Barnala family revives SAD (Longowal)

barnalaChandigarh, Punjab: The Shiromani Akali Dal (Longowal) was revived today at a function held by the family of Tamil Nadu Governor Surjit Singh Barnala and its supporters to mark the 24th death anniversary of Sant Harchand Singh Longowal here.

Bibi Surjit Kaur Barnala, wife of the Governor , was made president of the new SAD (L ) while supporter of the Barnala family, Baldev Singh Mann, was made secretary-general.

Former MLA Gaganjit Singh Barnala, son of the Governor, former minister Baldev Singh Mann, president, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC), Paramjit Singh Sarna, former Delhi Chief Minister Madan Lal Khurana and president, Haryana Akali Dal, Kartar Singh Thakkar were present on the occasion.

Sarna urged Surjit Singh Barnala to come to Punjab and assume control of the SAD (L). He claimed only Barnala could remove the SAD (Badal) from political scene of the state. He said the DSGMC would contest SGPC elections in Punjab in alliance with the SAD (L) and others. Baldev Singh Mann said the party’s main aim was to get the Rajiv-Longowal Accord implemented.

The speakers held the SAD leadership responsible for the downfall of the SAD as there was no respect for workers in the SAD.

  1. Sarna cannot win one MP seat from any part in country.
    So much for his led (N)akali Dal .
    Akali dal should have a panfocus from Punjab ,India to the Global problems faced by people of Punjab , India and the world at large..

    By making or reviving new akali dal we are clearing way for permanent Raj of congress in Punjab. Why cant these so called Taksali akalis who are reviving longowal akali dal make sincere efforts in punjab for upliftment of people. Eradication of Social evils , which should be main aim of any social/political organisation. You can remember the time of Barnala Sahib , Mr badal was totally out of power and was not interfering in Barnala Government. But It was the failure of these so called moderate akalis that People of punjab have again chose Mr Badal in Drivers seat. Today need of punjab is a leader who can bring about total change in punjab, economically, Politically, and socially like Mr kairon. New Akali Dal is no solution. People like Mr. Sarna are working on behalf of congress. Congress one time tried to use Sant Bhindranwale for deviding the panth,but failed because Santji was a great man and you cannot match Santji and Sarna , because you can match Lion and Lumbri.

  3. IT is good that we have many Akali Dals which give us a choice :-

    Mann for the soldier like qualities of Punjabis
    Sarna for the economic dimension for Punjabis
    Badal, for the cultural and political aspect of Punjabis
    Barnala for unity amongst Punjabis
    Dera Sach Khand for equality amongst Punjabis
    etc etc,
    all add to the spice of POLITICAL life of Punjabis .


    Barnala and Badal both are sides of a single coin.Both are traiters and cheaters of Sikh nation.SIKHS does not need any AKALI Dal or Dals under their or their kids.SOME honest and intellegent Taksali AKali leader Should ,HAVING VISION IS THE NEED OF THE HOUR. WHO BESIDES TRUE AKALI DAL REVIVE ALL SIKH INSTITIONS AND TRADITIONS.
