The ruling Shiromani Akali Dal(SAD) has been hogging the limelight for all the wrong reasons these days.
After the murder of a police officerand assault on another policeman allegedly by its members recently, the party’s leaders and their supporters thrashed a local singer at a marriage party in the state.
Punjabi singer Subhash Sharma was thrashed at the wedding of a relative of senior SAD leader Balwant Singh Ramoowalia. Sharma alleged that he was beaten up by the party leaders for not performing at the function.
“There was a function of my friend who is a sitting MLA. He had organised a programme. Some people forced me to sing and when I refused I was thrashed badly. They also told me that they will see me,” Sharma alleged.
“As a man and a voter I am saying that there is rowdy rule in Punjab,” he added blaming SAD for the growing incidents of violence in the state.
They fired several rounds at two people against whom they had a grudge.
Just a couple of days before these incidents an Akali leader had allegedly killed an assistant sub-inspector in Amritsar as the latter attempted to prevent his daughter from being harassed by the leader and his friends.
