Nanded-Maharashtra—India, 13 June 2017. President of Takht Sri Hazur Sahib Management Board Sardar Tara Singh has written a letter to the Revenue Department of Maharashtra seeking suspension of four board members including ex-SGPC president Avtar Makkar.

The other three members are SGPC members Bhupinder Singh Minhas from Mumbai and Gurdeep Singh Bhatia from Indore, along with Raghuvir Singh Virk (appointed by Chief Khalsa Diwan).

On being contacted by Sikh24, an official of Takht Sri Hazur Sahib Management Board has confirmed the development. He informed that President Tara Singh has taken this initiative keeping in view the regular absence of these members in Management Board’s meetings.

Sikh24 has learnt that an Act passed in 1956 equips the President of Takht Sri Hazur Sahib Management Board with power to recommend suspension of Board members if they remain absent continuously for three meetings.

The Management Board of Takht Sri Hazur Sahib is comprised of 17 members.

Members to be appointed by SGPC 4

Members to be appointed by Chief Khalsa Diwan 1
