A day after chief minister Parkash Singh Badal met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the Bhullar issue, president of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) Avtar Singh Makkar has now sought time from the President of India, Prime Minister and home minister.


In a press release, SGPC secretary Dalmegh Singh said that SGPC chief Makkar was making efforts to save Davinderpal Singh Bhullar from gallows and the former has sought time from the President, Prime Minister and home minister.

Dalmegh further stressed that once the time is given, SGPC chief, along with members of the new house, Sant Samaj and Damdami Taksal, would go to Delhi and apprise the President and Prime Minister that hanging of Bhullar may create a law and order problem in Punjab, besides hurting the sentiments of Sikhs.
