Road show at Kakra village in Sangrur constituency: Bhagwant Mann

BHAGWANT MANN – CM, Punjab

We hope Punjabis will vote affirmatively to secure the release of all Bandi Singhs & end their suffering: Sukhbir Singh Badal in Sangrur bypoll campaigning

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Shiromani Akali Dal is contesting Sangrur Lok Sabha by-poll on the sole agenda of securing the release of Sikh detenues (Bandi Singhs) in league with all panthic organisations and if the Centre acceded to this demand we are ready to withdraw from the fray even at this stage.

We chose to focus on the inhuman treatment being meted out to Bandi Singhs by fielding Kamaldeep Kaur Rajoana, a member from Bandi Singh families.

We hope Punjabis will vote affirmatively to secure the release of all Bandi Singhs & end their suffering.

People are angry with CM Bhagwant Mann for betraying their trust. He made a mockery of the CM chair by hanging from Arvind Kejriwal’s car.

Bhagwant is on Kejriwal’s payroll. Punjabis can never accept a CM who is playing second fiddle to someone who is not even a full-fledged CM.

No matter how stressed we are, a few minutes of meditation relaxes us, increases our productivity. Therefore, we do not have to take yoga as extra work. We have to know yoga, we have to live yoga.

Yoga is no longer just a part of life, but it is now a way of life.
