BHU

The 'pancha loha' statue is the tallest statue of the leader in the country. Over 200 artisans have worked for almost a year in order to complete the structure.

PM Modi will flag off the Mahakaal Express to link Varanasi, Ujjain and Omkareshwar, and dedicate Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Memorial Centre to the nation.

The sit-in protests which were going on in BHU for over a month ended on Tuesday following the resignation of Dr Firoz Khan as an assistant professor in the faculty of Sanskrit Vidya Dharma Vigyan (SVDV) department.

On November 24, the faculty members and the retired professors of the BHU had expressed their support for the students who are protesting against the appointment of Firoz as an assistant professor of Sanskrit at the Sanskrit Vidya Dharm Vigyaan department (faculty of theology).

The agitating students say that the protest is not against the appointment of a Muslim professor, but the appointment of a non-Hindu in a subject closely connected with the religion.
