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.
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
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.
