Amend Gurdwara Act: J&K Sikhs

Jammu, July 11

Sikh groups today urged Lt-Governor Girish Chandra Murmu to amend the Gurdwara Act on the pattern of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Act. They also appealed to the government to constitute ad hoc committees for the smooth functioning of gurdwara affairs.

“The tenure of the District Gurdwara Parbandhak Committiees (DGPCs) and the Gurdwara Parbandhak Board has expired. The DGPC, Jammu, is facing serious allegations regarding misappropriation of funds, mismanagement and arbitrary decisions,” Harjinder Singh Raina, a former secretary of the DGPC, Jammu, told the media. He appealed to the Lt-Governor to induct a Sikh in the Public Service Commission. — TNS
