Dhindsa’s Reply To Sarna

Recommended Posts

Criticising Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee president Paramjit Singh Sarna for issuing a statement that the NDA had done little for Sikhs, secretary general of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa said today that the NDA had done a lot for Sikhs during its regime under the leadership of then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. He said perhaps Sarna had issued such a statement just to please the UPA, led by the Congress, for petty political gains.

It was the NDA which had formed the Nanawati Commission for probing the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, while the Congress had committed atrocities on Sikhs in many ways, including the 1984 riots.

Dhindsa said during the NDA regime, the Badal government had held the bicentenary celebrations of the coronation of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and at that time Vajpayee had attended the function and announced a package of Rs 1,500 crore for Punjab. The Badal government had also celebrated the tercentenary of the birth of the Khalsa and Vajpayee had given Rs 100 crore for the purpose
