The Dal Khalsa activists, who have been opposing the attempt of Khalsa College Governing Council (KCGC) of setting up of Khalsa University ever since it conceived the plan in 2011, has once again opposed the move and have advised the council to set up the proposed university in Jalandhar, instead.

Dal Khalsa’s youth wing ‘Sikh Youth of Punjab’ was of the view that if the KCGC management did so, all opposition and fears would be put to rest.

Party spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh said, “As per my knowledge, the Khalsa College Governing Council has around 100 acres of land in Jalandhar, which fulfils the requirement of setting up a professional university.”

He also warned the KCGC management that they should not overlook certain aspects that had generated controversy and raised eye-brows against its decision. “Even if the management thinks that Khalsa University is need of the hour, the management should come up with a plan that does not create controversies or suspicion,” said Singh.
