Bihar to provide 250 acres for AMU in Kishanganj

Aligarh: The Department of Human Resource Development, Government of Bihar has decided to provide 250 acres contiguous land for the establishment of AMU Centre at Kishanganj.

AMU vice Chancellor, Prof. P. K. Abdul Azis has thanked the Chief Minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar for taking a proactive role in the land allotment for the proposed centre.

Prof. Azis has requested the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India to provide the token grant for the Kishanganj centre as well.

The news of the land allotment to AMU in Bihar was received with jubilation by the university community.

It was felt that the allotment of land by the West Bengal, Kerala and Bihar governments vindicates the view that opening of these centres will bring the most deprived and excluded social segment to the mainstream educational fold.

The objective behind the idea of setting up a centre in Bihar is to provide easy access to modern education to the most educationally backward social class so that the national goal of equity, access and inclusion of the excluded is accomplished. It is indeed a national duty bestowed upon AMU to promote education among the Muslims.
