Kejriwal’s Anti-Sikh Activity
Sikhs across the globe criticized AAP government’s decision of demolishing the water kiosk (Piau) near Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib in Chandni Chowk.
Gurdwara Sis Ganj is where the Martyrdom of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji took place and the memorial site of Bhai Sati Das is remembered as the site where Bhai Sahib was made shaheed. The same site is used as Piau by Sikhs to give free drinking water to anyone in need of a drink.
Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) accused the Kejriwal-led AAP government of trying to “disturb communal harmony and peace” by carrying out such an anti-Sikh activity.
Sikh body slams AAP govt
Hundreds of Sikh devotees and locals objected to the drive against encroachments but the demolition started dismantling the water kiosk near the Gurudwara on the orders of AAP MLA Alka Lamba. In is quite important to mention here that Lamba had been heading the Shahjahanabad Re-development Corporation (SRDC).
Manager of the Gurdwara, Balwant Singh Pandher slammed AAP government and Alka Lamba, saying, “We were not informed and they did not even serve us a notice. First they demolished the barriers erected near the water booth on the road, and later also demolished the water booth. We tried to stop them.”
Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee member Inderjeet Singh Monty said, “There is a lot of space for people to walk beside the water booth and many people drink water from it. I don’t understand the rationale behind demolishing it.”
Most Shockingly, AAP MLA said she ensured that everyone was taken into confidence before the demolition. Alka had cited that the court has ordered for the anti-Sikh activity of demolishing the water booth. Also, she tried to put blame on MCD headed by BJP, but in reality PWD department of AAP government had carried out the anti-encroachment drive.
BJP National Secretary R P Singh said the AAP used the redevelopment of Chandni Chowk area for its political gains.
“After the Aam Aadmi Party came to power, it tried to use this for its political expansion and got the orders of demolition passed by the court with the help of its PWD officers. Under a conspiracy, the PWD shifted the responsibility on the North Delhi Municipal Corporation so that it may look like a demolition at the religious places by the BJP-ruled municipal corporation,” said Singh.
Cruel fact is that the demolition drive was a “conspiracy” of the Arvind Kejriwal government to create a “vicious atmosphere” for BJP in Punjab ahead of Assembly elections in the state next year.
It is no more a hidden secret that AAP government has been receiving foreign funds by anti-Sikh forces who always want to target the Sikh community and this is the main reason behind Kejriwal’s anti-Sikh activity.
