New Delhi: India Former Akali Chief Minister of Panjab, Parkash Singh Badal, is reportedly in Pachmari Jailin Madhya Pradesh. Akali Dal President, Sant Harchand Singh Longowal and former union Agriculture Minister, Surjit Singh Barnala have also been interned there. An important Central minister has also reached there to hold behind the scene negotiations. Government has ignored S.G.P.C. President G.S. Tohra and is anxious to solve the problem through Longowal Badal combine. In the present Circumstances, no Akali leader can afford to formally enter into dialogue with the government. Such a step is likely to jeopardize his chances at the hustings. The privately accepted solution is likely to be released as a unilateral announcement by the government.
