New Delhi, Nov 22 (UNI) Newly-formed Shiromani Akali Dal(Khalsa) today vowed to stamp out corruption from Sikh politics in Delhi, saying it would fight to bring about reforms in the administration of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee-run gurdwaras and educational institutions.
Addressing a news conference at the launch of the party here, SAD(Khalsa) president Gagan Singh Bindra said,'' The funds of DSGMC-run Gurdwaras are being embezzled in a big way. Those who are running the DSGMC are pocketing its funds which otherwise should be spent for the betterment of the community and other noble works.'' He accused SAD(Badal) Delhi unit chief Avtar Singh Hit and DSGMC president Paramjit Singh Sarna of pocketing the funds meant for Gurdwaras in the capital and said Hit and SAD(Badal) chief Sukhbir Singh Badal have double standards, which is why he broke away from their party.
About the Delhi Assembly elections, he said the SAD(Badal) would lose all four seats it was contesting as all it lacked support and all its misdeeds stood exposed.
''Within two days, my party will be registerd, and within the next ten day I will name its 31 office-bearers, who will go all out to root out corruption from Sikh politics. My party members will work selflessly without having sights on the money involved in Sikh politics,'' Mr Bindra assured.
