New Delhi, November 23, 2023 (Yes Punjab News)
Giving reaction on the repeated act of Sarna brothers for misguiding the Sangat, Mr Inder Mohan Singh, President of Dashmesh Sewa Society (Regd) and former member of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) said that on the date fixed for November 20, 2023 for hearing matters of Presidents of registered Singh Sabhas of Delhi who were deprived from their rights to be Co-opted as Members DSGMC, Justice Prateek Jalan of Hon’ble Delhi High Court could not hear these petitions due to paucity of time and hence adjourned the hearing till January 4, 2024.
But due to their political gains, Sarna brothers haphazardly called a Press Conference and gave wrong statements about the said hearing like directions of the Hon’ble Court to produce videography of the Co-option meetings, consent of the President and other members of the present committee for draw of more than 2 lots and other irrelevant facts whereas neither any hearing was done by the Court on November 20, 2023 nor any such thing was mentioned in the Court Orders.
Mr Inder Mohan Singh citing the Gurdwara rules said that even the illegal consent given by any member to draw more than 2 lots cannot prevent the rights of the Singh Sabha Presidents to be co-opted as member of the DSGMC.
Mr Singh said that there is clear provisions in the Delhi Sikh Gurdwaras Act 1971 for representation of the registered Singh Sabhas of Delhi only and as such the present Presidents of the registered Singh Sabhas drawn out of 1st and 2nd lots are Co-opted. Mr Inder Mohan Singh said that it is first time in the history of the DSGMC that confusion has been created by the Director Gurdwara Election by drawing more then 2 lots, which is under consideration of the Delhi High Court.
He said that in the year 2017 also, one present President of Singh Sabha was duly Co-opted whereas the name of previous President was taken out by draw of lot. Mr Inder Mohan Singh said that the Sarna brothers have committed contempt of court by making false statements on their whim and fancies whereas no such things were mentioned in the Court orders.
