http://www.tribuneindia.com/<wbr>2010/20100101/punjab.htm#4 No expert on executive committee: Bhaur Tribune News Service Jalandhar, December 31 SGPC general secretary Sukhdev Singh Bhaur said today that any decision with regard to the Nanakshahi Calendar should be taken keeping in view interests of the Sikh community. He said a permanent solution to the issue should be found. "Today one section was pressing for changes and tomorrow other section could ask for the same," said Bhaur. He said there was no expert on the calendar in the SGPC's executive committee to which the issue had been referred by the five Sikh High priests yesterday. It is learnt that in absence of consensus to bring about the proposed changes in the calendar, the high priests referred the issue stating that they would discuss the changes only after the approval of the panel. A crucial meeting of the executive committee will be held on January 3 in this regard. Sources said all members of the executive panel had been asked to remain present at the meeting. A section of SAD leaders, who call the shots as far as the SGPC affairs are concerned, is also "supporting" the changes in the calendar, as it reportedly wanted to win the support of pro-changes section in the general elections of the SGPC likely to be held in mid-2010. It is learnt that they have been "pressing" the executive panel to approve the proposed changes. There are reports that some members of the executive panel would reportedly press for handing over the issue to a committee of experts that had earlier approved the calendar in 2003. The Institute of Sikh Studies, an organisation of Sikh scholars, had played a vital role in getting the Nanakshahi calendar implemented in 2003. On its request then, the calendar was first examined at the Dharm Parchar committee level and later an expert committee was set up to approve it. After it was approved by the committee, the executive and general house of the SGPC and the Sikh high priests, before its implementation, had also approved the calendar.
