The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has objected to the arrival of Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann along with his family as a VIP at the Golden Temple on the occasion of Prakash Parv of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. SGPC chief Harjinder Singh Dhami called it condemnable. At the same time, the opposition is also preparing to surround the CM on this.
Significantly, on Sunday, the first Prakash Parv of Sri Guru Granth Sahib was celebrated at the Golden Temple. In which in the evening, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, along with his wife Dr. Gurpreet Kaur and family reached here. Due to the VIP movement, the police had also closed the roads leading to the Golden Temple and the Sangat was also stopped for the CM at the Golden Temple Plaza. On which SGPC Principal Advocate Harjinder Singh Dhami has objected.

Pradhan Dhami said that it is condemnable for CM Mann to come as a VIP on the occasion of Prakash Parv. The leaders should come to the Gurughar to bow their heads towards the common Sikh, and not in a dictatorial manner. While reaching the Golden Temple of CM Mann, the roads and the sangat at the plaza were stopped for a long time. The first Prakash Parv was important for the sangat and everyone had come to the gurughar to pay obeisance, but the treatment done to the devotees is going to hurt the reverence.
This has happened in Sultanpur Lodhi also.
He said that earlier the same had happened in Sultanpur Lodhi. In view of this, the interim committee decided to call a meeting and appealed to the politicians not to harass the sangat on the occasion of bowing down in the Gurughars. CM Bhagwant Mann should not commit acts that hurt the faith of the devotees.
