Talking to media-persons here today, State Gurdwara Parbandhak Board Chairman TS Wazir said that in a special meeting of the DGPC Jammu held here, eight members out of 11 participated wherein, two new office bearers were elected, after the no confidence motion was moved against the two office bearers- Avtar Singh Khalsa –Secretary and Manmohan Singh- Treasurer of the DGPC, Jammu.
DGPC member, Fateh Singh was unanimously elected as Secretary while Darbinder Singh as Treasurer of DGPC Jammu.
He disclosed that action was taken by the DGPC Jammu against two office members, after they were allegedly found involved in mismanagement and mis-appropriation of funds. There are also allegations against them that they were acting in an arbitrary manner without even consulting the President DGPC Jammu. When asked to tender resignation on moral grounds, they refused to do so. Therefore, the Committee with majority members, passed ‘no confidence motion’ against them and sacked the both.
