As a president of Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC), Paramjit Singh Sarna had made news for all the wrong reasons. His tenure was marred with corruption charges and misgovernance of all the committee run institutes.
Backstabbing entire Sikh community, Sarna on February 10, 2005, passed ownership of Master Tara Singh car parking at Gurdwara Bangla Sahib to New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC). It is noteworthy that NDMC was ruled by Congress at that time and Sarna’s closeness with grand old party of India is an open secret.
Parking lot along Gurdwara Bangla Sahib was attached to the Gurdwara in 1970 with the efforts of Jathedar Santokh Singh and it was decided to convert it into parking lot for the convenience of pilgrims. A road that existed on the location was closed down to give way to the parking.
It is pertinent to note that on January 25, 2001 NDMC chairman BP Mishra and on July 25, 2002 then Lt. Governor of New Delhi Vijay Kapoor, had assured then president of SAD-Delhi Avtar Singh Hit that the building plan of the parking submitted would be cleared.
Now crucial questions arises here – what was the need to handover the hand over the parking lot to NDMC and that too after 25 years of its allotment.
