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,”
