In a move that may trigger new controversies,Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh on Sunday banned Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) meeting scheduled to be held in Ludhiana on July 19 over the issue of printing errors in Birs (replicas of Granth).

Addressing mediapersons,the Jathedar said that no doubt certain Birs were printed with errors,but some political leaders with the vested interests were trying to exploit the issue.

He added that there were reports that the DSGMC was organising the meeting on the issue despite the matter being investigated by Shiormani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC).

A three-member committee comprising Giani Man Singh,Giani Mal Singh and Giani Bhupinder Singh had already detected the errors,he said. But when asked that if the Jathedar will make public the committee report,he was non-committal.
