The delegation, which included DSGMC general secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa and joint secretary Harmeet Singh Kalka alongwith SAD leaders Onkar Singh Thapar and Kuldeep Singh Bhogal also demanded that chargesheet against Congress leader Sajjan Kumar which has been held back for 22 years since 1992 be sent to the court.
