New Delhi, India (July 19, 2014): The officials of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee and the leaders/ activists of Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) Delhi unit yesterday held a demonstration outside Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s house.
The protest demonstration was led by Manjit Singh GK, president of DSGMC.
The demonstrators were accusing Sonia Gandhi and the Congress party for adopting “divide and rule” practise to divide Sikhs by creating separate Gurdwara committee for Haryana.
