The Shiromani Akali Dal on Sunday flayed the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi over demolition of a ‘piao’ (water kiosk) at Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib.

In a statement, SAD spokesman Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said the ‘piao’ was of historical importance and the Delhi government’s action has deeply hurt the Sikh community.

He told Kejriwal that it was easy to send bulldozers mindlessly to places of heritage, historic importance and institutions of faith, but its repercussions should also be kept in mind.

“It is shameful that the Delhi government could not bring to the notice of Delhi high court the heritage value of the piao sahib,” Cheema said.

He said the Kejriwal government has miserably failed to protect the institutions of faith and was now trying to put the blame on the court.

“We have planned protest rallies and will expose Kejriwal,” added Cheema.
