Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee leaders, SAD leaders, former Union minister Balwant Singh Ramoowalia and other Sikh groups and leaders participated in the event.

Addressing the “Mahapanchayat” of the Sikligar Sikhs, DSGMC president Manjit Singh GK said that if the excesses would not stop then a Sikh Mahapanchayat would be held before the Indian parliament.

Claiming that there were around 13 lakh Sikhs in MP, he said that they should take a collective decision that for whom they would vote as these were enough votes to play a decisive role in formation of a government.

He said that they would also seek appointment with MP CM Shivraj Singh Chohan and Indian Prime Minister Narendra modi to take up the issue.

The Mahapanchayat was also addressed by former union minister and now Samajwadi Party leader Balwant Singh Ramoowalia who also assured all support to Sikligar Sikhs and said that he would take up the issue with MP government and top officials.
