Saturday 23rd February 2019 06:34 EST

The Congress has announced to take part in the elections to the apex gurdwara body which the ruling party said has failed in its role of propagating the message of the Sikh Gurus. Party's Patti MLA Harminder Singh Gill said, “I am ready to contest the polls to free the SGPC from the control of the Akali Dal. This institution of Sikhism has been politicised because present president Gobind Singh Longowal has contested the MLA elections while disgraced Akali leaders like Sucha Singh Langah and Dyal Singh Koliianwali are at the helm of its affairs.” He said this while speaking on a resolution on bill BJP MLA Som Parkash proposed to prevent exploitation of particular section of society over growing superstition and beliefs.
