Amritsar, August 4

An attempt to disrupt the ongoing SGPC project for devotees’ convenience in the Golden Temple complex was thwarted by the police today.

Amidst heavy police force deployed at Dharam Singh Market on Heritage Street, an 11-member unarmed ‘jatha’ of Sikh activists, led by Sikh Sadbhawna Dal president Baldev Singh Wadala, tried to dodge the police and proceeded towards the Golden Temple complex. As they were passing through a narrow lane to reach the spot, the police intercepted them on the way. They said the SGPC was being insensitive towards Sikh ‘heritage structures’.

SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur said every possible effort was being made in consultation with Panthic scholars and historians to preserve the buildings of historical significance. — TNS
