The cell will have a five-member body, Jaswant Singh Arora was elected as the Convener, Pritpal Singh Saluja as Senior Vice President, Davinder Singh Sahni as Vice President and Balwinder Singh Renu as the General Secretary.

“Unfortunately remembering 1984 riots, the community has been till now treated as vote banks with none of the members who lost their family in the riots getting justice,” Arvind Kejriwal said.

Speaking at an event at the Constitution Club, AAP leader Kumar Vishwas said right from the time of independence , when Bhagat Singh sacrificied his life, till today the community has been pivotal in pushing India on the road to success. “However, corruption within the government has led to delayed justice of the 1984 riot victims,” Vishwas added.

Speaking on the occasion, Veerji said that the entire Sikh community of Delhi was now with Aam Aadmi Party in its fight against corruption. The cell will now work on all possible ways to reach out to the community members so that AAP emerges victorious in the forthcoming Assembly elections, he added.
