Assembly polls 2012: Akal Takht blasts leaders going to Dera

There is trouble brewing for political leaders thronging deras for last-minute efforts to woo voters.
Akal Takht head priest Giani Gurbachan Singh said here on Sunday that he would examine how many of the Sikh political leaders had violated the Akal Takht edict barring the Sikhs from maintaining any links with Dera Sacha Sauda chief Ram Rahim Singh. In 2007 five head priests at the Akal Takht ordained that the Sikhs would not keep any links with the dera chief accused of blasphemy. The Akal Takht edict (hukamnaama) was issued after the dera chief had failed to appear before the Takht to explain his act of blasphemy.
