Most of the Sikhs think that perhaps the sehajdhari sikhs were made voters for sgpc elections in Punjab Sikh Gurdawaras act 1925 but it is not so. In this act there was no mention of sehajdhari sikhs and to make them as voters.It was in 1959 that amendment was made in the act to make sehajdhari sikhs as voters. Akali leaders made allegations that it was so done to make non Sikhs as voters by the then congress govt.to take over the control of sikh gurdawaras as the over whelming majority of Sikhs were with Akali dal. There was confrontation between Akali dal and the govt.on the reorganization of Punjab on linguistic basis.In the elections of sgpc held in 1960,Akali dal won 136 seats out of 140 while congress sponsered board could get only 4 seats.Thereafter Akali dal won sgpc elections uptill now and retained its control over it. The amended provision was not exploited and neither it could be so done. Sgpc passed resolutions several times to repeal the 1959 amendment but it was not so done. Just before the 2004 sgpc elections this amendment was undone by govt.of India and sehajdhari sikhs were deprived of the right to be the voters for sgpc elections. Now no sehajdhari sikh can become voter for sgpc elections.
