RJD create ruckus in Bihar Assembly on AMU campus issue

Charging the NDA government with insincerity on setting up the proposed AMU campus in Bihar`s Kishanganj district, RJD members created ruckus in the state legislative and shouted slogans against the state government.



Patna: Charging the NDA government with
insincerity on setting up the proposed Aligarh Muslim
University (AMU) campus in Bihar`s Kishanganj district, RJD
members today created ruckus in the state legislative and
shouted slogans against the state government.

As soon as the question hour commenced, RJD MLAs
stormed into the well of the state Assembly shouting slogans
against the state government over inordinate delay in setting
up the AMU campus at Kishanganj and alleged that the former
was apathetic towards the minorities` aspiration for higher
education.

The RJD leaders also tried to introduce an adjournment
motion for a threadbare discussion on the AMU campus issue in
the House, but speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary rejected the
demand and asked the opposition members to take their seats to
allow the agendas to be discharged by the House.

The leader of opposition Abdul Bari Siddique too
pleaded with the agitation members to resume their seats upon
which the opposition members stopped slogan shouting and took
their seats.

Earlier, the opposition MLAs had raised slogans
against the state government on the AMU campus issue outside
the gate of the state Assembly even before the commencement of
today`s business.

The proposed AMU campus at Kishanganj aimed at
catering to the higher education needs of minorities, is yet
to begin construction works due to non-allotment of required
land by the state government.
