SAD should snap ties with BJP: Punjab Congress
Chandigarh: The Punjab Congress on Tuesday said SAD should take a cue from JD(U) and snap ties with BJP to protect the interests of minorities, including Sikhs.
Punjab Congress spokesman Sukhpal Singh Khaira warned Akali Dal against the "nefarious anti-minority designs" of BJP under Narendra Modi and said, "The Gujarat Chief Minister has a track record of being a communal, fascist and anti-minority leader. He is accused of engineering state-sponsored riots (Godhra massacre)...He is also accused of sponsoring fake encounters to create a scare amongst the minorities."
"Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has taken a bold decision by snapping ties with BJP to protect the interests of the minorities. Similarly, SAD should take a cue from JD(U) and part ways with the saffron party in the interest of Sikh community, which is also a minority," he said.
