Fatehgarh Sahib (August 10, 2011): As per media reports Punjab Human Rights Organization Chairman Justice (retd.) Ajit Singh Bains today appealed to Shiromani Akali Dal(Amritsar) president Simranjit Singh Mann to contest SGPC election from Channanwal (Barnala) instead of Bassi Pattana constituency of district Fatehgarh Sahib.
Justice Bains was in Bassi Pathana today to express his solidarity with SAD (Panch Pardani) candidate Harpal Singh Cheema, who filed his nomination papers on the seat of Bassi Pattana today. Along with Cheema, Santokh Singh Salana filed his nomination papers for reserved seat of Bassi Pattana. Mann had already filed nomination papers from Bassi Pathana constituency.
Bains accompanied by Gurtej Singh former IAS and Dal Khalsa leader Kanwar Pal Singh said in the interest of the Panth, both Mann and Cheema should not fought against each other. Making a fervent appeal to Mann, who has filed his papers on two seats, Bains said he should contest from Channanwala and withdraw from Bassi Pattana.
Commenting on Sant Samaj’s alliance with Akali Dal (Badal), Kanwar Pal Singh termed it unholy and unprincipled. “It’s clear oppurtunitism”, said he and added that Sant Samaj has never followed and implemented the Sikh religious code of conduct approved by Akal Takht and SGPC. He lambasted Badal Dal for paving the way for Sant Samaj to make inroads into the mainstream of Sikhism.
On the new appointment of Dr Gurnek Singh as Acting VC of Guru Granth Sahib World University, they expressed satisfaction and said He was hundred percent better choice than disgraced Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia.
