FARIDKOT: Former Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal declared on Sunday that he was ready to sacrifice himself and his son and Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal for defending the cause of peace and communal harmony in the state.

Meanwhile, Sukhbir Badal accused radical Sikh preachers Baljit Singh Daduwal and Dhian Singh Mand of being “Congress puppets”.

Addressing the Zabar Virodhi rally in Faridkot, the senior Badal said that he had been informed by the police of a plot to assassinate him and his son.

“But we neither frighten others, nor are we going to be frightened or daunted by such reports or threats. Khalsa Panth represents  a history of sacrifices for upholding the values of peace, communal harmony and Sarbat da Bhala as enshrined in the teachings of the great Guru Sahiban.”

He said that the Congress was in collusion with forces that had put Punjab through a period of turmoil, violence and bloodshed.

Earlier, speaking on the occasion, Sukhbir Badal came down heavily on the “paid lackeys of the Congress wearing Panthic masks”, and said that the stooges of the killers of the Sikhs should hang placards with Indira Gandhi’s image around their necks.

Sukhbir said, Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh had proved to be good for nothing.
