New Delhi, December 20, 2020
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the centenary celebrations of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) on December 22 via video conferencing.
The Prime Minister will also release a postal stamp during the event, an official press relase said.
Chancellor of the University Syedna Mufaddal Saifudin and Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank will also be present on the occasion, it said.
AMU became a University in 1920, through an Act of Indian Legislative Council by elevating the Mohammedan Anglo Oriental (MAO) College to the status of a Central University. MAO College was set up in 1877 by Sir Syed Ahmad Khan.
The university has a campus spread over 467.6 hectares of land in the city of Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh. It also has three off-campus centres in Malappuram (Kerala), Murshidabad-Jangipur (West Bengal) and Kishanganj (Bihar).
