    What a joke…. this stupid illogical organization is an extension of this politician and his family. If your really a Kharkhu then why dont you go to India and do something like your idol Rajoana Terrorist suggest? Instead of domesticating the sikh lions by preaching democratic solutions? Your father Rajoana wants sikhs to pursue violent means to attain Khalistan, your obviously not a real Kharku, your just a coward using religion to win votes.
