Amritsar-Not withstanding that India is a democratic country, the Dal
Khalsa has warned the Indian politicians especially corrupt ones to
learn lessons from political upheaval in Cairo.
Terming the revolt in Egypt as significant and path breaking, the
organization has called upon the international community and the
Indian government to support people’s uprising aimed to dislodge the
corrupt and authoritarian regime of Hosni Mubarak.
Expressing its support for Egyptians' desire to rid themselves of
corrupt and autocratic regime of Mubarak, the spokesman of the party
Kanwar Pal Singh took a dig at government of India for hesitating in
supporting the people’s movement in Cairo. He hailed US President
Barack Obama for calling Mubarak that a transition to representative
government must begin now. "Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh should
also take firm stance on the issue", said he.
Back home, he blamed the political class of all shades for ruining the
economy of the (India) country to satisfy their personal greed’s. The entire
political system has been so badly corrupted that there are few takers
of “clean image of Dr Manmohan Singh”.
Drawing parallels with Mubarak, he alleged that Punjab's Chief
Minister Parkash Singh Badal too have amassed fortunes of billions for
his family since he grabbed power. “The entire family of Badal has
become symbol of excess and corruption in Punjab”, said he.
