Punjabi University has decided to change the name of its South Campus at Bathinda which was restructured recently in June. The university had clubbed its three centres— Punjabi University Guru Kashi Campus Damdama Sahib, Yadavindra College of Engineering and University School of Business Studies at Talwandi Sabo— under the name Punjabi University Patiala South Campus. The decision has been taken after a ruckus was created at the campus over its name on the university VC’s visit there on Monday. The outsiders who raised a number of demands also attempted to ‘gherao’ the VC.

The VC had paid a visit to South Campus over administrative matters. “Outsiders reached the site and created a ruckus”, an official said.

In a video that went viral, the VC was also seen explaining to the protesters that the name of the campus was decided after its officials sent the university administration a proposal for the same.

When contacted VC Arvind said some people had been trying to create a ruckus over various matters. “Now they raised the issue of religion in the campus’s name. Our original idea of restructuring was not the change of name but restructuring of departments and courses for better functioning and output for students. Now after a discussion with Jathedar Gurdwara Damdama Sahib, we have decided to rename the South Campus as Punjabi University Guru Kashi Campus, Damdama Sahib (Talwandi Sabo).”

He added that the restructuring of departments, colleges and courses, as was done recently, is not being changed.
