On this occasion, Bibi Balwinder Kaur said that there is no hope for the Sikhs to get justice from the government. Now we have no faith in the government. If there is any harm to the Sikh youth detained in Dibrugarh jail, the government will be responsible.

She said that the administration has now come into action while several attempts were made to apprise the Deputy Commissioner of Amritsar about the situation in Dibrugarh and the youth fighting for life and death but he did not show any interest and seriousness. Due to the decision to sit on a hunger strike today, there were rumors of a quarrel with Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann by the administration. But we said that the Punjab government should announce that we have the youth of Punjab and we have to bring Punjab.

She said that he prayed for the upliftment of the youth in front of Sri Akal Takht Sahib today and started the struggle. Satguru Hargobind Patshah himself will make the faith.

She appealed to the people to support her and said that 10 in Dibrugarh and 10 prisons in Punjab. 30 total 40 detained youths are on hunger strike.

She said that NSA has been there before, but they were kept in Punjab jails, but Amritpal Singh and his colleagues were thrown thousands of miles away to demoralize them and were kept under the direct supervision of Delhi to create a terrorist atmosphere. .But with the grace of Kalgidhar Patshah, those Singhs did not bow down to the hundreds of forces stationed there. They are being watched with cameras till they go to the bathroom.

She said that until the arrested Singhs shift to Punjab and drink food and water, all our families will sit on a daily hunger strike. We have no fear of death.

She said that the youth detained in Dibrugarh jail have decided that even if they die during the hunger strike, Assam water will not be put in their mouths. So the Sangats should be strong and reach the place where the families of the arrested Singhs have started the hunger strike in large numbers so that we can take more drastic steps in the struggle.
