Harsimrat Badal’s Gidha at Attari Border

Union Minister for Food Processing Harsimrat Kaur Badal today tied rakhis to five Border Security Force (BSF) personnel deployed at Attari border.
Accompanied by several girls from both colleges and schools, Badal tied rakhis and distributed sweets to the officers and jawans of the force. The minister also sang the song ‘Mere desh ki dharti’ and danced with children and women BSF personnel.
The ceremony took place near the border gates of India and Pakistan here.
In her message to the jawans, Badal said that “the prayers of millions of sisters are with the brave jawans of the Indian forces”. She also said that Pakistan’s attempt to fish in troubled waters would not succeed.
Badal’s idea of tying rakhis comes at a time when the Shiromani Akali Dal has accused the BSF of conspiracy in the Pathankot attack. The SAD government questioned how could the six Pakistani-based jihadists enter the Air Force base despite the presence of security personnel.
Badal said, “Unfortunately, people see a political motive in everything. Our protest was not against the BSF but anti-social elements”.
