New Delhi: As per the media reports both the Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee and Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee here today decided to launch a movement from May 14 from Amritsar for the reconstruction of Gurdwara Gyan Godri Sahib on the banks of the Ganga at Hari Ki Pauri in Haridwar.
This announcement was made today at a joint meeting of SGPC president Kirpal Singh Badungar and DSGMC president Manjit Singh (GK) in Delhi. Both leaders appealed to the Sikhs in India and abroad to support the movement, said the media sources.
