AMU like varsity in Assam: Dr Sarma


An Aligarh Muslim University-like varsity is likely to be set up in Assam. But the Centre must approve the proposal Dispur sent to Delhi recently.


Disclosing this on the floor of the Assam Assembly on Tuesday, education minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the proposal was made to Union Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal recently during his visit to Delhi. If the proposal is given the go-ahead, Assam would have a university on the lines of Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Millia, which have been granted the status of minority university.
