The new organisational structure of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) would be announced soon, said party spokesman and local MLA Dr Daljit Singh Cheema while talking to mediapersons here on Thursday.
He said the announcement in this regard had been delayed due to preparations for Narendra Modi's Fateh Rally, which was earlier scheduled to be held on December 21. Since the rally had been postponed to February, the new set-up, including district presidents, could be announced anytime.
On the revolt by Punjab Congress leaders after the release of the list of office-bearers, Cheema said this was ample proof that Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice-president Rahul Gandhi had little respect among Congress workers after the party's defeat in the recently held assembly elections in four states.
In reply to a question regarding the opposition to the Punjab government's decision to accord nagar panchayat status to Nurpur Bedi village, Cheema termed the protests over the issue politically motivated.
He said nagar panchayat status was given to Nurpur Bedi after including Saini Majra village in it on the demand of residents and passing of resolutions by gram panchayats of these villages. The Congress is misleading the people over the issue, he alleged.
