Phoolka urges Amarinder to meet Home Minister, press for early SGPC elections

New Delhi, May 20, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

Senior Supreme Court Lawyer and former AAP leader HS Phoolka has shot off a letter to Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh urging him to meet Union Home Minister and press for early elections of apex Sikh body, Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC).

Reminding Amarinder of his election speeches regarding SGPC affairs and elections, Phoolka said that the Punjab Vidhan Sabha had passed a resolution requesting the Central Government to hold SGPC elections long overdue but the matter has not been taken by the Chief Minister with the Union Home Minister.

FOLLOWING IS THE TEXT OF PHOOLKA’S LETTER

20.05.2019
To,
Capt. Amarinder Singh
Chief Minister, Punjab
Sector-I, Civil Secretariat (Punjab)
Chandigarh, 160001

SUBJECT: SGPC ELECTIONS- MEETING WITH HOME MINISTER

Sir,
Punjab Vidhan Sabha has passed a resolution on 14.02.2019, requesting the Central Government to hold SGPC elections which are due since December 2016.

You had announced in the House (Vidhan Sabha) that you would personally meet the Union Home Minister to empress upon him to appoint Chief Commissioner Gurudwara Elections at the earliest. Till today, there is no information of the meeting with the Union Home Minister. I believe that meeting has not taken place yet.

During the Lok Sabha elections, in many election rallies you had mentioned about SGPC elections. This issue of SGPC elections is very important for Punjab and this should not just remain in speeches of Election rallies. It is your duty to take it forward and ensure that Gurudwara Election Commission is constituted and elections are held at the earliest.

I request you that after the formation of new government at the Centre, kindly meet the Union Home minister at the earliest and press him for appointment of Chief Commissioner Gurudwara Elections.

Thanking You,

Yours Sincerely,
H.S. Phoolka
Senior Advocate
