Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:
- It’s a historic day today when the Khalsa Panth responded in one voice to the call given by religious Parliament of Sikhs – SGPC, on the direction of Sri Akal Takht Sahib, for the common cause of release of Bandi Singhs (Sikh Prisoners).
- These Bandi Singhs have been languishing in jails far beyond their sentenced term. They are there not because of anything they do for personal gain but out of pure religious sentiments
- With the blessings of great Guru Sahiban, Khalsa Panth today showed complete unity in the struggle for their release.
- As a humble Sikh & mukh sevadar of Akali Dal I feel grateful to all Sikh leaders who made today’s historic Panthic Convention a reality.
