HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar today in the Rajya Sabha said that decision to change name of an evening college was not the government’s decision and has now been put on hold.

Naren Gujral said that the word Vande Mataram raises patriotic feelings in the hearts of Indians and Government should make Vande Mataram Universities across the country, “But to change the name of a minority institution is a direct assault on the feelings of Sikhs.I feel this is something to be condemned,”

Responding to this,Prakash Javadekar said the renaming was not the decision of the central government.

“Is not a government’s decision and the government does not like it. That’s why we have asked that the decision be withheld forthwith and an immediate meeting be convened.We don’t like it and such a thing will not happen” the Minister said adding that the Delhi University has also been informed about the same.
