Aligarh (UP), June 17 (PTI) AMU Vice-Chancellor P K Abdul Azis today said a President-appointed committee to look into complaints of financial irregularities against him will submit its report soon and expressed confidence that it will "absolve" him of all the charges. "Let the truth come out. Since there has never been any misappropriation of funds during my tenure, the committee will make things clear and absolve me of all the charges," Azis, who completed three years in office on June 11, said. President Pratibha Patil, in her capacity as the visitor of the University, had constituted the two-member committee earlier this year to probe allegations against Azis as well as the counter-allegations against the complainants. Asked on the recent controversy over installation of 72 CCTVs on the AMU campus, Azis said, "they are installed to monitor undesirable elements on the campus and also to keep an eye on those elements trying to disturb academic atmosphere of the campus. There is no question of harassing any student." On the developments in the educational front, he said the AMU has signed 25 MoUs with prestigious foreign universities in US wherein teachers, students and research scholars would be exchanged in pursuit of academic excellence. The Vice-Chancellor said 500 computers have been installed with high speed internet connectivity at University hostels and departments of studies under the Information and Communication Technology expansion programme. Five Special AMU Centres for imparting education in different parts of country were being set up at Malappuram in Kerala, Murshidabad in West Bengal, Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, Pune in Maharashtra and Kishanganj in Bihar to cater to the students particularly belonging to the minority community. Initially two of these centres which have been approved by the President of India in her capacity of Visitor of the University, would start functioning in Malappuram, Kerala and Murshidabad in West Bengal and would start five year BALLB and two year MBA courses from the academic session 2010-11, he said. The Vice Chancellor said that twenty departments of AMU have been getting special grant from University Grants Commission in recognition of their excellent achievements. PTI CORR.
