A reporter saying he’s from a news service in Bhathinda recorded his conversation with SGPC head Avtar Singh Makkar. In the telephone conversation it appears the tough questions by the reporter had Makkar scratching his head. The reporter questioned him on various issues such as the Nanakshahi Calendar, security of Jathedar of Nandgarh, and whether SGPC implements decisions.
During the conversation Makkar tries to dodge almost every question. He repeatedly ignores the question by saying ask the state or ask the Akal Takht Jathedar.
