Aligarh: Amid the breakout of protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2019 by the students of Aligarh Muslim University, as many as 31 students have been hired by a United States based Multi-National-Company Concentrix.

In a recent placement drive in the AMU, organised by the Training and Placement Office (General) of the University, 31 candidates have been selected by the MNC. A total of 110 candidates had appeared in the interview.

The Concentrix has hired the students to work in their insurance, health care, communications and banking services after several rounds of interviews. The students hired are from the Commerce, Humanities, Management and Science streams.

It is to be mentioned that these placements were done while the University campus is witnessing a breakout of protests by the students against the CAB 2019. There have been discussions and conversations inside the campus centered around two words-- Constitution and Secularism. AMU students and Teachers' union has termed the Bill 'Unconstitutional' and damaging to the secular environment of the nation.

The students are demanding the scrapping of the Bill and as stated by the former students' union president, the protests would continue indefinitely and may also reach to the national capital.
