Govt should restart fellowship of students belonging to minorities: SGPC Chief Dhami writes to PM Modi

Amritsar, February 4, 2023 (Yes Punjab News)
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has demanded from the Government of India to resume scholarships given to minority students.

SGPC President Harjinder Singh Dhami has written a letter to the Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi. It is notable that students belonging to minority communities were given scholarships by the Government of India under the Maulana Azad National Fellowship and Pre-Matric Scholarship, which has been discontinued since last year.

On this issue, SGPC President Harjinder Singh Dhami has asked the government to reconsider its decision. Seeking intervention of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, SGPC President has said that a large number of students will be affected by the closure of this scholarship scheme which was being given for a long time in the country.

“Depriving students belonging to minority communities of this fellowship for research work and studies is extremely unfortunate. Such schemes prove to be very effective for the progress of the country, but it is not in the interest of the country for the government to deliberately ignore the minorities.

If the government’s working style towards the minorities remains the same, it will surely create indifference and distrust towards the government. Therefore, the government should consider resuming these fellowships related to the minorities, so that the people’s faith in the government remains”, said Harjinder Singh.

SGPC President appealed to the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to restart the closed scholarship.
