AMU starts Murshidabad campus
Kolkata: The Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) Sunday started classes from its Murshidabad campus in West Bengal with the first set of students for two-year MBA and five-year law programmes.
"From today (Sunday) classes for the two-year MBA programme and the five-year B.A.(LLB) programmes have started," said P.K. Abdul Aziz, the AMU vice chancellor.
"Right now the classes are going on in a rented two-storied building as the campus is not yet ready," said Aziz.
Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee has allotted Rs.50 crore for the Murshidabad campus in the union budget for 2011-12.
West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and Mukherjee last year laid the foundation stone of the campus. Mukherjee is the Lok Sabha MP from Jangipur constituency which is part of Murshidabad district.
