He said that his party is against Bhaniarewale and birth anniversaries of Sikh Gurus should be observed not of controversial Babas. He alleged that Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his family members are protecting people like Bhaniarewale.

He held Badal responsible for Dera Sacha Saudha row. He alleged that at the behest of Badal a false case was registered against him and his associates. He said that though Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale had declared national hero from Akal Takht but he was denigrated by a English weekly by terming ‘villain’. He said that such treatment is given to Sikhs as neither SGPC nor Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee is serious about it and both the bodies never called session to discuss serious issues and passed resolution.

On asked to comment on the Khalsa Action Committee (KAC) decided to launch a mass movement against controversial godman — Ashutosh, chief of the Divya Jagran Jyoti Sansthan (DJJS) in the Doaba region, for his alleged anti-Panthic activities from August 19, Mann said that though his party is against Ashotosh but will not support KAC. He said that his party will not follow any such organisation but other organisations can follow the programmes of his party.
