The Shiromani Akali Dal has opposed the proposed move of the ruling Congress to include the name of former Punjab Police chief KPS Gill in the obituary references in the Vidhan Sabha budget session that begins on Wednesday.

The Akali Dal will write to the Punjab Vidhan Sabha Speaker not to include the name of Gill in the list of persons who passed away after the last session of the House.

Stating this here on Tuesday, Akali Dal general secretary and spokesman Prem Singh Chandumajra said that the core committee of the party passed a formal resolution in this regard.

He said a formal letter is being sent to the Speaker on this issue.

Former chief minister Parkash Singh Badal presided over the core committee meeting.

Gill, who is credited with rooting out militancy in Punjab, died at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in New Delhi on May 26.
