''There are some serious charges against the Dera Chief which are not acceptable. We appeal to the people of Haryana to put some force on the government so that some action is taken against the Dera Chief,'' said Joginder Singh Vedanti, Head Priest, Akal Takht. Earlier the SGPC, the body that manages all Sikh Gurudwaras, had rejected the fresh letter of apology sent by the Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Singh Ram Rahim. The SGPC rejected the apology saying that they need to apologize sincerely. The Dera chief had expressed regret for newspaper advertisements which showed him dressed up like the Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh. The move had resulted in tension and protests across Punjab and neighbouring states last month.
