KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Punjabi Business Chamber president Datuk Daljit Singh Dalliwal was sworn in as a Senator before Dewan Negara president Tan Sri Dr Abdul Hamid Pawanteh yesterday.
Daljit Singh, 48, holds a Masters in Business Administration from the University of New England, United States, and became active in politics when he joined MIC in 1989.
He has been the Telawi MIC branch chairman since 1990 and Federal Territory MIC executive council member since 2005.
He said his appointment proved that the Government did not neglect the Sikhs.
”The Sikhs have been waiting for this moment and most Sikhs are from the MIC. This is also an honour for the Indians generally and the Sikh community in particular. It is an honour for me and the family,” he said.
Besides politics, Daljit also takes part in charity work involving the Sikh community and gurdwaras. — Bernama
