SANGRUR: A panel of Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) on Saturday visited Gurdwara Singh Sabha, Mastuana Sahib in Sangrur to look into its design after it was alleged to be a replica of Sri Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple). The committee members visited the site on Saturday to review the promised changes made in the design.

A five-member panel was constituted by the SGPC to look into the matter in January after United Akali Dal (UAD) leader Purshotam Singh Phaguwala went on hunger strike over the issue. The SGPC had assured him to implement the 2009 edict of Sri Akal Takht Sahib through which it had ordered the management of the Mastuana Sahib gurdwara to change its structure.

Barring member of the panel Malkeet Singh, four members of the panel, including SGPC executive member Hardev Singh Rogla, Bhupinder Singh Bhalwan, Karnail Singh Panjoli, and manager of Gurdwara Nankiana Sahib Ranjit Singh visited the Gurdwara Singh Sabha, Mastuana Sahib. They claimed that the gurdwara management had promised to review the changes in its structure but failed to do so even after many years.
