NDA govt asks Haryana governor to withdraw assent to separate Gurudwara Parbhandak Committee Bill
It seems that Narendra Modi led Govt. has buckled under the pressure of Punjab Chief Minister, Parkash Singh Badal. Union home secretary's letter to Haryana Chief Secretary to convey the Haryana Governor, Jagannath Pahadia to reconsider the assent to separate Gurudwara Parbhandak Committee Bill is described in political, administrative and media circles as major political and administrative blunder of Modi Govt. which could have far reaching political implications.
Union government has taken the stand that Haryana Assembly which has passed resolution of a separate committee is not competent to do so whereas a Haryana Govt. spokesperson told said under Punjab reorganisation act, State Assembly is competent to pass such bill.

The Home Secretary's letter has put Governor Pahadia in very embracing position as he reportedly do not want to be seen disobeying the directions but at the same time he has no option in this matter.

According to the legal experts in this case there is option of either challenging it in Supreme Court or Govt. can send it to President of India as was done in case of resolution passed by Punjab Assembly under chief ministership of Amrinder Singh cancelling all inter state agreements signed between Punjab and Haryana.

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda is smiling as he is hopeful of major political gains in coming assembly polls as now he can tell Haryana Sikhs clamouring for separate Committee that not only Indian National Lok Dal but BJP has also opposed the move. According to some political analysts BJP should have refused to come under pressure of Badal who has already proved liability for the party in just concluded Lok Sabha polls.

For the last one week things are moving with jet speed as with the passing of resolution by the Haryana Assembly, Akal Takht, the supreme body of Sikhs ex-communicated Haryana Minister H.S.Chatha, Nalvi and others pressing for separate Committee and Akal Takhat has refused to reconsider their request for withdrawing the orders.

H.S. Chatha has shot back to Badal stating that he will abide by the orders of Akal Takhat but at the same time Badal should also resign from the chief ministership. It may be recalled that Sikhs of Haryana have welcomed the bill and there was not vocal protests against it. Badal is trying to meet Narendra Modi in this connection.
