    A delegation of the All India Shiromani Akali Dal leaders today met governor NN Vohra at Raj Bhavan here and discussed the situation in Kashmir Valley and issues relating to welfare of the Sikh community.

    The six-member delegation, led by S Jaswant Singh Maan, demanded measures for socio-economic development of the Sikh community, their representation in various bodies, including the state legislature, J&K public service commission and J&K subordinate services recruitment board.

    In their memorandum of demands, they wanted launching of a special recruitment drive for the Sikh youth in Kashmir Valley and teaching of Punjabi language in the schools in the Valley.

    Other demands included setting up of a Punjabi department in the University of Kashmir and establishing a Punjabi section in the Jammu and Kashmir State Academy of Art, Culture and Languages.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
