[ZESTCaste] SAD’s Mix Of Hindu And Dalit Candidates Leads To Win For Seven Hindus-Dalits

SAD's Mix Of Hindu And Dalit Candidates Leads To Win For Seven Hindus-Dalits

SANGRUR – Shiromani Akali Dal is no more solely a party of Sikhs even
while a Sikh majority remains at the party's forefront.

The party cleverly used a mix of Hindu and Dalit candidates and has
given seven of the Hindu candidates a win on the SAD ticket.

Parkash Chand Garg, Prem Mittal, Sarup Chand Singla, Deep Malhotra, NK
Sharma, Pawan Kumar Teenu, Shiv Ram Kler, Avinash Chander have won the

Parkash Chand Garg has won from Sangrur, Prem Mittal from Mansa, Sarup
Chand Singla from Bathinda urban, Deep Malhotra from Faridkot, NK
Sharma from Dera Bassi, Pawan Kumar Teenu from Jalandhar and Shiv Ram
Kler, Avinash Chander from Phillaur has won from Jagraon assembly

The win of Sarup Chand Singla is being projected as the biggest win as
he was pitted against Harminder Singh Jassi, who is closely associated
with Dera Sacha Sauda head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and Dera was
presumed as a big factor in Punjab elections.

SAD secretary general Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa said "SAD is no more
associated with any particular caste or religion. By throwing away the
tag of party termed associated more with Sikhs, SAD had provided
tickets to Hindus and electorates too have put its seal of approval by
returning all of them as victorious. The change of tag has turned out
beneficial for SAD and labeling SAD not only the party of ruralites
but also of urbanites". Dhindsa said SAD believes more in universality
and this change of tag is here to stay.
