SAD (A) jatha leaves for Delhi

Activists of SAD (Amritsar), led by Simranjit Singh Mann, today conducted ardas at the Akal Takht and sent a five-member jatha, led by Jaskaran Singh, to Delhi to protest the arrest of farmers.

Mann said the BJP-led Centre was discriminating against the Sikhs and lodging police cases for hoisting ‘Nishan Sahib’ on the Red Fort whereas no damage was done to the Tricolour.

“I appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to scrap FIRs registered against the Sikh protesters and early release of those who were put behind the bars,” he said.

Their party provided support to farmers who were fighting for their rights. Over 100 farmers were lodged in Tihar Jail and various lawyer panels and Sikh organisations, including the DSGMC, has been fighting legal battle for their release.

He said the jatha was proceeding towards Delhi and it would court arrest under protest. The next jatha comprising women activists would leave from Takht Damdama Sahib a week later.He also expressed resentment against the Union Home Ministry over its move to deny permission to the Sikh devotees to visit Pakistan to observe Saka Nankana Sahib centenary at Janam Asthan February 21.
