Khangura: Harsimrat Kaur’s Ongoing Silence on Sarpanch Slap Unpardonable – 14/12/2011

Jassi Khangura, MLA for Qila Raipur, today wrote to Harsimrat Kaur Badal, MP, asking her why, even a week later, she has made no comment on the deplorable incident at her Sangat Darshan in Gidderbaha in which a female teacher was assaulted by an Akali Sarpanch.

Khangura wrote “Shocked and disgusted as I am by the thuggish behaviour of Daula Sarpanch Balwinder Singh, I am even more so by the deafening silence from you following the incident at your rally.”

Referring to the fact that Harsimrat Kaur Badal is a self-styled advocate of women’s rights, Khangura said “This is pure hypocrisy. You claim to stand for women’s rights therefore your voice should have been the first to cry foul here. This was no distant incident with unclear facts. It happened at your own event.”

Due of the absence of an official statement from Mrs Badal, the MLA asked “Why are you unable to stand up for what is right? The respect and support you would have gained as a human being, as a woman, and as a leader would have far outweighed the disgruntlement of the Sarpanch involved.”

Khangura ended his letter saying “Alleging that it happened when you were not personally at the venue is no excuse. The function being in your name is even more reason to have condemned the incident in the strongest terms immediately. I cannot understand why you would not do so, and have not done so, and find it entirely unpardonable.”
