SGPC to give Rs 50 lakh for legal assistance announces jobs for qualified kids of survivors

Seeking a judicial probe into the Hond-Chhillar carnage by a sitting Judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, the SGPC today allocated Rs 50 lakh for facilitating any legal action needed in connection with the incident. The decision was taken at a meeting of the SGPC executive held at Sri Anandpur Sahib today. SGPC President Avtar Singh Makkar also announced that the children of the victims, who fulfiled educational qualifications, would be given jobs in the SGPC.
He said the survivors of the carnage could not even perform the last rites of their near and dear ones due to a fearful atmosphere prevailing in 1984 and therefore the SGPC was holding an akhand path at the Golden Temple complex from March 2 to 4. The SGPC executive strongly condemned the Hond-Chhillar massacre and also passed a resolution demanding a judicial probe into the incident.

For spreading education, the executive decided to open a public school in Dehla village (Sangrur); a college in Kalyan village ( Ludhiana); a polytechnic at Jagraon, and another college in Gaga village (Sangrur). It also sanctioned the installation of mobile jammers at the Golden Temple, 13 computers for ‘karah parshad’ counters at Gurdwara Dukh Niwaran Sahib, Patiala, and Gurdwara Beer Sahib, two buses for Baba Budha Jee Public School, and the setting up of a Sikh mission at Ujjain, MP
