Short of funds, SAD tells core members to give Rs 1 lakh each


Short of funds, SAD tells core members to give Rs 1 lakh each

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, March 13

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) seems to be running short of funds. With elections to the Lok Sabha having been announced, the party leadership today asked all members of the core committee and district presidents to contribute Rs 1 lakh each towards the party fund.

All general secretaries, vice-presidents and political affairs committee members have been asked to contribute Rs 50,000 each, while all general council members have been asked to contribute Rs 5,000 each for the party fund.

Confirming this, party senior vice-president Daljit Singh Cheema said the party needed money to meet its expenses and for organising rallies.

Last year also, all senior leaders, MLAs and former ministers were asked to contribute Rs 5,000 each every month to run the affairs of the party.

Meanwhile, the SAD Working Committee today decided to observe “Vishvasghat Divas” on March 16 across the state to protest against the manner in which the Congress “has betrayed each and every section of society by reneging on all promises made to the people”.

Speaking on the occasion, SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal said he had visited 85 Assembly segments in the last one month and people were keen to teach a lesson to the Congress in the parliamentary elections. He highlighted how justice was given to the Sikh community by Prime Minister Narendra Modi by forming a SIT to reopen 1984 genocide cases, closed by the UPA government.

He said this request, which had been made by the SAD, had led to life imprisonment for Sajjan Kumar.

Earlier, SAD senior vice-president Daljit Singh Cheema read out resolutions which were unanimously passed by the committee.

The SAD also passed a resolution thanking Modi for according priority to the celebrations of the 550th Parkash Utsav of Guru Nanak by deciding to give the status of heritage city to Sultanpur Lodhi, besides recreating “Pind Baba Nanak Da” and holding international seminars during the course of the celebrations.
