SAD berates Wakf Board’s ‘anti-Punjabi’ decision

Chandigarh, June 17

The SAD today condemned the Punjab Wakf Board for taking an “anti-Punjabi decision” by doing away with the provision that made knowledge of the Punjabi language mandatory for recruitment to the board. It has requested CM Capt Amarinder Singh to intervene in the matter.

Daljit Singh Cheema, ex-minister, said the board had taken the decision recently to facilitate the recruitment of outsiders.

Meanwhile, Sukhbir said the Centre should take appropriate steps to defend the integrity and sovereignty of the country and ensure that the sacrifices made by its soldiers while defending the Indian territory did not go in vain.

Terming China’s attempts to claim sovereignty over the Galwan valley in Ladakh as intolerable, the SAD president said the country should be ready for a befitting action to ensure the Chinese did not dare to change the status quo on the Indo-China border again.

“The country should send a strong message to China that such transgressions will invite retaliatory action. It should be told that there is no way India will agree to parting with even one inch of its land and that it is ready to make the highest sacrifice to protect its sovereignty,” he added. — TNS
