Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Act amendment could disturb peace in Punjab: Badal
Bhikhiwind (Tarn Taran): Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Saturday warned that the move to amend the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Act, 1971, could disturb hard-earned peace of the state and asked the Congress leadership "to refrain from playing with fire".
"The proposed move to amend the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Act, 1971 by Congress government in Delhi is a testimony to the fact that Congress is meddling in religious affairs of Sikhs, thereby inciting their religious passions, which can never be tolerated," Badal alleged while talking to reporters after inaugurating the Punjab Institute of Technology here.
He alleged that in the past also due to such "misdeeds" of Congress, the state had felt the brunt of terrorism due to which peace, brotherhood, harmony and progress of the state was adversely affected.
"However, Congress leaders have hardly learnt any lesson from the past and they were hurting the sentiments of Sikhs by fanning such proposals," he said.
The Chief Minister charged "the sole aim of the Congress leadership behind such tantrums (referring to the proposed amendment) is to give benefits to their ‘B’ team led by DSGMC chief Paramjeet Singh Sarna and company who were working at Congress leadership’s behest to weaken the Panth (Sikh community)".
