Anandpur Sahib, December 10

In case Prime Minister Narendra Modi fails to reddress the grievances of protesting farmers, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) will prefer not to invite him to the upcoming centenary celebrations of Nankana Sahib Shaheedi Saka and 400th Prakash Purb celebrations of ninth Sikh Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur. This was stated by newly elected SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur here today.

Jagir Kaur, who visited Takht Kesgarh Sahib for the first time after taking over as the SGPC chief, said the SGPC would not honour those who were responsible for the sad state of the farming community in the state.

She alleged the Centre's anti-people policies had hit everyone hard in the country and now, the new agricultural laws had brought the farmers on the streets. She declared that the SGPC would give a grant of Rs 1 lakh to the families of farmers who had died during the dharna in Delhi.

The SGPC president said she had issued directions to curb avoidable expenditure as the financial condition of the SGPC had taken a hit due to less footfall in gurdwaras during the past nine months because of the Covid pandemic.
