In the last election of Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) held in 2013, its former President, Paramjit Singh Sarna received a whopping defeat. Realising the inimical defeat ahead of polls, Sarna left no stone unturned to avoid rout of power.
It is noteworthy that Sarna was responsible for a bloody clash outside Gurudwara Rakabganj took place on November 2012. The bloody clash took place when Delhi unit of the Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal), and his supporters had been invited for the DSGMC executive meeting at the gurdwara.
As soon as they reached there, members of the DSGMC task force attacked them without any provocation. Sarna is frustrated and desperate to take control of Gurudwaras but his last tenure as President DSGMC; was an exhibit of misgovernance, corruption and nepotism.
What could have been more shameful then resorting to violence outside a historic shrine?
With the forthcoming DSGMC elections around the corner, Sarna is getting panicky as defeat is looming large over him. A large number of his followers have already deserted him and now he can go to any extent to wrest power.
