Namdhari once had 14 cases against him


Namdhari soon tried to extend his political reach to Uttarakhand's capital Dehradun. It was then BJP chief minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank who appointed him chairman of the State Minorities Commission in March 2010. Sources in the Uttarakhand BJP said that another former party CM, Bhagat Singh Koshiyari, too had backed Namdhari's name for the post.

On his Facebook account, Namdhari flaunts photographs showing him with VHP leader Praveen Togadia, former Karnataka CM B S Yeddyurappa, former RSS boss K S Sudarshan and Pokhriyal, apart from Ponty himself. In the account, he identifies himself as president of the Rashtriya Sikh Sangat and as "organiser" of Gurukul Kangri University.

Following his name cropping up in the Chadha deaths, Namdhari was removed from the minorities commission post.

The state BJP leadership says it is waiting and watching for now. "The party will wait for the police decision in this case before initiating any action against him," party Uttarakhand chief Bishan Singh Chuphal said.
