Amritsar, November 27

Gobind Singh Longowal was re-appointed the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee chief amid ruckus at the general house meeting at Teja Singh Samundri Hall here.

Longowal’s name was proposed by former SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur and was endorsed by Alwinder Pal Singh Pakhoke, nephew of SAD (Taksali) chief Ranjit Singh Brahmpura.

At this, some members—Balwinder Singh Bains, Mahinder Singh Hussainpur, Sukhdev Singh Bhaur, Amrik Singh Shahpur and Sarwan Singh—staged a walkout.

They claimed that it was not right to announce the name of a person as president without saying what he had achieved in his previous term.  

Also, Harjinder Singh Dhami and Rajinder Singh Mehta were re-elected general secretary and senior vice-president, respectively

Longowal was re-appointed amid slogans of ‘Bole so nihal’.

Born on October 18, 1956, Longowal was first elected as president of the SGPC in 2017, and also in 2018.

A two-time MLA and a former minister in Punjab, Longowal was a close associate of former SAD leader Harchand Singh Longowal.
