Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa: Badals Must Show Humility For Panth’s Betterment And Step Down From Active Politics

Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, the president of Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt) and Rajyasabha MP, has asked the Akali patriarch and former CM Parkash Singh Badal and his family to show humility for the betterment of the panth and step down from active politics.

In a statement given to press, he said that the entire Sikh community should remain united and work for the betterment of the panth and society.

“The Sikh community had already gone through such turbulent times but with united efforts, it stood out with immense courage and strength,” said Dhindsa.

After the humiliating defeat of the Badals-led Akali Dal when it came down to just three seats, questions are being raised on their leadership and leaders within the party are asking them to step down.

While asking the Akali leaders to return to the panthic agenda, Dhindsa said that coming united will not only help them to put a tough fight in such hard times but also move forward with determination towards their goals.

He said that he has always urged the panth to strengthen the Akali Dal which is the backbone of Sikhism. He has also urged the Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib to help in strengthening the community.

Dhindsa said the well-wishers of the community wish to see the panthic leaders standing united on a single stage and it becomes the utmost duty of everyone to ensure the same. Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa used to be the number two in SAD as its secretary-general but resigned in 2019 to form a separate party – Shiromani Akali Dal (Sanyukt). He contested the recent assembly polls in an alliance with the BJP and Capt Amarinder Singh’s Punjab Lok Congress, but in the AAP wave, the BJP alliance also came down to just 2 seats.
