New Delhi, India (August 12, 2014): The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC), controlled by Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal), has demanded that “Bharat Ratna” award for Shaheed Bhagat Singh and Master Tara Singh.
The demand was raised at a meeting of the DSGMC executive committee where a resolution was passed in this regard.
