The name of Government Degree College, Hyderpora was changed in a name change ceremony chaired by the director of the institution.

Several local residents and seniors attended the event along with college staff.

The college was renamed in honor of the eminent poet, writer, folklorist, researcher Moti Lal Saqi as instructed by the government decree.

Speaking on the occasion, the principal shed light on the life of Moti Lal Saqi and pointed out that Saqi’s contribution as a literary critic is impressive, his work on Sheikh Nur-ud-Din Wali (RAH) and the Sufi poets like Samad Mir is monumental.

The principal also described Saqi as a folklorist and argued that his five-volume compilation of Kashmiri folk songs suggests his love for Kashmir and a great contribution to the Kashmiri literary paradigm.

Residents and prominent people attending the event praised the movement and saw the change as a cultural revival of Kashmir and praised the institution’s efforts to mark this change.

The ceremony ended with the vote of thanks from Professor Rakshanda Lateef. (GNS)
