Chandigarh: September 5, 2018: Granddaughter of late Master Tara Singh, who is currently a member of SGPC, has come out openly against Sukhbir Badal and has suggested that he should step down from his post. “Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) came into existence after innumerable sacrifices and has upheld Sikh causes for long. That a former SGPC president should reveal that the institution of Akal Takht has been manipulated by SAD president is a breach of trust. Sikhs are angry,” she said.

Kiranjot added that solution to the present crisis could be that Sukhbir Badal should step down as SAD president and “should take responsibility for undermining the panthic maryada. Let someone else lead the party out of this mess”. Importantly, so far, no Akali has blamed Sukhbir directly and asked him to resign. Till now, Jathedar Gurbachan Singh was being asked to submit a resignation instead.
