The Hush Post: The name of Dyal Singh college (Evening) will be Vande Matram Dayal Singh College. This has been stated by Amitabh Sinha the Chairman of the college. This despite HRD minister Prakash Javedkar committing otherwise to Harsimrat Badal.
He has said that there are two colleges — the morning college is Dyal Singh College and the evening college is Vande Mataram Dyal Singh Evening College.
He said, contrary to HRD Minister Prakash Javedkar’s statement, the chairman of Dayal Singh College Amitabh Sinha has said that Javedkar should have not dragged himself into the controversy. I stand by my stand that the name of the college shall be Vande Matram Dyal Singh College. “By naming it the way we have, we haven’t disrespected Dyal Singhji and at the sametime pre-fixing Vande Matram goes very well with the name,” said Amitabh Sinha.
Talking about the controversy raised by Harsimrat Badal, he said, “I have worked with Prakashji, if he has reacted negatively to our rechristening the college, I take objection to it.”
Meanwhile, former deputy chief minister of Punjab Sukhbir Badal has called Amitabh Sinha a ‘mental case.’
Earlier, some newspapers had published a false and misleading report of the change of name of Dyal Singh College (Evening). It is hereby clarified that the Delhi University has not changed the name of the Dyal Singh College (Evening),” DU registrar said in a statement.
