Jangipur: President Pranab Mukherjee yesterday inaugurated a campus of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) in West Bengal’s Murshidabad district

Speaking on the occasion, the president said the university would serve students from the region who have been going to AMU in Uttar Pradesh because of its academic excellence.

Refering to Sir Syed Ahmad Khan’s remarks while laying the foundation stone of the Muhammadan Anglo Oriental College — now known as AMU — that the seed would mature into mighty tree from whose roots would sprout saplings, Mukherjee said: “The AMU Murshidabad Centre is a true example of the sapling that has sprouted to extend education.”
