Aligarh: AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi
has assured a delegation of AMU students that he will soon
take up the issue of revival of their union with HRD minister
Kapil Sibal.
The assurance was given by Gandhi when the delegation met
him yesterday to apprise him of its demand for restoration of
the students` union among other issues.

"Rahul has assured us that he will be taking up our matter
for the revival of the AMU students` union with the HRD
Minister very shortly," students` spokesman Mushtaq Ahmed said
today.

Protesting students are on relay hunger strike for about
a fortnight now and have, for the past six days, squatted
outside the Vice-Chancellor`s residence, who has been confined
to a government guest house.
The students are also demanding removal of some
top University officials responsible for rusticating some 150
students who had raised their voice against the
administration.

Meanwhile, in a statement, AMU Vice-Chancellor P K Abdul
Azis urged the agitating students to withdraw the dharna and
said the AMU Students Union will be restored by January 26,
2011.
