DSGMC is not serious about safety of women- Inder Mohan Singh
Delhi- 30th April : S. Inder Mohan Singh, Sr. Vice President of Shiromani Akali Dal Delhi said that the way by which an ‘Internal Complaints Redressal Committee’ for redressal of complaints of Sexual harassment at workplace was constituted by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) recently on 25th April proves that the office-bearers are not at all serious about the safety of women. While making allegations in this regard, Mr. Singh informed that the management has constituted a 4 members Redressal Committee headed by a lady Superintendent, a Typist & a class-IV level Sewadarni of DSGMC along with a N.G.O. lady. S. Inder Mohan Singh while declaring this Redressal Committee merely as mimicry asked the DSGMC management whether this Superintendent level Committee is competent to inquire into the allegations of sexual harassment & women molestation leveled against their senior officers ? Whether the recommendations made by these junior employees against their senior officers will be legal in the eyes of law ? Mr. Singh asked where is the office of this Redressal Committee and whether publically announcing the residential addresses & mobile numbers of this Committee in the Office Order will not be a threat to the safety of these women Committee members ? S. Inder Mohan Singh said that only top most senior officers should have been included in the Internal Redressal Committee, but presently police cases have been registered against 3 suspended top officers of DSGMC for sexual harassment & women molestation, which is very unfortunate & pathetic for a religious body like DSGMC.
