Singh Sandhu was once murdered in Tarn Taran lately after his safety duvet was once withdrawn,” Mr Cheema mentioned.
Warning that the Union Home Ministry could be held answerable for any incident after the withdrawal of Mr Majithia’s safety duvet, the SAD chief mentioned, “This more or less motion, which is designed to browbeat warring parties, is a brand new low in Indian politics”.
He mentioned whilst the protection duvet of Mr Majithia, who has ceaselessly been focused through anti-national components, has been withdrawn, the central govt has given Y-plus class safety to movie actor Kangana Ranaut.
“Security must now not be given at the whims and fancies to those that sing the federal government’s track. It is incumbent at the Home Ministry to give an explanation for on what grounds Mr Majithia’s safety duvet has been withdrawn abruptly after the SAD stood up towards the Centre in beef up of the farming neighborhood,” he mentioned.
