Faculties of arts, social sciences, international studies and theology, polytechnics and Community College will start left over examinations from February 3,” he added through a press statement issued by the public relations office of AMU.
Meanwhile, students continued with their protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act on the campus on Monday. Girl students of Abdullah College of AMU moved with placards, black balloons and raised ‘azadi’ slogans to voice protest.
AMU students also staged a ‘Black Coat and Tiranga’ march to oppose CAA, NPR and NRC.
