August 3, 2014 | By

Kurukshetra, Haryana (August 03, 2014): The leaders and supporters of Harayna Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (HSGMC) continued to sit on a “dharna” at Kurukshetra for the second day on August 03, remaining adamant to wrest control of the gurdwaras from Amritsar-based SGPC, even as a Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) delegation met the Haryana governor and demanded immediate review of the “unconstitutional” Act passed by the state assembly.

A senior Haryana police officer maintained that the situation near the site where the Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (HSGMC) supporters were sitting on a dharna was volatile, but under control.

“A group of Sikhs is still squatting near the Gurdwara Chhevin Patshahi (Kurukshetra). On Saturday, they moved to the site to take over control of the shrine. The situation is slightly volatile, but better than yesterday,” Kurukshetra’s superintendent of police, Ashwin Shenvi said.

He said that a posse of police has been deployed in the area to prevent any untoward incident.

“Yesterday, the Sikhs, who were squatting on the road, have cleared it and moved to the side of footpaths. However, as a precautionary measure, we have diverted the vehicular traffic on that road (near the gurdwara). The situation is fully under control and at the moment we don’t see a buildup which would lead to any clash (between Haryana SGPC and Amritsar-based SGPC supporters.),” he said.
