In response to a question by Mr Jaskaran Singh of Raikot during #AskCaptain Facebook live session, as to whether the recently established Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) of Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa was a Congress game plan, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh said that what happens in the Akali party “is not our job.”“They keep fighting…..history shows that they keep getting divided. There is nothing new in it. At one point of time there were seven Akali Dal’s. The Akali party is like a rubber band - it keeps expanding and contracting ,” he quipped, adding that these kind of things are normal in their party. “If Dhindsa could not stay with them after being part of SAD his entire life, what can one say,” remarked Captain Amarinder, adding that the beauty of democracy was that one can align with any party any time.While he welcomes as many political parties as want to join the political bandwagon, the Chief Minister said he was against any party whose main intent is to disturb the state’s peace.On a point raised by Mr Satish Kumar, a resident of Khanna, regarding PSEB board certificate not recognised for international studies in some countries like Australia, Captain Amarinder said he will take up the issue with the Australian Government and urge them to give due recognition to PSEB school degree for facilitating higher education degree from their country.Responding to the query of Mr. Amarpal Singh from Ludhiana regarding increasing the recruitment age limit of DSPs and Sub-Inspectors from 28 to 32 years, the Chief Minister said that the official announcement of the increase in recruitment age from 28 years to 32 for DSPs & Sub Inspectors will be made in the coming days and wished him all the best for his preparation.
