Mohali, July 24

Former Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) MLA Ranjit Singh Talwandi, who remained associated with party patriarch Parkash Singh Badal for many years, joined the splinter Akali group floated by Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa here on Thursday.

On the occasion, he lashed out at party president Sukhbir Singh Badal for running the SAD as a corporate office. Talwandi said the party, set up in 1920, was the second oldest party in the country after the Congress but Sukhbir, who didn’t have any vision and had not made any contribution to the SAD, was running the party undemocratically like a dictator. He was a businessman and Badal had appointed him as party president without consideration.

Pertinently, Talwandi remained MLA from Raikot constituency from 1997 to 2002 and also held the post of chairman of Punjab Small Industries and Exports Corporation.

Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa said the entire state knew that the Badal family was hand-in-glove with Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh for saving the accused in the Bargari sacrilege issue.

Meanwhile, in Muktsar, a day after former Malout MLA Baldev Singh Ballamgarh joined Rajya Sabha member Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa’s party, the former’s son, Parminder Singh ‘Pasha’, a local municipal councillor, announced to continue his support to SAD (Badal).
