New Delhi, Oct 16 (UNI) The differences between a section of the Executive Council of the Aligarh Muslim University and its Vice Chancellor Prof P K Abdul Azis have deepened with some dissident members threatening to ''expose corruption'' in the university administration.

The immediate issue that has irked the Executive Council is the way the steering committee constituted for organising the World AMU Alumni Meet was functioning.

Four of the six EC Members, including former MP Wasim Ahmad, who had been appointed to the steering committee, have resigned from it.

Mr Ahmad said here the Vice Chancellor had made it impossible for the committee to function in a democratic manner.

In a letter to the Vice Chancellor, the four members--Wasim Ahmad, Prof Habiburrehman, Ahteshamurraheem Khan and Khursheed Ahmad Khan-- have said ''the manner in which the steering committee is functioning is violating the very purpose for which it was constituted, constraining us to dissociate with all its activities in the larger interest of the University.'' Mr Ahmad told UNI today that they would soon call a national convention of all those concerned with AMU to address issues of corruption and inefficiency which were all evident in the functioning of the University.
