Sikh Youth Slate achives landslide victory in Surrey-Delta Gurdwara elections

December 18, 2012 | By

Vancouver, Canada (December 17, 2012): In an unexpected turn of events, the Sikh Youth slate running in the elections at Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara won a resounding landslide victory against their “moderate” opponents.

The election represents a complete reversal from the period between 1997 and 2008 when the “moderate” committee of the Gurdwara was considered unassailable, racking up huge victories in elections.

In 2008, Panthic Gursikhs decided to make one more effort to unseat the “moderate” committee which had never organized an amrit sanchaar at the Gurdwara and which openly and proudly defied Akal Takht Maryada on the issue of tables and chairs in the langar hall.

Since then, the Sikh Youth slate has racked up 3 election victories (although the first one was invalidated by the courts for technical reasons), with each successive victory proving bigger than the last.

Bhai Rajinder Singh Dhaliwal is the incoming president of the Gurdwara Sahib and he along with his committee have pledged to carry on the work started by the current committee, which has placed a special emphasis on making the Gurdwara Sahib more accommodating towards youth.
