Demands clarification on actual number of Sikhs in the List
New Delhi / 20 August 2016
The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) today welcomed the decision of Government of India to remove 225 names from the black list. DSGMC also demanded for making the list public.
DSGMC President Manjit Singh G.K. thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal on behalf of entire Sikh Panth.
G.K. elaborated on his vehement efforts of getting democratic rights for those in the back list because for past 32 years they were denied entry into India and were forced to take political asylum in the foreign countries. DSGMC President Manjit Singh G.K. said that on his visit to United States of America In 2015 he was approached by Sikhs asking him to take up the matter with Indian Government, after which he started political and legal efforts on war footing.
In this connection, G.K. said he met Indian ambassador in United States Arun Kumar Singh on 1 June 2015, on 12 June same he filed application under right to information for seeking names of those in the black list, on 20 August 2015 he met External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and filed a petition in Delhi High Court seeking directions for the Government of India to give information under RTI on the matter.
“Due to vehement efforts from time to time by Punjab government and DSGMC, 225 names from the black list were removed leading to long awaited relief for the families”, said G.K.
Manjit Singh G.K. said that some confusion over the matter continues because in February 2011 Home Ministry of Government of India revealed that there are 169 names in the black list out of which 142 were removed, but as per fresh information the number of Sikhs in the list have gone up by 298 and response on the matter is awaited. He demanded that remaining 73 names should also be cleared from the black list.
“The government should clarify how 129 new names have been added in the list”, G.K. demanded. He raised apprehensions that previous congress party led UPA government in its tenure added new names. G.K. who is also President of Shiromani Akali Dal in Delhi said that next hearing in the High Court in the matter is fixed for 26 September 2016 and hoped that Government of India would clarify on the confusion by then.

Not allowing installation of the statue of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur and not allotting seats for admissions in two minority institutions run by DSGMC is the reason that forced Sikhs to resort to protest.G.K. said Kejriwal refused permission for installing statue of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur in Mehrauli park taking plea of an order of the Supreme Court, but on 13 August he unveiled statue first CM of Delhi Chaudhary Brahm Prakash in village Khera Dabur hospital, purely for political gains. “Delhi government run IP University has not permitted two institutions run by DSGMC for admissions but 34 other institutions under the university are admitting students in-spite of serious discrepancies,” G.K. also said.
G.K. added that Kejriwal’s policies and intentions are to rob Sikhs of their rights. He said Sikhs have accepted when Delhi government said Baba Banda Singh Bahadur statues could not be installed due to Supreme Court’s orders, but they had to raise voice and resort to protest when statues of Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev were installed in Delhi Vidhan Sabha.

Manjit Singh G.K. writes to Lt. Governor for registering criminal case against Kejriwal and Swati Maliwal
The President of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Manjit Singh G.K. who is also President of Shiromani Akali Dal in Delhi today demanded dissolving Delhi Commission for Women and constituting a new body. He demanded this in a letter sent to LT. Governor Najeeb Jung, blaming Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi Commission for Women chairperson Swati Maliwal for forcing Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) worker Soni to commit suicide.
Talking to reporters G.K. raised questions for not giving timely treatment to the victim in Delhi government run Raja Harishchander hospital in Narela. G.K. said Kejriwal who came to power by promising security and safety of women in Delhi is leading the team of his party workers who see women with bad intentions. DSGMC President also said that Kejriwal is anti-women because he suggested Soni to reach a compromise when she complained that she was exploited by party leaders and workers.
He also said that Kejriwal who used to talk hoarse after Nirbhaya incident, and when Bhawri Devi like incident has happened in state where he runs the government, G.K. questioned that will he give compensation of Rs. One crore to the Soni’s family and when will he dismiss the leaders of his party against whom Soni complained.Taking dig on Kejriwal G.K. said that he had time for Gujarat Dalits but no time to meet family of Soni who lives in Narela. He promised to give Rs. One lakh for education of Soni’s children and demanded that the investigation of the case be given to CBI and not SDM.
SAD Delhi President said that DCW is highly politicised as it kept sitting on the complaint lodged by Soni. “I fail to understand why the commission promptly took up case of former captain of hockey team Sardar Singh after a complaint lodged by his female companion when a case was already registered in Ludhiana. The commission has jurisdiction in Delhi but his political intentions touches as far as Punjab which is heading for assembly polls. I have told Lt. Governor that instead of taking care of the rights of women in Delhi, the chairperson prefers to expand her political intentions”, G.K.
G.K. also said that incase the victim was given timely treatment in the hospital she could have been saved but she was denied this right also under the pressure of AAP workers.
He appealed to the Lt. Governor to book Kejriwal and Swati Maliwal under section 306 of Indian penal code. He added that action by Delhi Commission for Women in a case related to Punjab was illegal and immoral.
SAD Secretary General in Delhi Harmeet Singh Kalka, Senior Akali leaders Avtar Singh Hit and Onkar Singh Thapar, DSGMC senior Vice President Mahinder Pal Singh Chadha, Vice President Satpal Singh, Joint Secretary Amarjeet Singh Fateh Nagar, Members Kulmohan Singh, Ravinder Singh Khurana, Harvinder Singh K.P, Harjinder Singh, Paramjit Singh Chandok, Chaman Singh, Hardev Singh Dhanoa, Dheeraj Kaur, Jeet Singh and SAD Spokesman Parminder Pal Singh and Jaswinder Singh Jolly were also present.

New Delhi 5 August 2016 –
The President of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Manjit Singh G.K. today wrote a letter to the Home Minister Government of India Rajnath Singh demanding registration of case against Congress leader Kamal Nath for his involvement in attack on Gurdwara Rakabganj Sahib in 1984 after killing of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
In an eleven page letter G.K. presented facts to support his complaint and demanded that Special investigation team (SIT) constituted by the union government or the local police should register FIR against Kamal Nath because two innocent Sikhs were killed in the attack on Gurdwara Sahib.
Speaking to the media today in Gurdwara Rakabganj Sahib Manjit Singh G.K. said that the attack on Gurdwara Sahib on 1 November 1984 was led by Kamal Nath. Referring to a book by Indian Express Journalist Sanjay Suri DSGMC President said that Kamal nath was part of the mob that came from Teen Murti. During the attack A.C.P. Gautam Kaul and Hukam Chand Jatav along with C.R.P.F. jawans were also present who never stopped the mob, and it was a pre-planned attack.
G.K. said that the journalist has narrated the incident before Nanavati and RangNath Mishra commissions. He said the explanation given by Kamal Nath in his defense before the two commissions was full of lies. DSGMC President who is also President of Shiromani Akali Dal in Delhi said that national news network doordarshan has shown mob raising slogans of “Khoon ka badla Khoon” and Kamal Nath entering the Gurdwara Rakabganj Sahib with the mob and killing of two innocent Sikhs was not a coincidence.
DSGMC president said that the rumors spread to create hatred against the Sikhs were part of the pre-planned strategy to eliminate Sikhs with the help of government paraphernalia. He announced that the DSGMC will continue its fight for justice to the Sikhs and arrest of Kamal Nath. Replying to a question from media G.K. said that incase the Union Home Minister didn’t order registration of FIR against Kamal Nath despite it being a strong case, he would approach the court seeking directions for registration of FIR against Kamal Nath.
