Shiromani Akali Dal Amritsar (Mann) chief and former member of Indian Parliament S. Simranjeet Singh Mann has alleged that various Sikh groups supporting Bhai Satnam Singh Khandewala and other Panj Singhs have entered into a deal with the Aam Aadmi Party. He said that those supporting Panj Singhs were causing confusion about November 10, 2016 gathering at Talwandi Sabo.
S. Simranjit Singh Mann said that Shiromani Akali Dal Amritsar (Mann), United Akali Dal (UAD) and other Sikh groups supporting November 10 gathering at Talwandi Sabo would jointly contest upcoming Punjab state assembly elections. He maintained that majority of the Sikh groups supporting Panj Singhs’ move include those organizations who have decided not to contest the state assembly elections.
‘They are focussing on SGPC elections only as they will be supporting the Aam Aadmi Party in upcoming assembly elections’, said S. Mann further maintaining that the groups supporting Panj Singhs want to postpone the ‘Sarbat Khalsa’ in order to avoid harm to the Aam Aadmi Party, Congress party or the Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal).
