Panjab University is our heritage, says CM Mann
Amritsar, September 26, 2023: During the Northern Zonal Council meeting, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann raised the issue of Panjab University.
As Haryana raised the issue of giving recognition to its colleges, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann rejected Haryana's demand outright.
Stating that Panjab University is Punjab's heritage, CM Mann claimed that Haryana did not take any recognition for 50 years.
"What circumstances have changed now that there is a need for recognition appeal is that this issue should be considered closed for future also," said CM Mann.
"We eliminated the financial deficit of Panjab University. We increased Grant-in-Aid to Rs 94.13 crores. Central government should also release funds for UGC pay scale.," he added.
