HSGPC continues dharna, SAD meets Governor

Supporters and leaders of separate Gurudwara body continued to sit on a dharna at Kurukshetra for the second day on Sunday adamant to wrest control of the Gurudwaras from Amritsar-based SGPC.

A senior Haryana police officer said the situation near the site where the HSGMC supporters were on dharna was volatile, but under control.

He said that a posse of police have been deployed in the area to prevent any untoward incident. “Yesterday (Saturday), the Sikhs who were squatting on the road have moved to the side of footpaths.

However, as a precautionary measure, we have diverted the vehicular traffic on that road (near the Gurudwara). The situation is fully under control and at the moment we don’t see a build up which would lead to any clash (between Haryana SGPC and Amritsar-based SGPC supporters),” Kurukshetra’s SP Ashwin Shenvi said.

In Chandigarh, a delegation of Akali Dal (Badal) that also comprised of the SGPC President Avtar Singh Makkar, SAD Secretary General Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, SAD leaders Prem Singh Chandumajra and Daljit Singh Cheema met Haryana Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki and demanded “immediate review of the unconstitutional Act passed by the Haryana Assembly against Sikh Gurdwara Act 1925.”
