Anandpur Sahib, December 6

Keeping in view the ongoing farmers’ agitation, the Shiromani Akali Dal has postponed the three-day centenary celebrations for an indefinite period.

The programme was scheduled to be held from December 12 to 14 at Anandpur Sahib, the birthplace of Khalsa. Former Cabinet minister and party spokesman Daljit Singh Cheema, at the party’s core committee meeting today, said it had been decided that the centenary celebrations of SAD should be postponed as farmers of the state demanding their rights had been sitting on dharna in the national capital.

The SAD had started preparations for the celebrations. All senior leaders, including former CM Parkash Singh Badal, party president Sukhbir Singh Badal and SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur were supposed to be present in the town during the three-day celebrations. — TNS
