New Delhi, May 12

Two separate Sikh political parties in New Delhi have objected to the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) accepting a donation of Rs 2 crore from actor Amitabh Bachchan for the Covid facility created at Rakab Ganj Sahib Gurdwara.

The Shiromani Akali Dal, Delhi, headed by Paramjit Singh Sarna, and the Jag Aasra Guru Ott party led by Manjit Singh GK have, in separate statements, accused Bachchan of being involved in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and said accepting money from him was wrong.

Sarna said, “Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh should sack the DSGMC chief MS Sirsa.”

Manjit Singh GK not only objected to the DSGMC taking Rs 2 crore from Bachchan, but also said, “If my party is voted to power in the DSGMC polls, I would repay the Rs 2 crore taken from Bachchan.”— TNS
