On Thursday, Amarinder Singh had said, “If the Congress is wiped out in Punjab, what do you think I will do? Obviously, I will accept the responsibility and resign.” Lashing out at Amarinder over poll promises, Sukhbir accused the Congress-led government of “stalling” all development work and welfare schemes.
Sukhbir Badal has said that as SAD president he wishes the Almighty may "wipe out the entire khandan (clan)" of not only those who are behind the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib but also of those who indulged in “cheap politics” over the issue.
Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal also lashed out at Congress candidate Chaudhary Santokh Singh, saying that in 1952, then Congress stalwarts like Gurbanta Singh, his late father, had greeted Baba Sahib in Jalandhar with black flags.
It all began with Harsimrat attacking Amarinder for skipping an event orgainised by Centre to mark 100 years of the massacre. “You @capt_amarinder proved your care for martyrs by boycotting national function headed by the Vice President at Jallianwala Bagh yesterday," she tweeted.
Though the party has not formally announced Harsimrat Kaur Badal's name from Bathinda seat for the May 19 Lok Sabha polls, sources in the SAD said that it was a foregone conclusion that party will retain her from the constituency.
Justice Amit Rawal on February 20 had issued a notice to Badal and Majithia in the case. However, the Court on Monday was informed that notices issued to Badal and Majithia have been returned unserved due to some lapse on part of the court staff.
Some senior leaders of the party did not taking part in the event owing to a recent spat between Makkar and HS Walia, another SAD leader who had contested 2017 election from Jalandhar Cantt as Aam Adami Paty (AAP) candidate.
