The real Mandela of Badal’s state: Surat Singh, a relentless old man fighting for civil rights
-- While Modi lauded Prakash Singh Badal as Nelson Mandela of India and has turned himself a butt of jokes of twitter, we must know the real Mandela of Punjab. After coming India from Californa, he has been fighting relentlessly for the rights of political prisoners in Punjab and has been on hunger strike since January 15th, much like Irom Sharmila's fast. Just yesterday, he was discharged from the PGIMER Hospital n Chandigarh where he was admitted about two weeks ago and kept at the Advanced Cardiac Department forcibly.
