Sukhbir slams case against members

  • Amritsar: SAD president Sukhbir Badal flayed the registration of a cross-case against SGPC members and officials who faced a violent attack in the Golden Temple complex on October 24.
  • He alleged that mischievous elements, who had been creating a ruckus in front of the SGPC office for the past month, enjoyed patronage of the Cong government.

Various orgnisations have been protesting at Longowal for the past 36 days, demanding legal action against SGPC employees allegedly involved in the disappearance of 'saroops' of Guru Granth Sahib.

The SAD (Amritsar), SAD (United) and other social organisations alleged that the SGPC president had called their members to his house, but left without meeting them. They alleged that SGPC authorities have been working under political pressure.

"We had come to the SGPC president's residence to hand over our protest letter to him. Though he had given us time to meet, he left before we reached," said Amritpal Singh Sidhu, Longowal circle president, SAD Amritsar.

Members of various organisations pasted the protest letter on a pillar outside his house and staged a dharna.

The SGPC president said he had called the protesters at 2 pm. "They got late and I left after waiting for them. They should have come on time as I had other meetings scheduled," said Longowal. — TNS
