Chandigarh – Senior SAD leader and Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal has urged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to waive GST on ingredients used to make ‘langars’ in gurdwaras. In her April 26 letter to the PM, Harsimrat said she hopes that the religious institutions serving free ‘langar’ will be exempted from the central Goods and Services Tax (GST).Meanwhile, Harsimrat Kaur Badal also requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to sack Dayal Singh College governing council chairman Amitabh Sinha for going against the undertaking of HRD Ministry that the name of Dayal Singh College, Delhi will not be changed. Badal, who briefed the Prime Minister on this issue, said despite a written assurance by HRD Minister Prakash Javedkar on January 16 this year that the name of the college will not be changed, its management deliberately inflamed the sentiments of the Sikh community by putting up banners changing the name of the college to Vande Matram Dayal Singh College at its annual prize distribution function on April 25. She said Amitabh Sinha was deliberately misusing the name Vande Matram at the cost of destroying the legacy of noted philanthropist Dayal Singh Majithia who was a social reformer and had donated all his wealth for public welfare.
