ZP Poll: Akal Takht chief’s daughter-in-law in fray

Recommended Posts

..........starting to reap the benefits of giving the biggest traitor of Sikhs in recent history the 'fakkhar-e-kaum' award and also for staying silent over the inaction over Jaspal Singh's shaheedi. A blatant conflict of interest.


ZP Poll: Akal Takht chief’s daughter-in-law in fray

Muktsar, May 5
pb14.jpgThe daughter-in-law of Akal Takht chief, Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh, will contest the Zila Parishad poll on the SAD ticket from Harike Kalan in Muktsar district.

Lakhvir Kaur, 35, wife of the Jathedar’s elder son, Manjinder Singh Bittu, will file her nomination papers at the Sub-Divisinal Magistrate’s (SDM) office here tomorrow.

Talking to The Tribune, Manjinder Singh, sarpanch of Chak Baja Marar village and chief of SAD’s Muktsar circle (rural), said the Harike Kalan zone, comprising 26 villages, was reserved for women.

The Congress has yet to decide on a candidate against Lakhvir Kaur. Sources in the Congress said the party was planning to field somebody from a high-profile family to give her a tough fight.

Lakhvir Kaur said: “I belong to a simple family of Balochkera village in Lambi. My father retired as Inspector with Punjab Roadways. Though politics is not in my blood, I have strong desire to serve the people. I have learnt the basics of politics from mr husband.”

Lakhvir Kaur said she would address a gathering at a private resort near the District Administrative Complex tomorrow and thereafter file her papers.

The SAD has fielded Malout legislator Harpreet Singh’s wife Avneet Kaur from Malout village zone.

Gurcharan Singh, chairman, Market Committee, Malout, Basant Singh Kang and a large number of Akali leaders offered a siropa to Avneet Kaur and announced her candidature today.

State Congress spokesperson Sukhpal Singh Khaira today asked the Akal Takht chief, Giani Gurbachan Singh, to step down as his daughter-in-law Lakhvir Kaur was contesting zila parishad elections on the SAD symbol from Muktsar’s Harike Kalan zone. “The Jathedar has clearly associated himself with the SAD. By doing so, he has compromised his position as the Pope of the Sikhs,” he said.

He said with his son Manjinder Singh Bittu appointed SAD’s Muktsar circle (rural) president, “the Jathedar has ceased to be a neutral and impartial figure. To uphold the dignity and sanctity of his seat, he must quit immediately,” Khaira said.

Patiala: The SAD-BJP alliance on Monday announced the first list of candidates for the Zila Parishad elections. Of the total 21 seats, 10 are in the general category, five reserved for women, two for SC (women) and four for SC candidates.The alliance announced candidates for 17 seats.

Rural Development and Panchayats Minister Surjit Singh Rakhra said for the two Rajpura seats (allotted to the BJP) and the Samana and Shutrana seats, candidates would be announced shortly.

He was never made Jathedar by the Khalsa Panth, he was hand picked by Badal because he knew he would stay quiet on Panthic issues and faithfully serve the interests of Badal Dal.

His silence has been deafening and now we are seeing exactly why....his son and daughter in law have got positions in SAD while the Panthic issues are standing still.

Next time he comes abroad, instead of giving him a siropa for selling out his nation, he needs to be questioned firmly.

    • Standing up and for ur comrades in arms is also a good quality, that turns to peer pressure and cowardiceness.  But its not only police who are guilty of it. Moh attacks everyone. People will lie to protect their family, their cult, their religion and their brothers in arms.  In fact, thats what happened in panjab during kharkoo (militant) times. If you read Khalistan by cynthia mehmoud, that was the only crime she could find done by sikh seperatists. That one sikh would take bombs into crowded marketplaces to kill hindus, and none of the members of his team condemned him. She asked them if it was wrong to kill innocents, they said yes. But they wouldn't comdemn him. They said he is one of ours, a brother.  Panjabi Sikh people will be the last to support any ideological movement. Because they have suffered from ideology alot. First in 1947, they were promised a  better nation, just for sikhs. And how many innocent sikhs got butchered? Then in 1984 to 1995, while the kharkhoos and rebels enjoyed glorius shaheedis, it was the common folk who suffered dehydration, curfews, torture, army rule, becoming orphans and a loss of economy. Most sikhs at heart are secularist and scared stiff of religious ideologues who can ignite another doomed revolution and entice their children to early death.  That is why most sikh people judge movements by their effect on the common people not their ideology. It doesnt matter what equalities are promised,.what wrongs will be righted, look at the actions. So to sikhs, BLM is terrible. It comes for their  businesses and livelihood. And one cant even try to defend against the looters:  https://anncoulter.com/2020/09/23/innocent-until-proven-trump-supporterxxxx/ Thats the general panjabi thought about BLM. Heres mine: i support Black Lives Matter Too. That was the original name by the founders. I think it makes a lot more sense. Also im after the truth, but between the nbc and cbc whitewashing and fox news fearmongering, its hard to know whats true. I dont want to be lead by the mainstream media which is supporting ppl like biden, using all this unrest to paint trump bad. Its been wrong about the russian fraud, to trump impeachement to so many things. They have been calling the protest peaceful. Big games are afoot and i dont want to be a pawn. First the media was like social distancing. Shut down gurudware and churches. Then they allow and encourage ppl to attend these huge protests.which even though they included looting and burning were called peaceful. They wont condemn anything, even though many videos show black people angry cuz their kids got shot and killed, their businesses looted. One one sided narrative is being pushed and of anyone even criticizes a little bit they are canceled with shouts of racism.  So while i support BLMT, i wont let that turn me into a passive bystander. Its not only the end that matters, its also the means to get there.  Anyone can commit crimes under a movement, so be vigilant. A protest can easily be turned into a mob. And a mob is dangerous especially if it inevitably goes to loot rich places. As sikhs are rich, and have businesses and big houses, they can be a target. As the koreans were in LA riots. Nobody supported the koreans. The media and artists celebrated the rioters. But the koreans who had to defend their homes and stores with guns were all alone during the riots and the damages too. Also the rodney king riots, did they solve anything?  Will these protests? In the beginning BLM was smart. They knew doing peaceful protests werent gonna do anything. Ppl and governmwnts only pay attention when property is involved. So they were smart, they tartgeted police departments, governemnt buildings.and even big stores were ok.  And in war and big movements sometimes bystanders get hurt. I mean it was the sikhs tweeting 17 better 10,000 in support of rajoana. That the 17 bystanders killed in suicide bombing by rajoana was good because the guy who was killed wouldve killed many more sikhs. So i understand if some innocents get killed or some sikh businesses looted. What i dont like about BLM is thats its becoming cult like. The media wont report anything true about riots vs peaceful protests or anything negative, and if anyone is critical they are canceled. These are not just fox news talking points i have noticed it. Shutting down disagreements, hiding the truth is leading to propaganda and authoritarianism. That is more worrisome than racism.
