Amarinder Singh condemns AAP leader’s referendum support, asks Kejriwal to clear stand

Chandigarh | Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday condemned the statement of Aam Aadmi Party leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira’s for supporting the Referendum 2020 that aims for Punjab to secede from the Indian Union. He asked AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal to clarify his stand on Referendum 2020.

“Mr. Arvind Kejriwal I strongly condemn the statement of your LOP Sukhpal Khaira supporting Referendum 2020 that aims for Punjab to secede from the Indian Union. Please clarify your stand on this & ask your partymen to act responsibly.” he tweeted.

Earlier on Saturday, Punjab assembly leader of opposition Sukhpal Khaira tweeted, “Although I’m not a votary of 2020 referendum seeking a separate homeland for Sikhs but i don’t hesitate to say that it’s a result of a consistent policy of bias, discrimination n persecution of Sikhs ever since partition, be it attack on Darbar Sahib, genocide of Sikhs in 1984 etc!”

Referendum 2020 asks Sikhs living across the world to build a consensus in favour of Khalistan and sign a declaration for the formation of a sovereign and independent country in “India-occupied Punjab” on the basis that Sikhs are the indigenous people of Punjab and have a historical homeland, are a separate religion and have the right to self-determination.

This is being done under article 1 of charter of the United Nations. “After an unofficial referendum in 2020, we plan to ask United Nations to get it done officially,” says SFJ leader Gurpatwant Singh Pannun. The referendum also asks Sikhs to reject article 25(b)(2) of Constitution that says Sikhs are a part of Hindu religion.
