Contribution

  Contribution of S. Atma Singh Ji    
  S. Atma Singh Ji, who represented this political constituency a number of times, rendered an exemplary service to this area for bringing many development projects to this area. His main contribution was for the cause of education. It was because of his tireless efforts that Sultanpur Lodhi attained the status of Nankana Sahib, the birth place of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and left in Pakistan after partition. It  was with his missionary service, dedication and devotion that Nankana Sahib Khalsa School was started in 1954. This school was among the chosen few which have the teacher training classes also. In the quincentury  celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev ji, Guru Nanak Khalsa College was started in 1969. Later on, Guru Harkrishan Public School was also started in 1981.These institutions changed the economic scene of this backward and flood-prone area by producing students who got employment in many public and private sectors and also started their own businesses or entrepreneurships.  The people of this backward area will always remain indebted to S.Atma Singh and his family for rendering  yeoman’s service for the development of this segment.

This rendering of service continued after S.Atma Singh’s demise by his two daughters Bibi Surjit Kaur(Retired D.E.O.) and Dr.Upinderjit Kaur (The Education, Language Vigilance, Justice and Civil Aviation Minister, Former Finance Minister).Later on Bibi Gurpreet Kaur(Ruhi) and her husband Er.Swarn Singh have also joined to steer the institutions on the strong footing.
     
 

Role of Founder Principal S. Gurdip Singh

 
 

In the realization of  Nankana Sahib Khalsa High School and Sri Guru Harkrishan Public Senior Secondary School, the Founder Principal of Guru Nanak Khalsa College, S.Gurdeep Singh (Son-in-law of S.Atma Singh Ji) played a crucially important role. With strong educational background, S.Gurdeep Singh has done Teacher Training from Michigan University, U.S.A. Undoubtedly, he has the unusual vision. When Commerce faculty was started in1976.this was the only college having this stream in this region. He provided a strong infra-structure to all these institutions by adopting a far-reaching and visionary policy. With his visionary caliber he was able to strike a venture with Punjab Govt. in the establishment of a big stadium which has proved an asset for the youth of the area. The stadium also provides a secure and suitable venue for the big functions when VIPs visit this historic and religiously important town, which is quite often.

     
 

Contribution of  Dr. Upinderjit Kaur

 
 

Dr. Upinderjit Kaur took the reigns of the college as a Principal in1995 but then she joined the active politics and was elected M.L.A. Sultanpur Lodhi, the constituency her father represented many a time. Being the Vice-President of the College Managing Committee she has proved a substantial help in creating financial sources for the institutions. She is ever trying to bring ground-breaking changes in the development of Sultanpur Lodhi and particularly for the educational institutions. It is because of her goodwill gestures that Guru Nanak Khalsa College is rejuvenating in construction and reconstruction. Being Education Minister,Finance Minister, Punjab, her concerns were broadly visionary.
