Youth Wing Of Shiromani Akali Dal

Youth Akali Dal is the youth wing of an Indian regional political party Shiromani Akali Dal. The Youth Akali Dal professes a secular and democratic outlook and continuously working to uplift the weaker sections of society. The party leaders have been greatly influenced by the Pride of Punjab, Sardar Parkash Singh Badal. Youth Akali Dal has always been in the forefront of all movements-be in against female foeticide, against corruption, step motherly treatment by UPA government or demanding MSP for crops on the formula devised by Scientist M.S.Swaminathan and many other issues.  It gave free cycles to handicap  in Punjab. The party also helped in rescue and rehabilitation process in Uttarkhand and Jammu and Kashmir when floods caused huge devastation. The avowed aim of the Youth Akali Dal has been to channelize enterprising nature of youth into meaningful pursuits to give back something to society. The Youth Akali Dal is the only youth organization in the country that has participated in social, environmental and cultural issues. Empowerment of women, farmers and other sections of society has been its core agenda.


It was just before the year 1966, there was a massive struggle for creation of a separate state of Punjab. Youth played a major role in demanding a separate state on linguistic basis. Haryana and Himachal Pradesh became separate states. Though youth played a vital role in the struggle for a separate state, it was not a separate entity. The Youth Akali Dal formally came into existence in 1982 when Prem Singh Chandumajra became its first president. He became General Secretary of Shiromani Akali Dal in 1992. However, it was for both Sukhbir Singh Badal and Bikram Singh Majithia to infuse life into Youth Akali Dal with their organizational acumen ahead of the Assembly elections in Punjab in year 2007 to assist Shiromani Akali Dal overthrew the then Congress government in Punjab.
