Press statement of S. Simranjit Singh Mann, President Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) dated 24 Feb. 2020, Quilla S. Harnam Singh, P.O. Talania, District Fatehgarh Sahib Pin Code 140406.
In the wake of President Donald Trump’s visit to this country and its capital Delhi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah who is incharge of Law And Order. He should not have left Delhi on a tour. This was irresponsible of the Union Home Minister, especially since violence broke out in Delhi yesterday on 23rd February 2020. Religious clashes could have been avoided had BJP-RSS and Premier Narinder Modi not legislated communal Laws like CAA, NRC, NPR and not abrogated Articles 370 and 35A in Kashmir. Our party hopes President Trump will speak of the Sikhs democratic rights and compel Mr. Modi to hold elections to the Sikh parliament the SGPC (Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandk Committee) which is functioning like a lame duck parliament for the last four years. We wish President Trump well on his visit to South Asia.
