Chandigarh, November 22

The Aam Aadmi Party today opposed the Union Government’s proposal to abolish senate at Panjab University, Chandigarh.

In a press release, party MLAs Kultar Sandhwa and Jai Krishan Rodi said the move to abolish the senate of region’s oldest university would kill the democratic nature of the heritage institute.

They said under the new education policy, the government was planning to replace the university senate with a board.

They said the state government should have a say in the university affairs as the land for it came after displacing a large number of villages of Punjab.

The Aam Aadmi Party leaders said any such move would deprive state residents of their right to higher education. They said senate and syndicate kept an eye on the functioning of Chancellor of the university, so both bodies were essential to ensuring the democratic character of the university.
