Congress leaders on Thursday put up the national flag at the Chandigarh residence of Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, the leader of US-based separatist group ‘Sikhs For Justice’ (SFJ), who faces charges under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
Carrying tricolurs, Congress leader Gursimran Singh Mand from Ludhiana along with his supporters assembled outside Pannun’s house and raised slogans. They then put up a flag at the main gate of the house as part of the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga Abhiyan’.
On the outer wall of the house, a proclamation notice issued by an NIA court in Mohali has also been pasted.
Pannun, who has asked the youth to hoist the Khalistani flag on Independence Day, has been actively propagating and funding the secessionist Khalistan agenda abroad.
In 2019, the Centre had banned SFJ on the ground of secessionism. The group has been trying to build a campaign for secession of Punjab.
