Aligarh : A 200-metre-long Tricolour will be unfurled on the Aligarh Muslim University campus here, a student leader said on Friday.
Aligarh Muslim University Students Union President Mashkoor Usmani said the flag will be hoisted soon at the Duck Point on the campus as part of AMU founder Sir Syed Ahmad Khan’s 200th birth anniversary celebrations.
Earlier in the day, an impressive Republic Day parade was held on the campus where varsity Vice Chancellor Prof Tariq Mansoor took the salute after unfurling the national flag.
“Let the AMU be a catalyst for educational needs of the weaker sections of society. Let us carry forward the message of the varsity founder with renewed vigour and enthusiasm,” he said in his speech.
