New Delhi, May 24, 2023 (Yes Punjab News)
The Delhi Akali chief, Paramjit Singh Sarna, has expressed his disappointment over the use of ambiguous vocabulary in the letter from the Secretariat of Sri Akal Takht Sahib to the President of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) regarding recent appointments of teaching faculties in Sikh colleges of the national capital.

The letter, while addressing the issue of alleged appointments of non-Sikhs in the Guru Nanak Dev Khalsa College, urged the DSGMC to honor “sangat sentiments” in the recruitment process.

“It is disheartening to see the Secretariat of Sri Akal Takht Sahib resorting to ambiguous vocabulary such as ‘sangat sentiments’ instead of being crystal clear in their direction to appoint Sikh candidates on the teaching faculty,” said Sarna. “Clarity is of utmost importance when addressing such a significant matter that directly affects the Sikh community and its educational institutions.”

Sarna further highlighted that the concern over the bias against Sikh candidates in new appointments was not limited to one college but was prevalent in every college affiliated with the DSGMC. “This disappointing phenomenon has been noticed in all colleges associated with the DSGMC, leading to a sense of alienation among Sikh educators who deserve equal opportunities to serve in their own institutions,” he stated.

The Delhi Akali chief shed light on the alarming allegations of financial irregularities related to these appointments. “There are serious accusations of exorbitant amounts, ranging from 35 to 50 lakh rupees, exchanging hands for filling a single vacancy. Such practices are not only unethical but also undermine the integrity of the educational system,” Sarna asserted.

In light of these concerns, Sarna demanded an immediate release of a white paper disclosing all recent appointments of teaching faculty in colleges affiliated with the DSGMC. “The Sikh community has the right to know the truth behind these appointments, especially considering the serious allegations that have surfaced,” he emphasized.

Furthermore, Sarna called upon the Akal Takht Jathedar to issue clear instructions to the DSGMC, directing them to prioritize Sikh candidates for the positions of lecturers and professors in Sikh institutions run by the committee. “It is imperative that Sikh educators, who possess the requisite knowledge and understanding of Sikh principles, are given the opportunity to shape the minds of the next generation,” Sarna affirmed.

The Akali leader concluded by urging the DSGMC and the Sikh community at large to ensure that transparency, fairness, and meritocracy are upheld in the recruitment process of teaching faculty in Sikh educational institutions. “We must collectively strive to preserve the integrity and sanctity of our institutions by placing qualified Sikh candidates at the forefront of education,” he said.
