listen to the news

A resolution against the central government’s efforts to grant Central University status to the Punjab University of Chandigarh was passed by a voice vote in the Punjab Assembly on Thursday amid protests by the two BJP MPs. In addition to ruling party Aam Aadmi, Congress, Akali Dal and independent members also supported the proposal. This resolution passed in the assembly will now be sent to the central government for consideration. Deputies said the Punjab University is the legacy of the Punjab.

In presenting the resolution to the House, the Minister of Higher Education and Languages, Gurmeet Singh Meet Hare, said the attempt to snatch PU from the Punjab by giving it central university status is worrying. He said that when Indo-Pak split, even though it was the formation of two countries for other states in the country, but a million Punjabis lost their lives in that partition. Not only were lives lost, but so was our historical heritage and so was the University of Punjab, established in Lahore in 1882.

After the partition, a new campus of Punjab University in Hoshiarpur was built. He was later taken to Chandigarh. Meet Hare said Punjab and UT have been giving money to Punjab University since 1976, when Himachal and Haryana retired from the stake. Punjab has right over Punjab University, Chandigarh and water.

The University of Punjab has been created by destroying the peoples of Punjab, so how can we give it to the Center. The center will not be able to change the face of Punjab University. Supporting the resolution, AAP MLA Budhram said Punjab University is a problem of our heritage. He mentioned the history of this university and said that the British had made this the fourth university in the country.

In early 1857 three universities were established in Calcutta, Bombay and Madras. At the time of the establishment of the University of Punjab, there were 53 colleges in Delhi, Peshawar, Sialkot, Bahawalpur, Kashmir, Jammu, Dharamsala, Rohtak and Shimla. This university that came to Chandigarh after the partition has a rich history. Efforts are now being made to snatch this historical heritage from the Punjab.

BJP MP Jangilal Mahajan opposed the proposal, there was no need to present a resolution to the House as there is no proposal from the central government. This issue has arisen in the High Court over the case of a teacher, which has not been answered by the Punjab government. BJP agrees that the University of Punjab belongs to the Punjab, but the Punjab government is not fulfilling its duty.

Ashwini Sharma of BJP also said there was no need for the proposal. There is no proposal from the Central Government to create a Central University. He said the Congress government did not address the matter forcefully before the High Court, so this dispute has arisen. Sukhpal Khaira and Pargat Singh of Congress supported the resolution. Khaira alleged that the central government wants to take the Punjab University from the Punjab, in the same way that UT Chandigarh employees have been separated from the Punjab by giving central salary scales. Pargat has said Congress is with the government on this proposal.

I said it in the proposal
The resolution said Punjab University is state heritage and is a matter of Punjabi survival. The House is concerned about attempts by some selfish elements to change the status of Punjab University to Central University under one pretext or another. The House considers that this Punjab university was revived after independence with a law: the Punjab Universities Act of 1947 and, thereafter, section 72 (1) of the Punjab Reorganization Act of 1966 enacted by Parliament at the time of the reorganization of the State of Punjab in 1966.) was declared an interstate institution.

More than 175 schools in Punjab, located in Fazilka, Ferozepur, Hoshiarpur, Ludhiana, Moga, Muktsar and SBS Nagar districts, are currently affiliated with Punjab University. Its entire area and population are mainly in the Punjab. Punjab University occupies an emotional place in the minds of Punjabis for historical, regional and cultural reasons.

Haryana and Himachal Pradesh stopped paying their share of 20 to 20% of the maintenance deficit grants to the university, but the state of Punjab has increased its share from 20% to 40% and is being paid continuously since 1976.. Apart from this, 100 million rupees (i.e. a total of 140 million rupees) is given to this university every year from the Punjab colleges.

Any decision to change the appearance of Punjab University will not be acceptable to the people of Punjab and therefore the government of India should not make any change in the nature and character of this university. Any proposal under consideration must be canceled with immediate effect.
