It’s a win for party workers, Bhindranwale teachings, says Simranjit Singh Mann after winning Sangrur partial polls

It is a victory for the party workers and the teachings of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, Simranjit Singh Mann said after winning the Sangrur Lok Sabha by-election on Sunday. He also said he would raise the issues of “Indian army committing atrocities in Kashmir”, “murder of tribal people in Bihar and Chhattisgarh calling them Naxalites”.

Notably, Bhindranwale was the leader of the Sikh religious sect Damdami Taksal. He was in the Indian Army and was stripped of his rank and court-martialed for corruption. He joined the Khalistani movement in 1984 and was killed during Operation Blue Star launched by the army at the Golden Temple Complex. Mann, who was a candidate for Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) won the by-election by defeating party candidate Aam Aadmi in Sangrur, the territory of Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann.

Speaking to the media after his victory, he said: “It is a historic victory with which all parties including BJP, Akali Dal, Congress, AAP will be perplexed because we won. after a long time. We will oppose political parties in Parliament. Now there will be protests against us because we were made fun of that we couldn’t win. “This is a victory of our party workers and the teachings that Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale has given. The Sikh community is very upset over the death of Deep Singh Sidhu and Sidhu Moose Wala and now the Indian government will not behave in the same way as he behaves with Muslims, as their localities are questioned, as Indian army commits atrocities in Kashmir and kills Muslims daily.Tribal people of Bihar and Chhattisgarh are slaughtered calling them Naxalites. I will meet with the candidate running for president and discuss it,” Mann said.

The leader demanded the resignation of Punjab Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema and said: “He used to say we can never win, now he should resign as they have lost a lot in their region.” Mann said he wants trade with Pakistan to resume through the Attari-Wagah border so that farmers in Punjab can benefit.

“For me, the most important thing is to highlight the problems of farmers in Parliament. I want the road to Pakistan to be opened through the Wagah border so that trade can be increased and the harvests of our farmers can also be sold to Pakistan. I will raise the China issues as well because the BJP doesn’t know anything about the military. China has occupied a lot of our territory,” he said. , Mann won the by-election with 2,53,154 votes, beating the ruling party candidate to a Lok Sabha seat last held by Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann.

“This is a big victory for our party. We beat all national parties in this partial poll. My priority will be to raise the issue of the poor economic situation in Sangrur, including the condition of indebted farmers. We will work with the Punjab government,” Mann said. “I am grateful to the voters of Sangrur for electing me as your representative in parliament. I will work hard to alleviate the suffering of our farmers, farm workers, traders and all people in my constituency,” he added .

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Sukhbir Singh Badal congratulated Mann and said, “I sincerely and wholeheartedly congratulate Sardar Simranjit Singh Mann and his party on their electoral victory in the Sangrur parliamentary poll and offer them our best wishes and our cooperation. We bow to the mandate of the people in a true democratic spirit.” (ANI)
