Amritsar: Leader of the Opposition HS Phoolka led AAP legislator’s delegation today submitted a memorandum to SGPC appointed Akal Takhat’s Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh to summon CM Capt Amarinder Singh and other Congress legislators for “denigrating” the turban of AAP leaders.
Phoolka along with party MLAs Pirmal Singh, Manjit Singh Bilaspur, Kulwant Singh Pandori, Jai Kishan Singh Rorhi and Amarjit Singh Sandoha, who were thrown out of the Assembly by marshals on June 22, submitted a memorandum to Akal Takht. Since the Jathedar was not available, the memorandum was handed over to his secretary Bhupinder Singh.
Phoolka said the episode was a reflection of the muzzling of democracy. He said it happened in the presence of the CM, but he did not try to prevent it. He said it was apparent that law was violated at the behest of the CM and Speaker Rana KP Singh. He said the turban of MLA Manjit Singh Bilaspur came off in the Assembly where all ruling party leaders were present.
