kdsingh80 Posted August 12, 2011 Report Share Posted August 12, 2011 Mann’s key aide joins SAD Tribune News Service Chandigarh, August 12 The SAD (Amritsar) led by Simranjit Singh Mann today suffered a jolt in the Majha region with its general secretary Bhai Ram Singh joining the SAD in the presence of Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal here today. Bhai Ram Singh joined the SAD along with three SAD (Amritsar) SGPC candidates - Amarjit Singh Bhola, Manjit Singh and Manjinder Roranwala, all from Amritsar district. With Bhai Ram Singh joining the SAD, the party has the support of both former claimants to the Damdami Taksal headship. Baba Harnam Singh Dhumma, who heads the 300-year-old seminary once led by Bhindranwala, had got the better of Bhai Ram Singh during the war of succession following the death of Baba Thakur Singh in December 2004. Sources said SAD youth wing president Bikram Singh Majithia played a crucial role in bringing Bhai Ram Singh and his supporters into the SAD fold. Bhai Ram Singh said he had decided to join the SAD to be part of the development process. Badal claimed many Sikh leaders in rival factions felt disgusted with the open interference of the Congress in SGPC affairs and had come out in support of the SAD. http://www.tribuneindia.com/2011/20110813/punjab.htm#4 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
