Ahead of the Sikh Mahasammelan to be held at Kaithal on July 6, Jhinda said, “The Sikhs of Haryana will place their demand before Hooda once again and ask him to take steps to announce a separate SGPC.” Mere promises to make a HSGPC to seek our support for the upcoming polls will not work, he said. Finance Minister Harmohinder Singh Chatha will preside over the Mahasammelan, reporter The Tribune.

“All the government needs to do is call a session of the Assembly and pass a Bill on this issue,” he said. He said when a private Bill on the issue was moved by Naggal MLA Nirmal Singh on March 15, 2007, 80 MLAs – except nine INLD members and the Speaker — expressed solidarity with the demand for a separate Haryana SGPC.

The Chatha Committee collected affidavits from over 2.75 lakh people, all in support of a separate Sikh gurdwara body for Haryana.
