Give us AMU centre: Girl students of Malegaon demand on Women's Day

Malegaon: “Sir, like girls in other parts of the country, we also wish to seek higher education. But, since we don’t have any such opportunity here in Malegaon our dreams may shatter. In AMU’s sub-centre, we see our dream of higher education coming true. Hence, we request you to take an early and positive decision on our proposal so that the AMU centre in Malegaon becomes a reality”, hundreds of students – mostly the girls, had written to the AMU VC Prof PK Abdul Azis in September.


This moving appeal was followed by the strong support and cooperation extended to the AMU VC by Nasik MP Samir Bhujbal. The result is that the AMU team led by Prof PK Abdul Azis and comprising deans of five faculties are visiting the district today.


The AMU team's visit to the town has also excited the district administrative officers led by District Magistrate P Velrasu, who is extending all supports for the establishment of the AMU sub centre in the region.

However, the biggest question is, will the AMU team really initiate the much needed change long due for the region?

“Prima-facie we have a very strong case. Moreover, if we go by the motive with which the AMU is establishing its centres in five states, Malegaon is the best deserving place in Maharashtra. We have a fact-sheet to back this claim”, Bhujbal said hoping that the AMU team would surely decide in his favour.

The motive behind the establishment of the AMU sub center according to the VC is to provide opportunities to the deprived and marginalized sections of the society in remote areas to help them catch up with the lost avenues.

But, in the present scenario, it seems that Bhujbal will need a bit more to fight and prove his point. For, after a consistent effort of three years when everything looked all right and in favor of Malegaon, suddenly people from other areas too have started demanding to establish the centre in their areas.

“For the last three years, no district except Nasik responded to the state government’s repeated pleas to provide the land for the purpose. Now, when Malegaon successfully done the complete paper work, entire Maharashtra is ready to offer lands”, wondered Razee Anwer, Gen Secretary of Noble Education & Welfare Society (NEWS).

The AMU on its part is keeping everyone guessing. Rumours mill also began rolling when amid the euphoria in Malegaon, the AMU decided on the request of Minister of State for Primary Education Mrs. Fauzia Khan to inspect simultaneously with Malegaon two locations near Aurangabad to see if they are better options.


This sudden change of mind sent shock ways for the people in Nasik district. Against this backdrop, it would be interesting to see how they convince the AMU team. Till then we can only pray that this Diwali brings the historic moment Malegaon is waiting for since last more than sixty years.
