Lal Bahadur Shastri had attended an event at the AMU as a sitting prime minister in 1964 when he delivered a convocation address.

According to reports, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank will also participate in the event, adding to it, President Ram Nath Kovind is also likely to join the function virtually.

The university based in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh has been in the news over the last year after violent incidents rocked the campus during protests against the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in December 2019.
