Harish Rawat

Punjab Affairs incharge Harish Rawat has apologised for comparing the PPCC's working presidents to Panj Pyare the day before.Rawat stated that he had no intention of hurting Sikh emotions and that comparing working presidents to Panj Pyare was incorrect.He said he regarded the Panj Pyare in great regard and has strived to improve Sikhism-related places in Uttarakhand.

He said that during his time as Uttarakhand's chief minister, he was crucial in establishing a road link between Nanakmata Sahib and Ritha Sahib gurdwaras, as well as ensuring a smooth and safe journey for visitors to Hemkunt Sahib."Sometimes while showing respect, you use words that are objectionable. I too made the mistake of using the term Punj Pyare for the Punjab chief (Mr Sidhu) and his working presidents.

I am a student of history and the Punj Pyara cannot  be equated with anybody. I apologise for hurting sentiments. As penance, I will go to a gurdwara in my state and clean the complex with a broom," Harish Rawat, the Congress's Punjab in-charge, said today."It was my responsibility to meet with the PPCC (Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee) chief, or I would say the Panj Pyaras...," Mr Rawat had said in Chandigarh yesterday, with Mr Sidhu by his side.
