State Times NewsJammu: A meeting of various Sikh organizations of J&K was held under the chairmanship of Sudarshan Singh Wazir, Chairman Sikh United Front (SUF) J&K on Wednesday, wherein the participants welcomed the voice raised by Member of Parliament Manish Tewari from Shri Anandpur Sahib Punjab for inclusion of Punjabi among official languages of J&K UT.The Sikh United Front resented that Harsimrat Kaur, being a member of cabinet committee where bill for official languages of J&K UT was approved, failed to perform her role for providing justice to Punjabi speaking people of J&K.
