The Akhand Kirtani Jatha honored Ardasia Bhai Balbir Singh who denied the Siropa to Punjab CM Parkash Singh Badal. The Jatha presented Bhai Balbir Singh with a 1 lakh check after he refused to be transferred and had to resign from his position. Bhai Balbir was a sevadar at Sri Harmandir Sahib since the early 1980s.
Previously, the Akhand Kirtani Jatha announced a monthly pay of 25,000 rupees to the Panj Piyaras of Sri Akal Takht Sahib who were removed by the SGPC due to issuing summons to former Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh. The Jatha has also given a van for the travel of the Panj Piyaras.
The Akhand Kirtani Jatha has continued services to the Panth despite for decades and stood up against injustice. There are other much wealthier organisations among the Khalsa Panth but no one dares to help those who stand up against oppression and tyranny.
