New Delhi: The Shiromani Akali Dal (Delhi) led by Paramjit Singh Sarna today demonstrated in front of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) office, demanding suspension of the committee’s general manager Harjit Singh and its member Gurbax Singh Montu Shah. Put them behind bars on alleged charges of sexual harassment, demanded the party.
Activists of the SAD Delhi who were led by senior vice-president Bhajan Singh Walia, youth wing president Damandip Singh and DSGMC members shouted slogans against DSGMC general secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa, demanding suspension of its general manager. They also demanded that the victim be given financial aid to fight her case in the court.
Women activists of the party also participated in the demonstration. They criticised DSGMC president Manjit Singh for not taking action against the culprits.
Addressing the activists, Walia said that the Badal group is not able to manage the committee properly. Funds of gurdwara are being used for foreign tours. Sexual harassment of a woman is a very sad incident, giving bad name to the gurdwara committee.
Instead of doing religious work, the DSGMC members are moving around the leaders of the Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal), he said.
