Haryana House passes resolution, wants share in Panjab University restored
The Haryana Vidhan Sabha Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution recommending the government to seek restoration of the state’s share in Panjab University, Chandigarh.
The non-official resolution was moved by Congress MLA Geeta Bhukkal on the second day of the ongoing monsoon session.
“As we know that Haryana state’s share in PU was granted under the Punjab Reorganisation Act, 1966, and colleges and regional centre of Haryana were affiliated to PU. Presently, Haryana has no share in the PU. Haryana government should submit a request before the Chancellor of the PU, that is India’s Vice President, for the affiliation of colleges and granting the due share to Haryana by amending rule to restore the state’s share in PU,” read the resolution.
Bhukkal said, “Although there was a demand being raised by the faculty members of the University seeking a Central University status, but the MHRD has recently clarified that PU will not be made a Central university”.
Bhukkal also pointed out that the matter pertaining to PU’s status is already pending under consideration with the union government and also in the courts of law, but Haryana government should take it up at the highest level of the Chancellor (Vice-President of India). She also added that Haryana should also make provision in its budget to bail PU out of the financial crunch.
