FULL TEXT OF THE RESIGNATION OF CHARANJIT SINGH BRAR ,SECREATRY AND P.A. TO MANPREET SINGH BADAL
July 30, 2011
Respected Sardar Manpreet Singh Ji Badal
President Peoples Party Of Punjab
While writing what follows to give vent to my feelings, I feel emotionally choked and saddened by the turn of time and circumstances. Last fifty years of my family�s support to Badal Pariwar, my day and night travails for the last sixteen years to support you and my stint as your OSD elapse like a motion picture in front of my eyes and leave them moist.
It was your Charisma and aura which endeared you to my family in general and me in particular. For me it was a God sent gift to be associated with a person of lofty principles and strong convictions. An ideologue who taught me nitty gritty of politics, a diehard who taught me to do or die, a mentor par excellence, who by personal example taught me up rightness, to stand up for what is right, not to tolerate injustice and above all not to barter prestige, honour and public image for worldy gain and petty ornamentations. I cherish these ideals and will hold them closer to my chest till I die.
I savoured every moment of my association with you, the inherent support of whole Badal Pariwar and particularly fatherly love and affection of Sardar Parkash Singh Badal ji and Dass Ji till the day of the judgement, when you decided to abdicate, much against my advice and I was to take the crucial decision of supporting you or to continue enjoying the patronage of mighty Badal Sahib. Compelled by my loyality to you, my icon, I decided to follow the suit and serve my icon, an apostle, the crusader for the uplift of masses, for the awakening of Punjab.
Sadly my dreams were shattered and my beliefs stood belied when after having taken oath at Shri Harmander Sahib you announced the agenda at Amritsar but cooly decided to change/modify it at the time of registration of the party. Somehow I lumped it but pointed to you the aberration which you curtly brushed aside.
Before launching the party you used to condemn �Bhai Bhatija Wad� nepotism and favouritism and preached real democracy, giving due weightage to the efforts put in by each member, to constructive suggestions and consideration to sound advice of experienced and loyal workers of the party. But today, look around, my Master and introspect, you are surrounded, except three, by a coterie of your relatives who due to lack of experience and maturity and due to fear of annoying each other are in no position to give you fair, frank and constructive suggestions, express fearless opinion and render sound advice. Their sympathetic back scratching and sycophancy have created a stifling atmosphere in the party. I wonder where your tall promises of running the party in true democratic manner have vanished. The advice of your in-experienced, selfish, audacious, insolent and presumptuous advisers has compelled many stalwarts like Sant Ajit Singh Ji MLA, Charanjit singh channi MLA, Birdavinder Singh Ji and Manjinder Singh Kang MLA to bid farewell to the party and you have made no effort to appease them, mollify them and bring them back to the party fold. Is your coterie afraid of being elbowed out? Sir, due to the smug, snobbish, supercilious, narcissistic, �holier than thou� attitude and vainglorious habits of your advisers, stalwarts advice is not even sought. Their advice is not only ignored but they are not even called for the core committee meetings. How sad that stalwarts are not considered competent to render advice vis a vis your sycophant relatives. For the last over nine months, except three, only your relatives are called for the core committee meetings being held every Monday. Are there no competent persons in whole of Punjab? You will certainly find thousands of them even of a higher calibre than your relatives. It is not only puzzling but sad too.
Persecution of honest workers like me and many others by the Government of the day is well known. Has any step in terms of launching an agitation against the persecution or even issuing a strong statement against excesses being committed on loyal workers has been taken by you? False case of a murder was registered against me and you kept quiet. I could have pocketed that insult but the registration of false cases against my father and brother and not a word being uttered by you, no agitation being launched because you did not want it, was too much to swallow. It has shaken my faith in you. You are not prepared to protect the loyal workers. You did not utter even a word when false cases were registered against the other loyal workers of the party who stood by you from the very first day of your starting this movement. Sir, political battles are not won by memorandums but by sheer action, by leading the masses from the front.
In these circumstances I feel quite suffocated and cheated. Therefore I bow out of the party which I had nursed with lot of enthusiasm, with my sweat and blood. With a heavy heart I resign from the post of Secretary of the Peoples Party Of Punjab. May God bless you and the party. Quitting after sixteen years of my association with you is painful departure, very painful but what cannot be cured must be endured.
