Hyderabad, November 30:

The Maulana Azad National Urdu University Friday paid rich tributes to former prime minister Inder Kumar Gujral, who was also its first chancellor, saying he had left an "indelible mark" on the institution.

Vice-Chancellor Mohammad Miyan described Gujral, who passed away Friday, as a true representative of Urdu language and culture. "He left indelible mark during the formative stages of this university," he said in his condolence message.

Gujral was appointed as first chancellor of the university on May 24, 1999. He inaugurated the administrative block of the university campus here on Dec 28, 2002.

"Mr Gujral was an avid lover of Urdu language. He was appointed as the Chairman of Gujral Committee in the 1970s. The committee was envisaged the task of finding means and ways to promote the Urdu language and to provide adequate facilities for Urdu speaking people in educational, cultural and administrative matters."

Mohammad Miyan recalled that the recommendations of Gujral Committee provided the base to ponder over establishing a national Urdu university.

Gujral will long be remembered as a seasoned diplomat, articulate speaker and a true champion of the masses. MANUU owes a lot to this inspiring personality, he added.
