Amritsar, October 22

There is a likelihood of an alliance between Ranjit Singh Brahmpura's SAD (Taksali) and Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa-led SAD (Democratic) prior to the SGPC polls.

SAD (Taksali) leaders have shown inclination towards joining 'likeminded' parties to topple traditional parties such as the Congress and SAD from the region.

During its core committee meeting here, the leaders also expressed their solidarity with the farmers over to newly enacted farm laws.

"We are open to alliance with any party for the SGPC and Assembly polls. Our joint aim is to offer a third option to the people of Punjab to choose from against the traditional SAD and Congress. The SAD-BJP split has proved to be a blessing in disguise as it has paved the way for the overdue SGPC polls with the appointment of the Gurdwara Election Commissioner," said Brahmpura.

The SAD (Taksali) asked the Gurdwara Commission to initiate preparation of ID cards of aspirants for the SGPC elections. "This will curb bogus voting," he said. Leaders of several parties were in touch with him, he said. "I am in touch with Dhindsa. Our aim is to get the SGPC free from the clutches of the Badals. It will be an alliance, not a merger," he said. —TNS
