The Maharashtra government’s move to induct six members into the Takht Hazur Sahib Board at Nanded has invited the SGPC’s ire.
SGPC president Gobind Singh Longowal said it was a deliberate attempt to take control of the board.
“We will lodge a protest with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis. We will not let the Maharashtra government interfere in our religious affairs. It has amended the Administrative Act, 1956, and added six local government members,” he said.
The Takht Hazur Sahib board has 17 members, of which three are nominated from the local area. Four members from the SGPC, one each from the Maharashtra government, Madhya Pradesh and Chief Khalsa Diwan, and four from the Hazuri Khalsa Diwan are appointed to run the board’s affairs.
