Punjab Youth Congress president Barinder Dhillon today accused the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) for saving Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in a case of personifying himself as the 10th Sikh Guru.

"If the case of 2007 was inquired properly, the desecration cases of 2015 could have been avoided," he said adding that an FIR was registered on May 20, 2007, in the Salabatpura case and additions were made on June 10, 2017, through a DDR.

Quoting from official documents, he said a sanction order was issued by the Governor of Punjab on June 26, 2007, to pursue the case against dera chief. "The then government filed two affidavits in the Punjab and Haryana High Court on September 25, 2007, and March 24, 2008, with strong evidence. But as the 2009 Lok Sabha elections approached, the SAD started weakening the case to get dera votes for Harsimrat Kaur Badal," Dhillon alleged.
