SGPC office bearers have reportedly directed its team to start providing aid to earthquake-hit people at the local level till the ration does not reach there. SGPC president Avtar Makkar claimed that proper arrangements had been made to help the victims.

He said they had asked its panel to help the quake victims in every possible way, revealing that the buildings of the two historic Gurdwaras in Kathmandu were okay. “We will set up a relief camp in one of these Gurdwaras which also houses the Sikh Mission. A round-the-clock ‘langar’ facility will serve meals to the quake victims at the camp,” he added.

In addition, the SGPC has also set up an office at Bhai Gurdas Hall Amritsar Sahib to collect the relief material from the Sikh community. The people are donating dry ration, woolen clothes and other such supplies at the office to help the quake-hit Nepalis. The SGPC also started Sri Akhand Path Sahib’ today at Sri Darbar Sahib complex to pray for the speedy recovery of those injured in the horrible natural disaster.
