Instead of re-starting all 2100 Sewa Kendras established by SAD govt, the AAP govt is going to destroy this novel citizen centric scheme by converting them into Mohalla Clinics: Sukhbir Singh Badal

  • Instead of re-starting all 2100 Sewa Kendras established by SAD govt, the AAP govt is going to destroy this novel citizen centric scheme by converting them into Mohalla Clinics, that too when the State already has 3000 functional med sub-centers & dispensaries. Terrible plan!

  • Copying an already failed model of Delhi in Punjab will prove disastrous & it will also take away investment that is needed in other core areas of health care including the super-specialty services.

  • So I urge CM Bhagwant Mann to immediately reverse this retrograde decision.

It’s a historic day today when the Khalsa Panth responded in one voice for the common cause of release of Sikh Prisoners: Sukhbir Singh Badal

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.

It’s disturbing that versions of CM & his DGP on the critical Mohali attack don’t match: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

  • It’s disturbing that versions of CM & his DGP on the critical Mohali attack don’t match.

  • CM claims arrests; within hours DGP contradicts him.

  • Bhagwant Mann please ensure peace, expose & punish guilty.

  • But don’t make it an excuse for wild witch hunt & repression against Sikh youth.



Deeply shocked at the blast at Punjab Police’s Intelligence Bureau HQs, Mohali, exposing serious security lapses and highlighting once again the deteriorating law & order situation in Punjab. Thorough probe required to expose & punish those responsible.

Sukhbir Singh Badal – 9 May 22

I appeal to all panthic organisations to unite on a common platform to create a movement to ensure the release of Sikh prisoners: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

  • I appeal to all panthic organisations to unite on a common platform to create a movement to ensure the release of Bandi Singhs (Sikh prisoners) who have been languishing in jails even after expiry of their life sentences.

  • We may have differences, but let us shed them aside for the cause.

  • It would be great if the SGPC President takes the lead & call a meeting of all panthic orgs to devise a joint strategy to fulfill the demand of Punjabis worldwide to free the Sikh prisoners, including Bhai Rajoana and Prof Davinder Pal Singh Bhullar, on humanitarian grounds.

  • I wholeheartedly thank Sri Akal Takht Sahib jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh Ji for taking the lead in this direction by setting the tone for panthic unity on this crucial issue which concerned the sentiments of Sikhs worldwide.

  • We assure that Akali Dal will adopt a well coordinated approach in consultation with all panthic orgs & parties as well as Singh Sabhas and the Sant Samaj.

  • This may also include leading a delegation to the Prime Minister to ensure the speedy release of the Sikh prisoners.

  • It’s most unfortunate that the release of Sikh prisoners isn’t taking place despite a national commitment made by the union government in this regard on the occasion of the 550th Parkash Purb of Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji in October, 2019.

  • Bhai Rajoana isn’t being released even while the SC directed GOI to decide his mercy petition.

  • Similarly, AAP govt of Delhi is blocking the release of Prof Bhullar with the SRB delaying the matter. Arvind Kejriwal & Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann owe an explanation to the Sikh community.

Akali Dal strongly condemns defamatory utterances of some mischievous goons in Patiala against Panth Ratan Jathedar Gurcharan Singh Ji: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

  • Akali Dal strongly condemns defamatory utterances of some mischievous goons in Patiala against Panth Ratan Jathedar Gurcharan Singh Ji Tohra.

  • Jathedar Sahib was & is a symbol of brotherhood & he actively implemented SAD’s vision of peace & communal harmony as enshrined in Gurbani.

  • I strongly urge PunjabGovt to act firmly against the culprit & his accomplices and stop them from trying to spread communal poison among secular and brotherly communities.

  • Akali Dal will continue to work devotedly for peace & communal harmony in Punjab & elsewhere.

Recent incidents of violence and communal flare up in Patiala are a matter of grave concern: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

  • Recent incidents of violence and communal flare up in Patiala are a matter of grave concern.

  • These were the direct outcome of the utter administrative incompetence and reckless political opportunism, which have become the hallmarks of the present rulers in the state.

  • Let me remind CM Bhagwant Mann that the Punjab tragedy of 1980s/90s had been caused by the reckless opportunism of some non-Punjabi politicians trying to control Punjab from Delhi. You must be watchful that history does not repeat itself here.

  • Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party team must understand that a sensitive border state like Punjab cannot afford their ambitious opportunism and adventurism.

  • I appeal to all Punjabis to resist divisive ideologies and political opportunists.

