told reporters.The minister had earlier this month informed Parliament that the college's plan to rename the college to 'Vande Mataram Mahavidyalya' was
not approved by the government and that the college had been asked to put the decision on hold.Prakash Javadekar had last week met Delhi University
Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi and the Chairman of Dyal Singh College, and advised them to think of a name for the evening college of the institution,
which reflects Dyal Singh Majithia's legacy.
