CHANDIGARH: Sukhpal Singh Khaira President Punjab Ekta Party TODAY appreciated the noble gesture of Akali Dal (Taksali) who have unilaterally withdrawn their candidate from Khadur sahib and announced their support for Bibi Paramjit Kaur Khalra the candidate of PDA.

Khaira said this would go a long way to forge 100 percent unity in the opposition ranks of Punjab to defeat the corrupt traditional parties of Congress, SAD and BJP. Khaira said he would personally call up the Akali Dal Taksali leadership to express his gratitude for supporting Bibi Khalra’s candidature based on her long standing struggle to uphold human rights in the state.

In the same breath Khaira urged the Aam Aadmi Party leadership also to learn a lesson from the Akali Dal Taksali decision and withdraw their nominee from Khadur Sahib. Khaira said by doing so atleast there would be one seat in the state where all opposition parties would be supporting Bibi Paramjit Kaur Khalra against the traditional political parties, which will further pave way for broader consensus in Punjab. Khaira said as it is the AAP candidate from Khadur Sahib Manjinder Singh Sidhu has a criminal taint as he was one of the accused for publically beating up a Dalit girl Harbinder Kaur that was caught on camera few years back in Tarantaran. The brutal beating of the Dalit girl had rocked the state and the High Court had taken suo motto cognizance against the guilty and had given the victim girl police security cover.