Called for ratification of the Rajiv-Longowal accord by parliament so that Chandigarh could be transferred to Punjab at the earliest: Harsimrat Badal – Fmr Union Minister

Harsimrat Badal – Former Union Minister:

  • While protesting against the central move to extend central civil services rules on Chandigarh UT employees during zero hour in parliament, called for ratification of the Rajiv-Longowal accord by parliament so that Chandigarh could be transferred to Punjab at the earliest.

  • This move is to dilute Punjab’s stake over Chandigarh because there was no provision of creation of any other cadre for recruitment in Chandigarh as per the Punjab Reorganization Act, 1966 & it was decided that Punjab & Haryana would have a 60:40 share in posting of employees in the UT.

  • The application of central services rules which have been applied to Chandigarh on the pattern of other UT is another attempt to weaken Punjab’s claim to Chandigarh.

  • This is also against the Rajiv–Longowal accord & is aimed at snatching Punjab’s capital from the State.

  • The recent central decision to extend central services rules to Chandigarh employees would sound the death knell for Punjabi language in the UT.

  • The parliament should ratify the accord to safeguard the rights of Punjab & its people.

  • Chandigarh is our capital & should be transferred to Punjab.

Sukhbir Singh Badal today owned moral responsibility for the party’s defeat in Assembly polls & offered his resignation which was firmly rejected by all district presidents: Akali Dal

Akali Dal:

S. Sukhbir Singh Badal today owned moral responsibility for the party’s defeat in Assembly polls & offered his resignation which was firmly rejected by all district presidents.

A formal resolution was also passed unanimously to express complete confidence in his leadership.

Sukhbir S Badal led from the front and also inspired the entire cadre to give its best. Though results were not as per expectations, he can’t be blamed for that. People voted for change and the entire opposition was swept aside in the resultant tsunami, District presidents said.

The party has the ability to rise like a phoenix from the ashes and our president Sukhbir Singh Badal will play a lead role in this”, announced the senior leadership of Shiromani Akali Dal, after holding a detailed meeting at party head office in Chandigarh.

I request that my pensionary amount may please be used to help in education of any needy girl student/students: Parkash Singh Badal – Fmr CM Punjab

Parkash Singh Badal – Fmr CM Punjab:

I request Punjab Govt & Speaker that whatever pension accrues to me as ex MLA may please be used for the interests of the people of Punjab (Lok hitaan vaaste).

It should in no case be sent to me.

Formal request in writing being sent separately

Education, especially girls education, has always been very close to my heart.

I request that my pensionary amount may please be used to help in education of any needy girl student/students.

As you know, never in my life have I received pension as ex-MLA

It was a pleasure to meet Akali Dal leadership and workers at the party headquarters in Chandigarh today: Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal

It was a pleasure to meet Akali Dal leadership and workers at the party headquarters in Chandigarh today.

Important discussions took place regarding future activities of the party, and I am glad that the entire cadre is ready to move forward with full strength.

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal

We will continue to serve Punjabis with humility in the role they have assigned to us: Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal :

We whole-heartedly & with total humility accept the mandate given by Punjabis.

I am grateful to lakhs of Punjabis who placed their trust in us & to to SAD-BSP workers for their selfless toil.

We will continue to serve them with humility in the role they have assigned to us.

As president of Akali Dal, I congratulate Aam Aadmi Party & their leader Bhagwant Mann on their victory in Punjab polls.

I offer them my sincerest good wishes for success and I am sure they will live up to the people’s expectations.

Opinion & Exit Polls are now a scam that amounts to electoral malpractice.. : Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Opinion & Exit Polls are now a scam that amounts to electoral malpractice through bags of govt money to subvert free & fair poll.

Exit polls show an unethical collusion between Satta & TV Channels. I urge EC to step in to stop this subversion of democracy with money power.

I urge Charanjit Channi to come out of nautanki mode & attend to governance at least for the remaining few hours at his disposal.

His goat milking gimmick instead attending to people’s problems till his last minute at office sums up how Cong reduced governance to a joke in Punjab.

Shocking! Our students battle grave odds in Ukraine, but Charanjit Channi has no time away from his gimmicks to help them.

Why no officers sent to help students arriving in Ukraine️’s neighbouring countries nor travel arrangements made for those arriving on their own?

SAD-BSP will revamp education & healthcare as top priority as we look confidently to form govt. We have a vision to take Punjab into the era of world class social & material infrastructure & human resource development.

