Chandigarh, June 8, 2023 – Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal today welcomed two Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) members who had supported the candidature of Bibi Jagir Kaur for the post of President of the SGPC into the SAD.
Even as he welcomed the two SGPC members - Harpal Singh Jalla from Payal and Amrik Singh Janaitpur from Ambala to the party fold, the SAD president said another ten to fifteen SGPC members who had supported Bibi Jagir Kaur would rejoin the SAD in the coming days. He also appealed to all leaders who had left the SAD during the last few years to rejoin the mother party. “If I am at fault anywhere I apologize for the same but we must all unite to defeat the forces who want to weaken the Panth”, he asserted.
While rejoining the SAD is a homecoming for Harpal Singh Jalla, the other SGPC member who joined the SAD today - Amrik Singh Janaitpur is an independent member. Both members expressed their complete faith in the leadership of the SAD president and assured to work earnestly to strengthen the party at all levels.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Sukhbir Badal said earlier this week another SGPC member - Harpreet Singh Garcha, along with his father and former minister Jagdish Singh Garcha, had rejoined the party. “More members are in the process of rejoining the party”, he said while asserting that the SGPC members had realized that Bibi Jagir Kaur was part of a diabolic conspiracy to weaken the panth by dividing the Sikh community. All members have decided to unite against these anti-panthic forces”, he added.
