    Singh Makkar today said the SGPC had decided to seek the opinion of legal experts for the expeditious implementation of the anand Marriage Act.
    Addressing mediapersons after a meeting with SGPC members in connection with the December 23 protest outside the US Embassy, Makkar said they would soon form a committee of legal experts to make efforts in this direction, adding they had already contacted some experts for the same. He was responding to a question on the recent meeting of the Sikh clergy which had directed the SGPC to step up efforts for the implementation of the Act.

    On the December 23 protest over the turban frisking issue, Makkar said ideally the matter should have been resolved diplomatically by the Centre but as the “government has not taken any measure, the SGPC has to resort to such a step”. He said the protest march would begin from Gurdwara Rakabganj at 11 am and subsequently a dharna would be staged outside the US Embassy.

    As long as Badal senior is around anand Marriage Act is unlikely to be pushed for by SGPC . Badal knows to opposition of RSS to this Act . So any action on part of SGPC regarding this is mere playing to the gallery nothing concrete . Paramjit Singh Sarna is the only man who can make this possible in a matter of few hours seeing his proximity to Congress & Sonia . He is also willing to push it as he has hinted in the past also .
