    Tarlochan: Sikh leaders should focus on education

    Patiala, December 30
    Tarlochan Singh, Member of Rajya Sabha from Haryana, today flayed the role of the Sikh leadership in not giving proper guidance to Sikhs.

    While talking on the sidelines of the convocation of Punjabi University, in which he participated yesterday, Tarlochan Singh said Sikh leaders raised trivial issues for debate and ignored important issues like employment etc.

    During his tenure as the chairman of the National Commission of Minorities, Tarlochan Singh said, he had followed up with the Centre the issue of grant of scholarships to Sikhs and other minority students.

    Tarlochan Singh further said the Centre had sanctioned a grant worth Rs 4.57 crore for students belonging to the minority communities like Sikhs, Buddhists and Muslims under the scheme of scholarships on merit-cum-means basis.

    He added that under this scheme, the students would be reimbursed the fee paid for pursuing professional courses.
    The Sikh leaders should take up important issues like education and employment whereas other issues should be taken up on a secondary basis, he added.

    The need of the hour is to providing better education and job avenues in the competitive era, Member of Rajya SabhaTarlochan Singh said.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
