Name Rohtang tunnel after Rishi Beas and not after Vajpayee.-Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune dated 26th December 2019
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that the Rohtang tunnel should not be named after AB Vajpayee as he glorified Operation Bluestar against the stateless Sikh’s and called Indra Gandhi Durga Mata for having attacked the stateless Sikh’s with the military might of Britain, Soviet Union and its own beastly forces.
Instead the Rohtang tunnel should be named after Rishi Beas as the River Beas flows out of his dreadlocks and it is said that he had much to do with the writing of the Mahabharata. It is also a fact that the Hindus Rig-Veda was written on the banks of River Beas.
We are sorry to state that though the Hindus have got their own sovereign state, seventy two years ago in 1947, they cannot keep their holy rivers the Beas and Ganga clean. When the British left their Indian Empire in 1947 both these rivers flowed with crystal clear waters. After the Hindu came to power, now these rivers collect all the garbage, sanitary excreta, effluent’s from the leather and other polluting industry. Dead animals and humans are also thrown into these rivers. The present Union Government of the BJP – RSS led by Premier Narendra Modi and his Sancho Panza must be asked if their right wing Hindu extremist party cannot keep the Hindu holy rivers clean how will they create their Hindu Rash tar?
