Few days ago the Maharashtra government had appointed a non-Sikh ,Abhijit Rajendra Raut, the collector of Nanded as the administrator of the Takhat Sachkhand Shri Hazur Abchalnagar Sahib in Nanded, Maharashtra.

After a worldwide resentment lodged by the Sikh community, the Maharashtra government today appointed a Sikh, Vijay Satbir Singh, a former IAS officer as the new Administrator for Takhat Sachkhand Shri Hazur Abchalnagar Sahib in Nanded, Maharashtra.

Even, Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) had written to the Maharashtra government over this appointment as it had created “discontent among Sikhs in Nanded and even in Punjab”.
