Patiala: Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee will campaign for Indian National Lok Dal, as well as Shiromani Akali Dal candidates for the coming Haryana Assembly elections.

SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar today said here that Since SAD has entered into an alliance with INLD in Haryana, being an Akali it was his duty to campaign for INLD and SAD.

Talking to reporters here, he said that Congress government in Haryana has been "dividing Sikhs on the issue of separate gurudwara management committee, it was our duty to canvass against the divisive policies of the Congress."

Asserting that SGPC had been paying special attention to development and maintenance of Sikh shrines in Haryana, Makkar said that funds collected from Haryana gurudwaras had been spent on maintenance of these shrines.
