The Dera Sacha Sauda will not be supporting any particular political party during the Lok Sabha elections. Dera head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan has said the sect would support candidates, who are honest and sincere and would assure to work against social evils like female foeticide, dowry and drug addiction.

He was addressing a press conference after inaugurating an agriculture fair at Nejia Khera village.

Notably, as the Lok Sabha polls are approaching the candidates of all parties have started visiting the dera headquarters. The dera head denied that they will support the Aam Aadmi Party in the Lok Sabha elections and said they have asked all candidates, who are visiting the dera, to work for public welfare.

He said the politics must be according to the religion and all religions have the same edification. “Dishonesty, corruption and betrayal are forbidden by all religions. So, politics should be practiced according to the religious edification then only it will be benefit the nation,” he said.
