Sikh holy city mayor is RSS-BJP man as part of SAD formula

AMRITSAR: In keeping with the typical Akali Dal strategy of conceding any chance of representing the Sikh holy city of Amritsar to the saffron brigade of RSS-BJP, the party this time hammered out a compromise by making BJP Councilor Shavet Malik as Mayor of Amritsar on Thursday. With this, the constituency in which Golden Temple is located is represented by Luxmi Kanta Chawla while the Lok Sabha seat is represented by Navjot Singh Sidhu of the BJP who was recently in the news and photos for leading a havan ceremony in a dhoti and turban.

The SAD claimed two posts of Senior Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayor in the Municipal Corporation for Ajaybir Pal Singh  and Kashmir Singh , respectively. Congress councilors boycotted the elections.
