Lucknow: The Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) has received a proposal from the Assam government to open its centre in the state, officials said Thursday.
Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has requested the human resource development (HRD) ministry to take necessary steps in this regard, the sources said.
“We have been invited by the government of Assam for setting up an AMU centre there,” AMU vice-chancellor P.K. Abdul Azis told IANS over telephone.
The central government-funded AMU has received Rs.25 crore each for setting up its centre in West Bengal and Kerala and has plans to set up branches in Bihar, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, officials said.
In Bihar, the government has provided free-of-cost, 250-acre land for the upcoming AMU centre in Muslim-dominated Kishanganj district, they added.
According to Azis, the idea behind setting up special centres is to provide the most educationally deprived social class easy access to modern education.
