Dark day for democracy, says Badal

Chandigarh, October 1

Akali Dal patriarch Parkash Singh Badal today condemned the use of force on peaceful Akali workers, farmers and SAD leaders by the Chandigarh Police, saying it marked "a painful and dark day for democracy in the country's history".

The former Chief Minister warned the governments, saying: "If those in power think this would break the spirit of the peaceful Akali workers, they are sadly mistaken. They have learnt nothing from history. Punjabis have fought the worst form of repression during the Emergency and in 1984." — TNS
