Muktsar, Punjab: Though Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal is preparing to launch an agitation ‘morcha’ against the formation of Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (HSGMC), Akali workers in his home constituency Lambi have been making arrangements for his Sangat Darshan. The tentative schedule being informed to villagers about the Chief Minister’s visit is on July 29, 30 and 31. In Sarawan Bodla village, the SAD leadership even announced that the CM would come to their village on July 30.
Accompanied by a large number of SAD activists, the SGPC executive committee member-cum-Chairman, Punjab Agro Foodgrains Corporation, Dyal Singh Kolianwali, OSD to CM Gurcharan Singh and some senior officials of the district administration today held meetings in seven villages to prepare the lists of demands for the Sangat Darshan.
Badal had recently skipped the Budget Session of the Assembly, and had preferred to go and meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to convince them against the HSGMC. He had also announced that he would be the first to court arrest against the formation of the separate panel.
The SAD and SGPC leaders held meetings at Aspala, Sarawan Bodla, Gurusar, Burj Sidhwan, Dabwali Dhab, Shamkhera and Kolianwali. Even the villagers were astonished when the SAD leaders said they had come to listen to their problems before the CM’s scheduled Sangat Darshan.
Kolianwali said, “The CM will come very shortly to redress your problems. We have come here to make a note of your issues and present it before Badal ‘saab’.”
