Amarinder should stop living in fool’s paradise: SAD



The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today asked Punjab Congress president Capt Amarinder to stop living in a fool’s paradise and day dreaming about power which had become out of his reach with Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi refusing to name him as the party’s chief ministerial candidate.

Stating that this was an insult which must have been hard to digest for a former "maharaja”, the SAD said it understood Capt Amarinder’s disturbed state of mind after this humiliation. "However he must try to maintain control over his mental faculties and not give in to hallucinatory spells which probably prompted him to say the akalis will disintegrate before the 2007 elections”, SAD general secretary Dr Daljit Singh Cheema disclosed in a statement here.

"It is time you hung up your boots”, Dr Daljit Cheema said adding a Captain who did not have the confidence of his high command could never even go into battle what to talk of winning the 2017 assembly election. He said it was pitiable that this was the second consecutive insult heaped upon Capt Amarinder recently. "Earlier the high command refused to nominate the persons recommended by him, including singer Hans Raj Hans, to the Rajya Sabha”.

Stating this was not all, Dr Cheema said the "Captain” did not have any troops to take into battle and was recently seen trying to woo people over coffee, an alien drink in Punjab. But he said the recent setbacks suffered by Amarinder were the result of his own actions. "A person who likes to surround himself with sycophants and believes in a darbari culture is bound to repel the common man”, he said adding this was the reason why the entire Congress cadre had deserted him relegating him to a status of a Captain without any troops at his command”.

The akali leader said the state of affairs of the Congress party was there for all to see. He said the recent mass exodus of senior leaders including Jagmeet Brar and Bir Devinder Singh was an indication of which way the wind is blowing. "Earlier senior leaders have left the Congress and even stood for election under the SAD symbol and won the same seats. The word disintegration fits you and not us”, the SAD leader said adding 2017 would herald the end of the Congress in Punjab.

AAP's candidate selection process, Conspiracy by Delhi Darbar: Gandhi

AAP's candidate selection process, Conspiracy by Delhi Darbar: Gandhi



Raising questions on the process adopted by APP for selecting candidates for assembly election in Punjab, Dr Dharamvira Gandhi, Member Parliament from Patiala said it is a conspiracy by Delhi Darbar and its lackeys to crush the Politico-organizational independence and play a trick on honest and hardworking volunteers of AAP.
 
In a recent press conference Aam Aadmi Party has issued statement that Party will announce its candidates for assembly election by June end. 
 
Gandhi said that the sixteen member propaganda committee has been converted into Screening Committee whose fourteen members themselves are aspirants for tickets.
 
Gandhi said, "The Thousand dollar question is what kind of justice these aspirants will hand over to the other applicants of the constituency for which they themselves are seeking tickets. Won’t they block the others applications for making to ‘Five Member Committee’ if some other applicant is more deserving than these. It is worth noting that all the five members of ‘Five Member Committee’ are also members of the ‘Screening Committee’. Again Sanjay Singh also is member of the PAC. The final decision which rests with PAC which does not have a member from Punjab goes onto show that the real power rests with Sanjay Singh and PAC (sic).”
 
"Ideally any one aspiring to fight election should not have been a member of the selection committees; or should resign before embarking on the selection process such that the selection process is not partisan” commented Dr Gandhi.
 
Dharamvira alleged that the Party has forsaken the democratic process of selection of candidates from among the volunteers and by the volunteers and hoodwinked the volunteers into accepting the centralization of all powers in one man. Democracy in the Party thus has been totally snuffed out. Dr Gandhi himself through a video on social media had proposed a model for democratic process of selection wherein volunteers have had a full say; yet the Party ignored and reneged from the basic principles of the Party which can harm its prospects in 2017.

Congress dislikes ‘Lassi with Punjabiat’: Jagmeet Brar expelled



Senior Congress Leader and former Member of Parliament Jagmeet Singh Brar was expelled from the primary membership of the Congress party on Monday.
 
Shakeel Ahmed, General Secretary and Incharge of Punjab conveyed the decision of All India Congress Party to Brar through a letter.
 
In  the expulsion letter Shakeel  Ahmad writes , " Kindly refer to my letter seeking your explanation  addressed to you dated 29th March, 2016 and your 3 replies, all dated 30th March, 2016. Subsequently even after messaging me through mobile phone "uttered not a single word today on advise of HC” (High command), you kept on tweeting and made statements in print and electronic media which was totally against the interest of the party in Punjab.”
 
The letter further states,” After considering every aspect of the issue, All India Congress Committee (AICC) has decided to expel you from the primary membership of the party with immediate effect. Please consider this as your letter of expulsion.”
 
It may be mentioned here that Jagmeet Brar has just yesterday dared the party to expel him. "If my expulsion helps the Congress to win the Assembly polls, then I am prepared for it. But the expulsion should not be on the recommendation of PPCC cheif Capt. Amarinder Singh,” he said.
 
A day earlier he has made fun of party’s ‘Coffee with Captain’ programme and announced his ‘Zira Lassi with Punjabiat’ campaign. 
 
Many Congress legislators on Sunday have demanded the expulsion of Brar for "gross indiscipline and rebellious activities that are harming the party’s interest in the state.
 
Jagmeet Brar is the second senior leader after Bir Devinder Singh who has been shown the door by the party within a span of a week’s time on ‘indiscipline’ charges.

Indira Gandhi attacked Darbar Sahib, Kejriwal attacked Sis Ganj Sahib : SAD

Indira Gandhi attacked Darbar Sahib, Kejriwal attacked Sis Ganj Sahib : SAD



The Shiromani Akali Dal lambasted AAP Convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for demolishing historic Piao Sahib at Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib in Delhi and said that Kejriwal has started working on  the lines of Indira Gandhi.
 
In a hard hitting statement released from the party head office here today, the party Secretary and Spokesman Daljit Singh Cheema said that whereas Indira Gandhi attacked Sri Darbar Sahib in 1984 and  Kejriwal has chose the historic Gurdwara Sisganj Sahib for the similar action. He said that sikh community world over  deeply hurt by this  blunder of the AAP government led by Kejriwal. He told Kejriwal that it is easy to send bulldozers mindlessly to places of heritage, historic importance and institutions of faith of all communities but it’s repercussions should also be kept in mind. 
 
Cheema reminded Kejriwal that had Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib not sacrificed his life in the Chandni chowk for the sake of freedom of religion and human rights, there would not have been any democratic government in the country. But it is shameful that the Delhi government could not bring into the notice of the Delhi High Court the actual history and heritage importance of Bhai Mati Dass memorial as well as Piao Sahib. He said that the government has miserably failed to protect these institutions of faith and is now playing politics to put the blame on court.
 
Coming down heavily on the dubious character of Kejriwal the SAD leader said that it appears that the AAP leader is playing with the sentiments of the Punjabis particularly of Sikhs and is trying to befool them with his dirty tricks. 
 
Cheema warned the AAP leader that SAD will tolerate his mischievous attempts and the party  will expose his dubious characters  in the protest rallies for which all preparations have been done. He also warned the  leader that Sikhs have a history of safeguarding their religious institutions through peaceful and democratic traditions as they have done in the past and they would not deter for the same in this case also.
