Sukhbir Badal, Indian politician and President of Shiromani Akali Dal was heading to Faridkot for a Rally when his convey met with a deadly accident. The cars collided with each other one after another.
Somebody had recorded the incident and the video is doing rounds on the web.
Sukhbir Singh Badal’s father Prakash Singh Badal said at his party’s rally on Sunday that someone was trying to kill him and his son. During his speech, he said that a youth has been arrested carrying a pistol right before the event. He said, “Police have told us that a person with a pistol, who wanted to kill us, has been arrested before the rally. However, shockingly, when Faridkot SSP Rajbachan Singh Sandhu was later contacted to ask about the same, he refuted the claim made by the leader.
During the speech, Prakash Singh Badal also said that neither he, nor his son is afraid of such threats. He said, “We are ready to make any sacrifice for keeping communal harmony in Punjab.”
He also pointed fingers at the Congress party saying that it encourages radical elements in Punjab. He said, “The Congress Is In Collusion with forces that put Punjab through a period of turmoil, violence and bloodshed. It is the same old nexus between the Congress and some elements rejected by the Khalsa Panth.”
Blaming the Congress, he also said, “The blasts at Jalandar Police Station are a proof of it.”
A huge crowd had gathered to be a part of the rally and to listen to Badal’s speech.
