AAP announces 8-day 180 km long insaaf march

Chandigarh, Nov 27 (UNI) Sukhpal Singh Khaira (AAP, Bains, Gandhi announce 8-day 180 km long 'Insaaf' march from 8th -16th December, to demand justice for Guru Granth Sahib sacrilege and to save the 'Kissani- Jawani' of Punjab.
In a press conference here on Tuesday, the rebel group of eight AAP MLA’s led by Sukhpal Khaira, LIP President, Simarjeet Bains MLA and the Punjab Manch headed by Dr Gandhi MP announced an eight day 'Insaaf' march, beginning from Talwandi Sabo that will finally culminate into a people’s show at Patiala.
The new troika of Punjab said that the 'Insaaf' march would build a 'Lok-Lehar' (people’s movement) against the unjust rule of Capt Amarinder Singh, who they said was carrying forward the corrupt and decayed legacy of the Badals.
Khaira, while elaborating on the 'Insaaf' march said that Capt Amarinder Singh like his friendly predecessors, was hell bent to deny justice on the burning issue of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib and the Behbal Kalan killings.
He said it was almost over three years now and not even a constable has been punished for killing two Sikhs in a broad daylight shoot out. He said on the contrary Capt Amarinder Singh is now shielding and protecting guilty police officers by giving them a safe passage to approach the High Court.
Khaira said the SIT now investigating the killings is beating around the bush and the recent questioning of the
Badals and actor Akshay Kumar is nothing but an eye wash, farce and a drama being enacted to delay justice.
Khaira stated that it has become abundantly clear that Capt Amarinder Singh is hand in glove with the Badal clan. Khaira demanded the immediate arrest of all culprits including the Badals and Sumedh Saini, responsible for the killings and sacrilege.
Dr Gandhi, Bains and Khaira flanked by the AAP MLA’s further elaborated that the aim of 'Insaaf' march would be to save the 'Kissani-Jawani' of the state, by highlighting the woes of farmers and youth, who were totally disillusioned by the Congress government.
They said farmers and farm labourers struggling under a colossal debt of over Rs 1 lac crore and were committing suicides in large numbers each day. They said more than 550 small and marginal farmers had committed suicides in the last 20 months of Congress regime.
They said farmers had lost all hopes from the Capt Government that has gone back on its debt waiver promise, which they said was a fraud with the farmers.They said like the farmers the youth of Punjab was completely dejected, frustrated and hopeless today.
Unemployment in Punjab has assumed dangerous propositions with lacs of youth either migrating to other countries or falling prey to the menace of drugs. The leaders said that like the debt waiver, the 'Har Ghar Naukri' scheme of Capt Amarinder Singh too has flopped creating a mass exodus of our best educated human resource to far off countries. They said unemployment coupled with drugs is leading to anarchy, chaos and multifold increase in crime in Punjab.
The organisers of 'Insaaf' march said although they had given the march a short name of justice and a crisp slogan to save 'Kissani-Jawani' but all the burning issues of Punjab including the declining education and healthcare, rampant corruption, patronisation of ‘mafia-raj’, discrimination with medium and small scale industry, denial of rights and government schemes to the weaker sections and ‘Dalits’, poisonous waters, politicisation of civil and police administration, crumbling law and order, mounting debt, injustice to
employees etc would dominate the eight day long walk.
The organisers also released a day to day programme of the 'Insaaf' march that would cover 54 big villages of Malwa region that are suicide affected, besides releasing a poster on social media. They said the march would be organised under the banner of 'Punjabi Ekta' to propagate the message of peace and brotherhood based on the strong principles of secularism as enshrined in our constitution.
Khaira said the 'Insaaf' march would finally culminate into a huge public meeting at Patiala the seat of power (Palace), where people from the state would express their anguish and resentment against the unjust, partisan and corrupt rule being perpetrated by Capt Amarinder Singh, on the lines of erstwhile Badal clan, who 'looted' the state with impunity.
The sponsors of 'Insaaf' march said that on the final day of 16th December at Patiala they would seek the mandate of people, whether they wanted a third alternative in Punjab to contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections of 2019? They said, if people gave their go ahead, they would form a new political party and forge a grand alliance with likeminded parties and individuals.