Punjabis deserve clean, senstive & visionary governance.

It was heartening to witness the positivity & enthusiasm among party leaders and workers who visited me today: Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

It was heartening to witness the positivity & enthusiasm among party leaders and workers who visited me today. Everyone sounded confident of Akali Dal BSP candidates registering a massive victory.

May Waheguru bless us all with strength and guide us in every step of LIFE.

I strongly protest the Chandigarh UT decision to replace Punjab cadre IAS officer as CITCO MD.. : Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal

I strongly protest the Chandigarh UT decision to replace Punjab cadre IAS officer as CITCO MD and to fill the post with a UT cadre officer.

What is even more shocking is that the Congress govt in Punjab did not even send Punjab officers’ names to fill the post.

Congress always conspires with Centre to surrender Punjab’s interests & later enact the drama of protest while deliberately refusing to act in time.

Very painful but Akali Dal is not going to be a mute witness to this fresh wound on Punjab’s interests.

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal

BBMB crisis is not just about headworks. It’s a much bigger crisis of how successive central govts have treated Punjab & Punjabis: Sukhbir Singh Badal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

BBMB crisis is not just about headworks. It’s a much bigger crisis of how successive central govts have treated Punjab & Punjabis.

Akali Dal has no option but to blow the bugle for an intensive fight for federalism & save our future generations from starvation.

A frighteningly grave crisis looms on the verdant landscape of Guru sahiban, saints & seers.

Akali Dal will fight this threat of Punjab turning into a desert & our children either facing starvation or forced to abandon their homes to seek survival elsewhere.

The Akali-BSP alliance is set to sweep the elections with Punjabis voting decisively in favour of their own party: Harsimrat Badal – Fmr Union Minister

The Akali-BSP alliance is set to sweep the elections with Punjabis voting decisively in favour of their own party to return Punjab to the era of development, peace & communal harmony, rejecting the parties which betrayed them, and are hand in glove with the anti-national forces.

Punjab needs a stable govt connected with the people. Punjabis feel they have been cheated in the last 5 yrs with all promises being unfulfilled, and are also perturbed by the deteriorating law & order situation, gangster raaj, widespread corruption & rise of the sand & liquor mafias.

Harsimrat Badal – Fmr Union Minister

I’ve chosen to contest elections to stop outsiders from establishing roots in Punjab: Parkash Singh Badal – Fmr CM, Punjab

Parkash Singh Badal – Former CM, Punjab :

Lambi is my home, its people are my family members. We have a cordial relationship of more than 50 years, the people have always stood with me in my good as well as bad times. For me, the progress & prosperity of Lambi is the topmost priority

Political opportunists are eager for a chance to turn Punjab into an open political mandi. 11 of 20 AAP MLAs ‘sold’ themselves to Cong, betraying the public mandate. Punjabis must not elect those who will sell their loyalties to the highest bidder

Mr Arvind Kejriwal is seeking a “mauka” from Punjabis even though he has demanded Punjab farmers be penalised for stubble burning & filing case in SC to rob Punjab of its river waters.

If he gets a “mauka”, Punjab will lose everything as Bhagwant Mann has no guts to stop him from robbing Punjab.

I’ve chosen to contest elections to stop outsiders from establishing roots in Punjab to enslave its people.

“I am here to ensure political stability in the state as peace & communal harmony are prerequisites for development and progress.”

Punjabis are gearing up to install a pro-farmer and pro-poor government of the SAD-BSP combine: Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

Gunda raj of the Congress party would end in four days, Punjabis are gearing up to install a pro-farmer and pro-poor government of the SAD-BSP combine which is committed to taking everyone along in the path of peace and prosperity.

Punjabis cannot trust the Congress party as it didn’t keep any of the promises made by Capt Amarinder in 2017. They announced a complete loan waiver to farmers, jobs to every household, Rs 2,500 unemployment allowance, and an increase in the old-age pension but delivered none.

The advent of the SAD-BSP alliance govt in Punjab will witness an increase in social welfare schemes: Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal

Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:

The advent of the SAD-BSP alliance govt in Punjab will witness an increase in social welfare schemes.

The old-age pension would be increased from Rs 1,500 to Rs 3,100 per month and the shagun benefit to brides from weaker sections would be increased to Rs 75,000.

We will restore all blue cards which were scrapped by the Congress govt, ensuring subsidized ration to weaker sections.

The women head of below poverty line families will get an allowance of Rs 2,000/month & all domestic consumers will get 400 units of free power per month.
