– Harmander Sahib Ardasia Who Refused To Honour Badal Gets Siropao from AAP

Sikh24 Editors

Chandigarh, Panjab, 29 January 2017. Ardasia Bhai Balbir Singh, who had denied Siropao to Chief Minister Parkash Badal during his visit to Sri Darbar Sahib last year, joined the rookie Aam Aadmi Party on January 27.

AAP’s state In-charge Sanjay Singh and State convener Gurpreet Singh Waraich formally inducted him into the party. Bhai Balbir Singh was honored with a siropao by AAP, instead of its customary scarf with Arvind Kejriwal’s pictures.

Ardasi Bhai Balbir Singh was transferred to Machhiwara by SGPC authorities after he had denied ‘Siropao’ to Badal. But he had refused to abide by the transfer orders and had announced to quit service in SGPC.

Speaking with Sikh24, Ardasia Bhai Balbir Singh said that he needed an appropriate platform to raise voice against the failure of the Badal led Punjab government in unearthing serial desecration incidents in Punjab.

Accusing the current Punjab government for state-wide sacrilege incidents, he said that such incidents are not possible without connivance of ruling party.

“My sole motive was to dethrone Badal. I had earlier thought of contesting the Lambi seat against Badal as an independent candidate but after getting feedback from the Sikh sangat that it could indirectly pass on advantage to Badal, I rolled back my decision.

After much thought, I decided to join AAP, which has a clean image. Taking steps to curb sacrilege incidents and punishing the guilty is part of the AAP agenda,” he said.
