A chair named after a 'dehdhari' guru at a university named after the found of Sikh religion Guru Nanak Dev announced by a panthic government!

Badal also addressed a congregation organized by Namdhari Darbar. He was accompanied by Charanjit Singh Atwal, deputy Speaker of the Lok Sabha, whose son has recently tasted defeat in Assembly elections. A press release officially issued by the government said Badal paid : "his gratitude to Sri Satguru Jagjit Singh Ji for extending his blessings and support to the SAD-BJP during the recent elections in Punjab."
