Punjab Cabinet Minister and senior Congress leader Sukhjiinder Singh Randhawa has strongly criticized the statement of the Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal branding abolishing of Article 370 and 35 A as big achievements and demanded that she apologizes to the entire Punjabi community.
Randhawa further said that it was a black day for the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) whose past is replete with arguing in favour of the federal structure that the Badal ‘+ char(39) +’Bahu’+ char(39) +’ while recounting the achievements of the 100 days of the Modi Government, presented abolishing of Article 370 and 35 A in Jammu & Kashmir as shining glories. The Congress leader said that now the Punjabi community is convinced beyond doubt that Harsimrat Badal is completely ignorant about the SAD manifesto of 1967, Batala conference as well as the 1973 Anandpur Sahib resolution.
Randhawa dared Harsimrat Badal to clarify her stand on Anandpur Sahib resolution and SADs ideology favouring federal structure.
