Amritsar: Gurdwara Elections Chief Commissioner H S Brar on Thursday directed Punjab government officials not to entertain politicians coming with vote registration forms in bulk for upcoming Shiromani Gurudwara Parbhandhak Committee (SGPC) elections.

Now this practice would not be allowed in order to prevent fake registration of votes, Brar told reporters.

The aim behind the move is to promote transparency in the SGPC elections, he added.

New voter has to himself appear before the Electoral Officer to submit his form so that all young people above the age of 21 could become eligible to cast their vote, he said.

He said the process of registration of new votes would be completed by November this year and thereafter date for SGPC general elections would be announced.
