Rajoana handed over the latter to his sister, Kamadeep Kaur, and she gave the latter to Akal Takht.
The latter said, “I have fought for my rights all through my life. I do not want to give away my principles for anyone.”
Balwant Singh Rajoana criticized all the political parties in his latter, especially the Akali Dal. He writes, “I neither trusted them (Akalis) nor believe them as they have failed to get justice from New Delhi. These leaders were mum till date and suddenly they are speaking for my clemency. All know how they have made money and what their reality is. The Akalis should give away blue turbans and instead don khaki turbans for failing to get justice from New Delhi time and again.”
Further, the Babbar Khalsa international terrorist, Balwant Singh Rajoana refused to accept any sympathy from the BJP, Capt Amarinder Singh or from late CM Beant Singhs family members. He said in his latter, “Asking for mercy from them is not even in my distant dreams.”
