CHANDIGARH, July 26: Congress Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha Capt Amarinder Singh today welcomed the Akal Takhat edict calling for the cancellation of the Sunday congregation called at Amritsar by the Shiromani Akali Dal-Badal.
In a statement issued here today, Capt Amarinder said, the Akal Takhat had acted at the right moment while considering the urges and aspirations of the Sikhs across Punjab and Haryana. He said, it was a historic directive by the Akal Takhat which led to the easing of the situation that was building up across the two states and had the potential of putting the Sikhs against the Sikhs.
The former Chief Minister hoped that wisdom may also have finally dawned upon those who were aimlessly and needlessly opposing the Haryana SGPC, which was the genuine right of the Sikhs living there, for their personal reasons.
Wishing the newly constituted Haryana SGPC all the success, Capt Amarinder hoped that the adhoc committee will ensure that the elections are conducted at the earliest and it is made a true representative body of the Haryana Sikhs. He also hoped that it will come to the expectations of the people who struggled and fought for it and took the fight to the logical conclusion.
