Phagwara: SAD senior leader and SAD Political Affairs Committee member Jathedar Sukhdev Singh Bhaur resigned from the primary membership of the Akali Dal in protest against the sacrilege incident. Bhaur is also general secretary of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbhandhak Committee. This will be a major setback to SAD as Bhaur was a Tohra loyalist and also a Sikh scholar.
Meanwhile, Charanjit Singh also resigned from the membership of the SGPC. He was nominated member of the SGPC from UP. In his resignation he has alleged that the SGPC has failed to upkeep the honour of Guru Granth Sahib.
SGPC member Rajinder Kaur resigned from her membership protesting the desecration of Guru Granth Sahib here on Sunday. She is wife of Pritpal Singh, president of Gurdwara Dukh Niwaran Sahib. She was elected SGPC member from Ludhiana (west) constituency.
