We are deeply hurt to read media reports appeared in few newspapers by un-leashing relentless propaganda drive against the GNDU and its Vice-Chancellor at the behest of enemies of the University. Prof. Brar has been blamed for helping Shri P.S. Badal economically in acquiring land for Central Univeristy Bathinda. He has been criticized for vacating a house at Jalandhar belonging to a NRI. In fact Prof. Brar had no role in acquiring land at Bathinda and the house at Jalandhar was vacated under NRI Act. The Building was too small for a College. There was need to create additional infrastructure for expansions of the college which could not has been possible in an old rented Building. There is no justification of grabbing a property of an individual.
The University and its Vice-Chancellor has been blamed her accommodating their favorites, which is totally baseless. He is known for integrity, honesty and fair dealings. The Individuals who’s name has been quoted i.e. Inderbir kaur, R.S. Virk, Dr. Gurprit Kaur and Dr. Sandeep Sharma have been promoted on merit. The principals of various Colleges such as University College Verka, Narot Jamal Singh, Mithra and Chugh Colleges are competent who have been doing excellent job for the last two years. It is strange that the University has been also blamed for creating and building infrastructure at the University and its constituent Colleges and Campuses. GNDU has rended a great service to the rural masses by taking the higher education at the doors of poor uneducated masses in the remote villages of Amritsar, Kartarpur and Taran-tarn Districts. Instead of helping the University to improve the education standard and promotes quality education, a few persons are trying to tarnish image of the GNDU. We request all well-wishers of the University to prevail upon and strongly urge them to desist from any such activity which does not argue well for the University.
