Road map for reopening AMU this week: VC
The AMU was shut down indefinitely on Saturday following clashes between two groups of students that left 12 of them injured.
Aligarh: Noting that any major disruption
in the examination schedule will damage the career prospects
of students, AMU Vice Chancellor Prof P K Abdul Azis on Tuesday
said that a road map for reopening of the varsity will be
announced this week.
He also said that a high level enquiry will be
conducted into the violence.
The AMU was shut down indefinitely on Saturday
following clashes between two groups of students that left 12
of them injured.
"I am fully aware that any major disruption in the
examination schedule will lead to incalculable damage to the
career prospects of a large number of students. It is my
earnest endeavour to work out a revised examination schedule
to safeguard the interests of our students," Azis said.
Azis said that the University had already decided that
all entrance examinations for different courses would be held
as per original schedule.
The VC said that 98 per cent of hostels have been
vacated by yesterday evening and the entire process was
carried out in a peaceful manner.
Referring to the allegation that some factions within
the varsity administration were deeply involved in the ongoing
regional politics within the student community, Azis said that
he had received some reports to this effect.
"I plan to institute a high level time bound enquiry
by some eminent and impartial persons into the incidents of
April 29. If any member of my administration is found guilty
of any lapse then he will not be spared," he said.
When asked why University administration has not
lodged an FIR yet, Prof Azis said that a report would be
lodged soon and the guilty would be identified with the help
of the CCTV cameras.
"There was nothing illegal in the procedure of closing
the University," the VC said, adding that after students
union elections certain "disgruntled and mischievous elements"
became active in the campus.
"These elements took advantage of the restoration of
democratic right at the campus and started flexing their
muscle power. Last week`s violence was fallout of such
disruptive elements," he said.
