SGPC executive is all set to remove Nanadgarh on Jan 17 on the orders of Sukhbir: maintains Dal Khalsa

Amritsar, Punjab: Dal Khalsa has revealed that on the orders of the SAD president Sukhbir Badal, the SGPC is all set to remove Takht Damdama Sahib jathedar Gaini Balwant Singh Nanadgarh from the august post at its executive meeting scheduled for Jan 17. The organization also revealed that to oust Jathedar, a signature campaign amongst SGPC executive members was underway.

Informing the media, party spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh and former head Satnam Singh said they had definite and credible information that Sukhbir has instructed his close aides to get the signature of all SGPC executive members in advance seeking their nod for Nanadgarh’s removal. They further said the SGPC has convened its executive committee meeting on Jan 17 to comply with the orders of its political boss.

They further said Sukhbir was hell bent to oust Nandgarh to appease Nanaksar Samparda in particular and Sant Samaj in general as Nandgarh has not only opposed their move to revert Nanakshai calendar into Bikrami but also accused them in doing so at the behest of the RSS.

Like many Panthic groups, the Jathedar too has taken bold and principled stand in favour of original Nanakshahi calendar and this has irked the Sukhbir and Sant Samaj.

They said the Jathedar Akal Takht and SGPC chief had succumbed under political pressure and had failed to call spade a spade. They urged Gaini Gurbachan Singh not to take the proposed ouster of his fellow colleague lightly as “tomorrow it could be his turn”.

They cautioned that the removal of Nandgarh would kick a storm and the members of executive body of the SGPC including its president would be seen as villains.
