Days after the Opposition announced its five candidates for the ensuing General House election of the Chief Khalsa Diwan (CKD), Dr Inderbir Singh Nijjar’s group announced six candidates for the polls.

The election is scheduled to be held on February 18 for the Sikh educational body. Dr Nijjar, who is an AAP MLA, is its current president. These six candidates are: Dr Nijjar for the post of president, Santokh Singh Sethi and Jagjit Singh for the two positions of vice-president, Kuljit Singh Sahni for resident president and Swinder Singh Kathunangal and Ajit Singh Basra for the two posts of honorary secretary.

In his address, Dr Nijjar said that in conformity with the thoughts of Bhai Vir Singh (one of the founders), the Chief Khalsa Diwan while being dedicated to “Sikhi and Sikhya” (Sikhism and education), is paving new paths of development by adopting impartial and transparent work policies. He emphasised the commitment to upgrade educational standards to the international level and integration of education with Sikh values in CKD schools.

He said during his stint as president of the Diwan, the events commemorating 150th birth anniversary of Bhai Vir Singh, 67th Sikh Educational Conference dedicated to his 150th anniversary, construction of a state-of-the-art school at Batala, the establishment of Bhai Vir Singh Literary Study Centre, introduction of his novel Sundari in CKD schools, placing Bhai Vir Singh’s picture in the principal’s office of every CKD school, re-publishing the Punjabi Patra Nirguniyara started by Bhai Sahib and other commemorative activities were successfully conducted.
