Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) supports fresh elections Resolution to the present lame duck Parliament of the Sikh’s the SGPC. Premier Modi must listen to the Sikh democratic appeal. – Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Indian Express Dated 03rd March, 2021
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that our Party supports this resolution in the Legislative Assembly as no elections to the oldest Sikh Parliament which came into being in 1925 have been held since 2011 though the statute says that they must be held after every five years. Therefore, this Sikh Parliament is a lame duck Parliament. As per the statute the Hindu Indian Union Government is bound to hold SGPC elections after five years of its term.
The elections are not being held as a favour to the Badal faction of the Akali Dal. Mr. Parkash Singh Badal and his son Mr. Sukhbir Singh have been in an political alliance with the extremist Hindu Party the BJP- RSS since the late 1970’s.
As the BJP- RSS is in the grip of the Union Government in Delhi and it is the responsibility of the Union Government to hold the SGPC elections, it is dilly dallying for the last five years and not letting the Sikh’s have free and fair elections to their democratic House which is the oldest Parliament in Asia.
As the BJP- RSS Union Government led by Premier Nerandra Modi does not want to see the Badal faction out of the Sikh Parliament it is not holding the statuary polls. In not doing its duty by democracy Premier Nerandra Modi is responsible for letting the illegal Badal faction remain in power in the SGPC House. The Badal faction has indulged its self in tremendous acts of corruption and misappropriated the religious and political funds of the SGPC. It has indulged itself in acts of corruption and religious misconduct. 328 Holy Scriptures of the Guru Granth Sahib have been sold illegally without any trace of the buyers.
Our Party charges the Union BJP- RSS Government led by Premier Nerandra Modi of criminally interfering into Sikh religious and democratic rights and denying the Sikhs their religious freedom in an endeavour to gobble up the Sikh religion into the omnivorous belly of Hinduism. The minorities, schedule castes and Adivasis or Tribal’s in THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian State) live in dread of the majoritarian Hindu Indian state.
We appeal to all democratic countries to press the Hindu state run by Premier Nerandra Modi to order the holding of free and fair elections to the Sikh Parliament the SGPC (Shriomani Gurudwara Prabhandhak Committee). All Singh Sabha’s around the world should raise their respective voice in unison seeking statuary elections to the Sikh Parliament.
Facta non Verba.
