Punjab’s CM, Bhagwant Mann, recently had a press conference in Pathankot. The entire video from the conference has been shared on the official Twitter account of CM Bhagwant Mann. The 17-minute and 14-second video includes farming techniques, the crops which have been destroyed, the Sidhu Moose Wala case update, and many more, but what grabbed our attention was when one of the journalists asked about the update on the Gurbani channel.
Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann requested the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) to permit the broadcast of "Gurbani" at the Golden Temple on various communication platforms. He further stated that his administration is prepared to offer all necessary assistance and cover associated costs. Mann stated that the Golden Temple is prepared to receive cutting-edge broadcast or communication technologies for broadcasting.

But the offer has been rejected by SGPC Chief Advocate Harjinder Singh Dhami. He said that SGPC will launch its own channel as per the direction of Sri Akal Takht Sahib and SGPC can take care of its responsibilities itself. And now, in the recent live, Mann updated and lashed out at SGPC. He says that we gave the offer but SGPC has rejected it. He further added, "SGPC ne keha si asi aap da channel banawange, haje tak ta SGPC aap de aap nu hi banoundi firdi aa, channel ta kede banane."
