Ruckus in Maharashtra assembly over auditor's report

Mumbai: Amin Patel, senior Congress legislator in the Maharashtra Assembly and Chairman of Maulana Azad Corporation on Monday demanded that the government should speed up the land allotment process for the proposed Aligrah Muslim University (AMU) centre in the state.


"The government should speed up the process of land allotment to the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) so that the proposed off campus centre is established as early as possible", he demanded in the state Assembly on Monday.


"There are two locations - Malegaon and Khuldabad which were visited by the AMU authorities for the proposed centre. The government should immediately allot whichever land is suitable so that the centre is established in the state", he urged.


A high level delegation led by then AMU VC Prof PK Abdul Azis had visited Malegaon and Khuldabad on October 26, 2011 to inspect the land for the proposed AM centre in Maharashtra. Later, the AMU forwarded its inspection report to the state government. A decision on the matter is pending since then. 


Amin Patel also wanted to know from the government about the status of the proposed polytechnic institutes in the minority concentrated areas.


"The government had decided to establish polytechnics in Malegaon and Bhiwandi. But nothing concrete has been done in this regard so far. The government should speed up establishment of these institutes", he said.


Amin Patel also demanded funds for the Madrasas.


"The way the government is giving grant to schools, grant should be given to Madrasas also", he demanded.


Taking note of these demands, Minister of Minority Development Department Arif Naseem Khan proposed a grant of two lakh for the Madrasas.


"The government is giving special grant of two lakh each to the schools for basic infrastructure. Similar grant will also be given to Madrasas", he proposed.


However, Arif Naseem Khan, who is accused of playing politics on the AMU off campus centre in Maharashtra, did not say anything on the land allotment to the AMU for the purpose.
