Anandpur Sahib: Punjab’s powerful revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia on Tuesday cleaned shoes, washed utensils and listened to religious hymns at the Takht Keshgarh Sahib here as part of religious penance.
Majithia, a senior Akali Dal leader, was ordered by the Sikh high priests on May 1 to do religious penance at the five temporal seats (Takhts) of the Sikh religion after he distorted a religious hymn during a political event for Arun Jaitley, the Bharatiya Janata Party candidate from the Amritsar Lok Sabha seat.
Majithia was asked to carry out voluntary service (sewa) at each of the five Takht, Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbhachan Singh had announced.
