PATIALA: The resignation of Jatehdar Akal Takht (highest Sikh temporal seat of Sikhs) Gyani Joginder Singh Vedanti on Tuesday seems to be the first step to exonerate the chief of Sacha Sauda Gurmit Ram Rahim.

SAD sources reveled here on Tuesday that he has resigned from his post under pressure from SAD Supremo Parkash Singh Badal and his son Sukhbir Singh Badal.

The need of resignation of Vedanti arises as he has refused to exonerate Baba Ram rahim. SAD wanted to absolve him immediately to get the votes of his followers in Malwa area as parliament election could be held during November -December.

The intelligence sources said that both Badals have met social activist Swami Agnivesh, Jain Munni leaders and president of All India organization of Imams Mulana Jamil Ahmed Illyasi, The in charge of Ajmer Sharif Hazi Sayeed, Sheikh Asif Ai of Ajmer and asked them to mediate with Dera Sacha sauda. Both have reportedly told the religious leaders to come forward and help them. They also conveyed that SAD will create the atmosphere in Punjab to exonerate Baba.

After getting nod from Punjab chief minister and SAD Three muslim leaders Mulana Jamil Ahmed Illyasi, The in charge of Ajmer Sharif Hazi Sayeed, Sheikh Asif Ai of Ajmer met Baba in Sirsa on Saturday. Baba has reportedly given green signal to the leaders, said IB sources.

The sources said that Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal had himself told Vedanti telephonically to step down otherwise he would be sacked in the executive meeting of SGPC to be held today at Kurukeshtra.

Sources further added that Sukhbir Singh Badal himself or his wife Harsimrat Kaur may contest the elections from Bathinda parliament constituency and without Baba's Support it will be difficult to win this seat. Presently Sukhbir is representing Faridkot seat as it has declared reserve seat as per new delimitation of parliament seats.

On July 27 Baba has asked media to mediate with Sikhs or SAD the request was later turned down by SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal and asked him through media to appear before the Akal Takhat Sahib.

Regarding Dera Sacha Sauda chief's proposal to Sikh community for negotiation to solve the matter, Sukhbir Singh Badal had said that it could be decided only through the Akal Takhat as all Sikhs were bound to follow the decision of the Takhat Sahib.

Strategically Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa has touched all Sikh issues in his speech for vote against UPA government in Lok Sabha had not touched the word Sacha Sauda and Dera.
