New Delhi: SAD candidate from Ward Number 9, Punjabi Bagh and DSGMC General Secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa has accused his rival SAD (Delhi) candidate Paramjit Singh Sarna of creating ruckus to sabotage his poll programme at Gurudwara Guru Singh Sabha BG-6, Paschim Vihar, on Thursday. In a press statement, Sirsa said: “Sarna group tried to intimidate our supporters and workers ahead of our scheduled programme at Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha BG-6, Paschim Vihar on Thursday evening. They were instigating and threatening the locals to cancel our programme.”
Giving out details of the reason behind the incident, Sirsa said that way back in 2003, Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha BG-6, Paschim Vihar got a loan of Rs 5 lakh from DSGMC for some construction work for the Gurdwara building. They could not pay it back due to financial constraints.
He said: “When we took charge of DSGMC, the Gurudwara BG-6 Management Committee approached us for help. Considering their request, DSGMC waived-off the remaining Rs 4.40 lakh amount of the loan.” Sirsa alleged: “The Sarna group got desperate on seeing the overwhelming response the Sikh community gave to our party. He starts playing dirty politics to avoid defeat and started hatching conspiracies to cancel the poll by committing all kinds of violations. I have complained to the DCP who has assured me of full cooperation in case there is any foul play.” Sirsa advised his rival Sarna to honor democratic values to ensure fair and free elections in the DGSMC polls.
