Dera Sacha Sauda (DSS), has been king makers in Punjab since last two decades and every big political party of the state, wanted Dera chief to ask his followers to vote for their respective parties.
But, this time, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee has announced that they are not going to seek votes from the infamous dera.
This piece of information was released by party’s state head, Sunil Jakhar, via a press conference. Jakhar confirmed that PPCC shall not seek any support from this dera, as they are “a secular party”.
Meanwhile, Jakhar attacked SAD on the issue saying that the Shiromani Akali Dal, still has its doors opened for support from this Dera.
But, wait, who is taking moral high ground here? The party which itself was shored up by the same shameless institute head.
In early 2000’s, Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee, successfully got the support of Dera Sacha Sauda, when they formed the government in state.
Afterwards, for three straight elections, DSS was in the favor of the party who won two Lok Sabha elections.
If you are thinking why Shiromani Akali Dal was unable to win this election (2017) even after getting pervert Ram Rahim Singh Insa’s support, answer to this question is the involvement of ‘Dera Lovers’ (premis) various incidents of sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib.
As the general elections are upon us, again people are asking the same question like every other election, “Whom shall the Dera support?”
What changed this time is, the image of the Dera itself in the state, these elections, the blessings of rapist Ram Rahim could be proved as a curse for the parties, as Gurmeet is doing time in jail for raping and in a case of killing a journalist.
