Khalistani terrorist Gopal Chawla admits Pakistan being under pressure from India to throw him out of Pakistani Sikh committee

Chawla is also suspected to be involved in the bomb blast at a Nirankari gathering in Amritsar in which three people were killed. India was particularly less inclined to take the talks of Kartarpur corridor project ahead due to the presence of pro-Khalistani elements in the committee appointed by Pakistan to administer the project.

Venting his frustration for being unceremoniously thrown out of the Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (PSGPC), Khalistani terrorist Gopal Singh Chawla admitted that Pakistan was under severe pressure from India for his removal from the committee.

A day before the crucial rounds of technical-talks for the Kartarpur corridor between India and Pakistan, Islamabad dropped Gopal Singh Chawla and other Khalistani proponents from the committee.

Miffed with the development, Chawla was found in a video admitting that Pakistan was under intense pressure from India for his removal. He also continued peddling his usual rhetoric regarding Khalistan. Apart from Chawla, the other anti-India, pro-Khalistani proponents that were dropped from the committee are Maninder Singh, Tara Singh, Bisan Singh, and Kuljit Singh.

Dropping Chawla’s name from the panel, an official statement from Pakistan on Friday said, “The Federal Government (Federal Cabinet) has been pleased to re-constitute the Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC).”

The dismissal of Chawla comes amidst persistent objection flagged by the Indian authorities over Chawla and other Khalistani supporters’ inclusion by Pakistan in the committee entrusted with the responsibility of overlooking the Kartarpur corridor project.

“India has made its concerns known to Pakistan and solicited explanations on reports that controversial elements have been selected in a committee associated with the Kartarpur corridor. It has been conveyed that the next meeting on the modalities can be scheduled at an appropriate time after receiving Pakistan’s response,” said India’s official response on March 29 this year.

The Kartarpur corridor had hit roadblocks after differences in modalities emerged between the two countries. India was particularly less inclined to take the talks ahead due to the presence of undesirable elements in the committee appointed by Pakistan to administer the project. Many security analysts have already been arguing that the real motive of Pakistan behind developing Kartarpur corridor is to mobilise terrorists and once again revive militancy in Punjab. Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh had voiced similar concerns too.

Gopal Singh Chawla, an ardent supporter of Khalistan, a separate nation for Punjabi Sikhs and is also an active member of pro-Khalistani terror outfits. He is also suspected to be involved in the bomb blast at a Nirankari gathering in Amritsar in which three people were killed. Gopal Chawla is also believed to be a close aide of Pakistan sponsored Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Hafeez Saeed and has been accused of being in contact with the ISI to hatch terror plots against India.
