Press Trust of India  |  Chandigarh 

The Dal leadership will seek forgiveness from the Takht, the supreme temporal seat of Sikhs, in on Saturday for any mistake committed inadvertently in the past.

The entire leadership including party stalwart Parkash Singh Badal, party's Sukhbir Singh Badal, party MLAs and other party leaders will appear before the Takht on Saturday morning, and former said Friday evening.

The party will seek forgiveness for any mistake committed inadvertently during its (SAD-BJP) ten year regime, Cheema said.

The decision to seek forgiveness was taken by the party's core committee meeting held here on Thursday.

Notably, the party had faced severe criticism over several incidents pertaining to sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib and police firing incidents in 2015 that had taken place during SAD-BJP regime.

Dal was also eye of storm over the issue of granting pardon to Dera in a 2007 blasphemy case and which was later withdrawn by Takht.

Even Taksali (old guard) leaders including Ranjit Singh Brhampura, and Sewa Singh Sekhwan, who had been expelled from the primary membership of Dal, had blamed the party's leadership for causing irreparable damage to the party.
