Jasbir Singh Jessy will head the Gurdwara Sahib Kampung Pandan Settlement gurdwara management committee (GMC) for the next two years.
The former committee president makes a comeback when he gained 98 votes against out-going GMC president Aphtar Singh who garnered 18 votes at its biennial general meeting (BGM) yesterday (20 March 2016).
“Our main priority moving forward is to build the new gurdwara building,” Jasbir tells Asia Samachar.
Jasbir had served as the GMC president earlier for 10 years between 2003 and 2013.
When asked why he contested when he had earlier told Asia Samachar that he would be making way after serving a two-year term, Aphtar said it was upon the request of a segment of the gurdwara members. See here.
The gurdwara, located a mere two kilometres from Wadda Gurdwara Sahib Kampung Pandan and about 10km from Gurdwara Sahib Sungai Besi, is moving into high gear to build its new building.
