- Around 20 winning members reached the house of Union Minister Amit Shah
- Sources claim – possible breakdown in Delhi unit of Shiromani Akali Dal
- Manjinder Singh Sirsa got members to meet Amit Shah
A game of check and match is going on in Sikh politics. On August 25, 2021, the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee was captured by the Akali Dal for the third time. Despite having a majority, the committee has not yet been formed. Meanwhile, Manjinder Singh Sirsa, the face of Akali Dal and the President of the committee, resigns from the party and joins the BJP. Now sources claim that the Delhi unit of Shiromani Akali Dal may also break. This is being gauged by the arrival of about 20 winning members at the home of the country’s Home Minister and senior BJP leader Amit Shah on Thursday.
Manjinder Singh Sirsa got the meeting done
According to sources, on Thursday, December 23, around 12:30 pm, all these members reached Amit Shah’s kothi. It is being claimed that the meeting of these members was done by Manjinder Singh Sirsa. Apart from the members, there were one or two well-known Sikh faces. It is being told that there was no agenda for the meeting of the members of the Gurdwara Committee, but in this meeting that lasted for an hour, the discussion was held only on the Gurdwara Committee elections. During this, Amit Shah also offered tea to all the members and listened to things comfortably.
A memorandum was also given regarding 84 riots.
First all the members were introduced by Sirsa, then the members gave their opinion. Sources claim that after listening to everyone in the meeting, Amit Shah clearly said that you people should form a committee, this Gurudwara committee will be formed by you only. This meeting took place inside the house. Giving information about the meeting, sources said that during this time a member has also given a memorandum regarding 84 riots to the Home Minister.
Reaching close to 20 members is a big deal
Sources say that the arrival of around 20 members is a big political development. Sirsa has also tried to show its ‘power’ through these members. With this, it is being claimed that after separating from Akali Dal, all these members can form a new party and prove their majority and form a committee. The state president of Akali Dal and the current general secretary of the committee, Harmeet Singh Kalka, is also being asked by the Sikh leaders of the BJP to leave the Akali Dal.
Kalka in no mood to leave Akali Dal
If he breaks ties with Akali, sources say that he may also be made the president of the committee. At present, Kalka is not in a mood to leave the Akali Dal. In the recent meeting, he clearly said that the Sangat of Delhi has sent him and other members to serve the Gurudwara and not to do politics. In such a situation, the question arises that if BJP supports these 20 members and makes a committee from the back gate, then what will these people answer to the sangat?
