Amarinder supports separate Sikh committee for Haryana


Amarinder supports separate Sikh committee for Haryana
Ludhiana: Fully supporting the Haryana government’s move to set up a separate committee for managing Sikh affairs in the State, former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Saturday said the community there had the right to decide about its future.
Early this month, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda had said that a separate body for Sikhs on the lines of SGPC would be set up in the State provided there were no legal hurdles. Later, he said a referendum would also be conducted to help Sikhs take a final call on the issue. Speaking to media persons after appearing in a local court here, Capt. Singh alleged that Akalis themselves earlier divided the Sikh community which has led to such a demand from Haryana Sikhs. PTI
