In a major embarrassment for Sukhbir Badal, people left the venue where Junior Badal came to address a function. The people also raised slogans against Sukhbir Badal while leaving the venue. The incident took place in Chhote Ghumman village in Gurdaspur district on Monday morning.
As per a report aired by News 18 TV, the occasion was the anniversary of Baba Hazara Singh Nikke Ghummana Wale.
As soon as Sukhbir Singh Badal came and was about to address the gathering, people started vacating the venue. They were apparently angry at the use of a religious function by a political leader. Not only this, the people also raised slogans against Sukhbir Singh Badal while vacating the pandal, the report said.
Within minutes, the entire pandal was empty. The development has come as a big embarrassment for Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) in general and Sukhbir Badal in particular.
Recently, there has been a spate of criticism against the SAD(B) by their own leaders like Avtar Singh Makkar and Bhai Manjit Singh. Bhai Manjit has severely criticised the party and said that the handling of the Dera Sacha Sauda affair and the Bargari sacrilege wasn’t done the way it should have happened.
Justice Ranjit Singh Commission has also indicted the then administration which was directly reporting to the government at the time when the Bargari and Behbal Kalan incident took place.
