The rift between khalsa college governing council chief Satyajit Majithia and CM captain amarinder singh increased day by day. Because captain amarinder singh denied to meet him on this matter. Satyajit singh majithia made many attempts to meet him through close contacts, but all in vain.
There was a time when majithia and captain’s families are quietly close to each other. Even they used to live in Amarinder’s residence New Moti Bagh palace. When satyajit took over as the chief of Khalsa College governing council in 2004, Captain Amarinder Singh was the chief minister of Punjab that time.
Actually Mr. satyajit wants to explain his position on Khalsa university. Majithia said, “ yes, I really want to meet Punjab CM on this matter and explain him that there is nothing wrong by opening Khalsa University.”
He further warned the political leaders not to play politics over the issue.
“I can’t understand why and how heritage of Khalsa College gets affected with the university,” said Satyajit. And even being a non-political being I never promote and interfere in my son’s Bikram Majithia, daughter Harsimrat badal and son-in-law Sukhbir singh badal constituencies.
Whereas CM Captain Amarinder Singh already cleared that Khalsa College is a part of our great heritage and history not the private property of the Majithias.
It was in 1892 that Satyajit’s grandfather Sundar Singh Majithia took the initiative to open Khalsa College in Amritsar by collecting donations from royal families (including that of Amarinder’s), other well-to-do Sikhs of the time and contributing from his own pocket.
Terming the Khalsa University Act 2016 that mandated opening of the Khalsa University as ‘controversial’, the state cabinet on April 19 scraped the Act “to save the 125-year-old institution. Khalsa University came into existence in 2016 by way of an Act.
Satyajit Majithia also stated that if Captain Amarinder Singh agrees to meet me, it’s good, otherwise , the records (of Khalsa University) are with the state government and CM can scrutinise them to make a judgment on his own.”
