Amritsar: A delegation of Shiromani Gurdwara Prabhandak Committee (SGPC) that had gone to Jammu and Kashmir returned to Amritsar on Sept. 20 after taking stock of the flood-affected areas.
The delegation, led by its general secretary Sukhdev Singh Bhaur, will now submit a report to SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar on the basis of which they will chalk out a strategy for relief work in the coming days.
As per a release issued today, Makkar said the SGPC would continue to extend aid to the flood-affected people of Jammu and Kashmir, irrespective of their caste, colour and religion.
