Jamia Millia Islamia Vice-Chancellor Najma Akhtar on Saturday urged the Center to give its approval for setting up a medical college and a nursing college in the city.

The university celebrated its 102nd Foundation Day on Saturday with Union Minister of State for Education Subhas Sarkar addressing the Foundation Day function.

Addressing the participants of the event, Akhtar highlighted the achievements of the university since its inception, saying that JMI has always been about coexistence and patriotism.

“The Jamia has always taught progressiveness, enlightenment and unity in diversity. The university always talks about coexistence and patriotism. We conduct national and international seminars and conferences on nation-building and play a distinctive role in realizing this dream,” said the vice-chancellor.

The university is appealing to the government to give permission to set up a medical college and a nursing college, which is badly needed not only by the people of Delhi but also in its adjoining areas like Noida, Akhtar said.

In his address, Sarkar said that JMI is one of the best universities in the country and congratulated the teaching and non-teaching fraternity, students, alumni and all stakeholders.

“Since its inception, the university has achieved countless milestones that will remain memorable and significant for the nation. I congratulate you all, it is a great honor that the institution has overcome another milestone,” he said.

He said that the students, research staff and faculty members of the Jamia have consistently excelled in studies, teaching, research and other academic activities.
