Chandigarh: As per media reports Shiromani Akali Dal today demanded that appropriate legal action under the anti sedition laws be taken against the AAP leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira for his open support to initiatives aimed at dismemberment of the country.
The Akali leader and former Cabinet Minister Bikram Singh Majithia and Dr Daljit SIngh Cheema were referring to the reported statements of Khaira supporting the so-called Referendum 2020 which had seeking a separate homeland for the Sikhs outside India.
Addressing to media Majithia and Dr Cheema here this afternoon, Majithia also wanted the AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal to break his silence on the support lent by his state unit leader Khaira to initiatives aimed at breaking the unity and integrity of the country.
“Unlike Khaira who wants to wear every cap from an erstwhile loyalist of the anti- Sikh Congress party, to the Leader of the Opposition, to a leader of the anti-national groups on to a late and self styled convert as seeker of justice for the Sikhs. He wants to run with the hare and hunt with the hound. People have seen through such opportunism and he stands exposed,” said Majithia and Dr Cheema.
However, the Akali leaders had a word of praise for AAP MLA HS Phoolka who, they said, at least had the courage of conviction to choose between his post as Leader of the Opposition on the one hand and seeking justice on 1984 massacre on the other.
