Manmohan Singh New Delhi, April 7 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Tuesday met a delegation of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) led by its president Sardar Paramjit Singh Sarna and appealed to them to support the Congress.
The meeting assumes importance as various Sikh organisations held a protest at Jantar Mantar here against the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) clean chit to Congress leader Jagdish Tytler in a case relating to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

“India’s rapid economic growth and the corporate performance is [due to] the man who single handedly dealt with the country’s economy and pushed India on the economic prosperity,” Dikshit told the delegation, referring to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Delhi Education and Transport minister Arvinder Singh Lovely and other prominent Sikh leaders also attended the meeting, an official statement said.
