Nakodar (Punjab): Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said on Friday day that Pakistan’s spy agency ISI and the opposition Congress were behind the forces which created disturbances in the state through recent incidents of sacrilege of the Guru Granth Sahib.

Badal, who is also president of the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal, made the allegation while addressing a ‘Sadbhavna Rally’ in this Punjab town, 40 km from Jalandhar city.

“The initial investigation by Punjab Police revealed that Pakistan’s ISI was behind the recent incidents (of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib). Leaders of the Congress party were also behind the ‘anti-national’ forces which tried to disturb the hard-earned peace in the state,” he said.

“We have handed over the investigation of this to the CBI. In the next 2-3 months, when the CBI report comes, you will come to know about the ISI and Congress role in these incidents,” he said.

Badal said that the anti-national forces were not only behind the incidents of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib but also challenged the authority of sacred institutions of Sikhism – the Akal Takht and the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee – and violated the sanctity of Sarbat Khalsa.

Addressing the rally, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal accused of newly-appointed Congress state president Amarinder Singh of conniving with separatist Sikh leader Simranjit Singh Mann to divide the Sikh community and create disturbance in the state.

Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday attacked the policies of the central government and said that unity in diversity is our strength, and the strength of the country will increase by uniting all.

He said “making brothers fight against each other cannot benefit the country.”

Rahul Gandhi was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the three-day National Tribal Dance Festival here in the Chhattisgarh on Friday.

He said: “Without taking everyone together, every religion, every caste, tribal, Dalit, or backward, the country’s economy cannot run. Until all the people of this country are united, until everyone’s voice is heard in the Assembly and in the Lok Sabha, nothing can be done about unemployment or about the economy.”

Rahul raised questions about the current economic situation and the relief given to a select few: “The economy is run by the peasants, labourers, the poor and the tribals. If all the money is given to 10-15 people, demonetisation is done, wrong GST is implemented, then employment cannot be created in India, economy cannot run.”

Appreciating the initiatives taken by the Chhattisgarh government, Rahul Gandhi said: “Here farmers, youth, tribals, women are being heard and are taking the state forward.”

“Together, everyone is taking this state forward. It makes a difference, violence has reduced here, the economy here is overtaking other states. This difference is visible, because nothing can be made by disintegrating, the country cannot benefit by making brothers fight each other.”
