Sikh Youth of Punjab, a youth organization associated with the Dal Khalsa, has been campaigning for past few days in support of Amritsar shut-down call.

Activists of ‘Jatha Neeliyan Faujan’, led by its chief Harjinder Singh, also interacted with masses inside the Golden Temple premises, while members of the Sikh Youth of Punjab (SYP) led by Paramjit Singh roamed various localities urging the people to keep their business as well as educational institutions closed on June 6.

Kanwar Pal Singh, however, said medical stores would be allowed to remain open and added that the bandh would be peaceful and road and rail traffic will not be disrupted.

In a statement sent to the Sikh Siyasat News via email, the Dal Khalsa said that the shutdown call had the support of Damdami Taksal, the Akand Kirtani Jatha, United Akali Dal and Akali Dal Panch Pardani.
