Fatehgarh Sahib, October 10, 2018: Bir Devinder Singh former Deputy Speaker, while addressing the media persons here today demanded immediate third party audit of the financial bungling in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University (SGGSWU) Fatehgarh Sahib set up by the SGPC dedicated to “Guru Granth Sahib”. Supporting the cause of striking teaching and non teaching staff, who are sitting on dharna from the last six days due to non payment of their salaries, he said that it is unfortunate that the management of the university is not initiating any step seriously to resolve the issue.
He said that he will discuss the issue in the meeting with Dhian Singh Mand Jathedar Akal Takhat appointed by Sarbat Khalsa as Badal family and his loyalist are responsible for this condition of University moreover it is dedicated to “ Guru Granth Sahib”, which the Sikhs can’t tolerate any bad name to University. He alleged that Badal family got recruited many their undeserving supporters from Lambi area in the University resulting in over staff and fiscal wreck.
He alleged that the previous VC in connivance with the then SGPC president worked more as a builder than academician. He hardly devoted any time for academic excellence and developed expensive structure by taking huge loans and employed his own favorites at the cost of SGPC expenditure for personal gains.
He strongly condemned the move of the SGPC president in directing the financial surplus colleges of SGPC to pool money to bail out the fiscal deficit of the university. He said that he will object this move so that other SGPC colleges may not become defunct and it will affect the study.
Meanwhile the strike of teaching and non teaching staff entered into sixth day, who are sitting on dharna for getting their three months salaries. The students have also gone on strike in support of the staff.
