The members said they had formed a new wing — Sikh Sikligar Vanjara Helping Hands and adopted the village.
“We have opened 16 stitching centres in Bagh village and surrounding four-five villages. We have got bore wells dug up in five villages. We have also opened dhabas, tea stalls and cycle repair sheds for people to earn a better livelihood. We have also arranged to provide tuition fee for 300 children of the villages there,” they added.

The members said many villagers do not have a concrete roof in their houses and that they had appealed to the Centre and state to make provisions for them under the PM Awaas Yojna.
