Setback to Badals as Shiromani Akali Dal out of Delhi gurdwara panel elections

SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal, who is a former deputy chief minister of Punjab, failed to give the undertaking, leading to the seizure of the party’s poll symbol.

“The SAD’s party symbol of bucket has been seized. This means it is not in the fray for the DSGMC elections,” department director Narinder Singh said a day after seeking an undertaking from the SAD that it is a religious party.

Narinder Singh, however, said that the SAD can field its candidates as independents in all 46 wards and will have to seek individual symbols from the returning officer of each ward.

Reacting to the development, SAD leader Balwinder Singh Bhunder said, “The AAP government in Delhi doesn’t want the SAD to contest the elections, that’s why it has manipulated the orders. Our candidates will contest the elections even if it is as independents.”
