Just 3 days from the Punjab Assembly elections, Dera Sirsa gave support to the SAD-BJP alliance for the Punjab Assembly elections to be held on February 4, 2017. The move comes after representatives from different parties approached the Dera for support.
A member of the Dera told the press:
“Sadh sangat has decided to support the SAD-BJP alliance in Punjab, and we have announced our support. We have no powers, but have done it as per the wishes of the sangat,” said Harinder Mangwal Insan, a member of 45-member state body of the Dera followers.
