Chandigarh, Sep 23 (PTI) Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday asked when a separate gurdwara committee can formed for Patna Sahib and Delhi, then why the same cannot be done in Haryana.

Khattar made the statement in the wake of the Supreme Court upholding the validity of the Haryana Sikh Gurdwara (Management) Act enacted by the state legislature to manage religious places of Sikhs effectively and permanently under the exclusive control of the Sikhs of Haryana.

The Act was enacted under the Congress rule when Bhupinder Singh Hooda was the chief minister of Haryana.
