Zirakpur, January 8 - The alleged step-motherly treatment meted out to the Kamboj community by the Shiromani Akali Dal(SAD) in the distribution of tickets for the Punjab elections brought severe criticism at an emergency meeting of the Chandigarh unit of the All India Kamboj Mahasabha, here today. The meeting, presided over by Mr Nanak Chand Kamboj, National President of All India Kamboj Mahasabha and Mr Amarjit Singh Thind, alleged that though the community had a population of about 30 lakh in Punjab, yet no representation has been given to it. If the community is not given representation by the political parties, it will field its own candidates in the elections, the meeting decided.
