Capt too demands probe into Sehajdhari vote controversy

Ludhiana, September 3

Not ruling out the role of the CM Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal in the recent controversy over the SGPC elections, PPCC president Capt Amarinder Singh today demanded a high-level inquiry into the whole episode to ferret out the truth.

Addressing a press conference after meeting about a dozen delegations from different sections of the society here today, Amarinder, in reply to a question that the Badals had sought a CBI inquiry, said even he wanted an independent inquiry. "I strongly believe that the Badals orchestrated the whole drama to generate sympathy and also generate momentum for the campaigning as no one was bothered about these elections in Punjab," he remarked.

Defending his stand on the voting rights of Sehajdhari Sikhs, he said the Akalis were trying to repeat the mistake they had committed during the Punjabi Suba movement.

The PPCC president categorically made it clear that the Congress had no role in the SGPC elections. "Not only in Punjab, but also at the national level the Congress does not participate in any religion related election activity," he said.

Asked about the impact of the SGPC election results on the assembly elections, the former CM replied, "The SGPC elections represent a very small segment of the electorate and these elections will have no impact on assembly polls.”
