Amritsar, June 16, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Bibi Jagir Kaur has taken a strict action by sacking four employees and transferring the entire staff posted at Gurdwara Gangsar Sahib, Jaito, after they were found guilty of violating the service rules and bringing defamation to the management of the gurdwara.
The sacked employees include gurdwara manager Kulwinder Singh, clerk Sukhmandar Singh, sewadars (servicemen) Gurbaj Singh and Lakhbir Singh.
Taking cognizance of the complaint from the sangat (devotees), the action has been taken on the basis of the report submitted by SGPC junior vice-president Baba Buta Singh, executive committee member Navtej Singh Kauni and the SGPC’s flying squad.
SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur said that any kind of negligence in the management of gurdwaras and misconduct of the employees cannot be tolerated.
“Those employees of Gurdwara Gangsar Sahib, Jaito, who have brought defamation to the management of gurdwara by violating the religious code of conduct, have been sacked with immediate effect”, said Bibi Jagir Kaur.
SGPC president said that a case has been lodged against the accused employees at Jaito police station in Faridkot district and most of the remaining staff members have been transferred from the gurdwara.
Bibi Jagir Kaur said, “The responsibility of the people working in the management of Gurdwara is even greater than that of the general public, and accordingly, the SGPC will not tolerate any negligence and unethical activities inside the gurdwara premises.”
SGPC president reprimanded the employees working under the management of the SGPC and asked them to perform their duties within the limits of gurdwaras’ reputation and conduct and the Sikh principles. If any employee brings defamation to the Gurdwara management, a similar strict action will be taken against the concerned person, said the SGPC president.
