AKALIS ON A STICKY WICKET

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - Punjab/haryana -

Apro­pos ‘Why Akali Dal is an­gry with its old­est ally, the BJP‘(HT Page 11, Be­yond the News, Fe­bru­ary 8)’, be­cause of his own long in­ning in pol­i­tics, Sukhbir Singh Badal must know that in pol­i­tics there are no per­ma­nent friends or foes. What par­ties want to en­sure are their per­ma­nent in­ter­ests. When elec­tions are near, power equa­tions in pol­i­tics change on a daily ba­sis. It is pos­si­ble that now the BJP finds it po­lit­i­cally use­ful to be­friend MP Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, who is now es­tranged with the Akali Dal, and for­mer AAP MLA HS Phoolka. The Akali Dal is now on a sticky wicket; it has no op­tion but to con­tinue to stick with the BJP.
