AMU students end stir after VC promises union elections
Students of the Aligarh Muslim University ended their 78-day long agitation late Sunday after the vice-chancellor gave them an assurance that students union polls would be held in January.
“In a meeting between 14 students and the university administration, it was resolved that election process of the AMU Students’ Union will be started from 3rd January 2011, as already announced,” a statement Monday by the office of Vice Chancellor P.K. Abdul Azis said.
“The election of the students’ union shall be held as per Lyngdoh Committee recommendations and the Supreme Court’s order in letter and spirit,” it added.
The suspension order of five students involved in the sit-in agitation for the polls was also revoked, the statement added.
