PATNA, Bihar, India—Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) suffered a major setback on November 21 when the Patna High Court once again handed over the control of Takht Sri Patna Sahib to Harvinder Singh Sarna led Management committee sidelining the former SGPC President Avtar Singh Makkar. Earlier, a session court of Patna had quashed the Sarna led management committee on November 7 while handing over the control to Avtar Singh Makkar.
Disposing off the verdict of Patna’s session court, the Patna High Court validated the election of Harvinder Singh Sarna led Takht Sri Patna Sahib Management Committee held on September 3 this year.
Welcoming the High Court’s verdict, Harvinder Singh Sarna said that the Court has delivered justice by reinstating his Management Committee. Claiming of a wave of happiness among common Sikh masses after High Court’s verdict, Sarna said that he will go to pay obeisance at Takht Sri Patna Sahib on November 22. He added that the birth anniversary of tenth Sikh master Guru Gobind Singh Ji will be celebrated at Takht Sri Patna Sahib as per pre-scheduled program.Sikh24 Editors can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
