Political parties take advantage of days of religious and historical importance for political benefits. This time it was the Shaheedi Jor Mela which was taken over by political speeches from various parties.
Slamming Ruling party of Punjab Akali Dal and Congress, the AAP leadership, led by Lok Sabha member Bhagwant Mann and Punjab unit leader S.S. Chhotepur, said that the Akali Dal and Congress were involved in friendly political fights and had encouraged corruption in the state.
The Shiromani Akali Dal-Amritsar leadership, including president Simranjit Singh Mann, blamed the Akali Dal government for not being able to control recent incidents of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib and firing on those protesting against these incidents.
