Punjab Govt’s anti-education policies led to financial crisis in Punjabi University: AAP’s Cheema

Monday, 23 November 2020 | PNS | Chandigarh

It is a matter of grave concern that the universities, which have on them the onus of producing intellectuals, scientists and young leaders to steer the State of Punjab are facing an acute crisis of financial nature,” said AAP MLAs,

including the Leader of Opposition Harpal Singh Cheema and Prof Baljinder Kaur on Sunday.

AAP leaders said that the resignation tendered by the Punjabi University Vice-Chancellor recently out of frustration over the Government policies, is ample proof that the State Government is not at all bothered about the well being of Educational institutions.

AAP leaders demanded from the Punjab Governor, who is the Chancellor of the Punjabi University, to intervene in the matter and rid the institution of great repute of its financial woes since.

“Punjabi University is one of the two universities in the entire world which have been named after a language.

It has contributed a lot towards the propagation of Punjabi language bestowed by the Guru Sahiban and even in this techno savvy era, the University is rendering yeoman’s service for the mother tongue,” they said.

It is indeed a matter of regret that the University, situated at the place which is the home district of Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and represented by his wife Preneet Kaur in the Parliament, is crying for attention, added Cheema and Prof Baljinder Kaur.
