New Delhi, July 22

The election to the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC), which was earlier postponed due to second wave of Covid, will be held on August 22.

DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa on Thursday tweeted the schedule following the Delhi government's submission in the Delhi High court affirming the date.

The Directorate of Gurdwara Elections submitted to the court the poll schedule. The result will be announced on August 31.

The election had been scheduled for April 25, but was called off before the casting of votes owing to the second wave of the pandemic.

The 46 seat DSGMC is currently governed by the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) of the Badals.

Jago president and former DSGMC chief Manjit Singh GK welcomed the schedule, saying his party would contest the election alone and emerge victorious.

Shiromani Akali Dal (Delhi) leader Harvinder Singh Sarma said his group enjoyed the support of Sikhs in Delhi.

SAD president Harmeet Singh Kalka urged people to take part in the election.
