Govt would restore AMU's minority character: PM

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today said his Government would restore the minority character of the Aligarh Mulsim University (AMU) affected by the recent Allahbad High Court judgement.

Dr Singh was replying to a question at his second formal press conference here as to what would be the government’s next step in the wake of the court order.

He said the minority character as delineated in the 1981 Act had been affected by the High Court order, but the Government e was working to find what method should be adopted to revert to the situation prevailing before the court judgement.

”We are trying to find what methods should be adopted to return to the AMU its character as guaranteed in the 1981 Act,” he said
