DSGMC postpones office-bearers’ elections to March 28


Failing to reach consensus over certain posts, the newly elected Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) on Friday postponed the elections of its office-bearers to March 28.
Sources said Manjinder Singh Sirsa, who was the general secretary in the previous term, wanted to be re-elected to the second senior-most post of the gurdwara body, but was challenged by three other contenders: Harmeet Singh Kalka, Harmanjit Singh and Amarjeet Singh Pappu.
They staked their claim, taking the plea that the post needs to be filled by a new face. As things got chaotic, Avtar Singh Hit also staked his claim for the post of president.
As the House couldn’t reach a consensus, the elections were postponed, with Manjit Singh GK unanimously elected the pro tem chairman.
