Amritsar, February 18. A day after the Supreme Court allowed the new SGPC House to function, the SGPC today shot off missives to the Centre and the Sikh Gurdwara Election Commission along with the copy of the SC verdict, seeking holding of the SGPC session to elect its new office-bearers at the earliest.
SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar said, “We have written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram, Sikh Gurdwara Election Commission and the state government to ensure the SGPC session as early as possible so that the new team can be elected. We will need over a month to complete our process for clearing the annual SGPC budget before March 31”. He said any delay in calling the SGPC session now would cast its shadow on the process to pass the annual budget.
