Reacting to development Jagir Kaur said I am a staunch Akali worker and have always worked for the betterment of SAD.

“I have always worked for the upliftment of the SAD in the state. The party president has asked me to return back to the party fold, to which I have agreed after discussing the issue with my supporters,” she said.

A former Akali minister, Jagir Kaur, was the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) chief in 1999, 2004 and 2020 and was expelled from SAD in November 2022 for her anti-party activities. Jagir Kaur fought the SGPC elections and lost to SAD candidate and incumbent president Harjinder Singh Dhami.

She had also criticised the Badal family for taking control of the Sikh body’s affairs and denting the party image in the state with their anti-panthic stances.

Jagir Kaur said she had never left Akali Dal but it was the party that expelled her for taking up genuine concerns.
