After reports that Irani insulted Shah at the meeting held in her office with Chandy, the AMU VC today issued a statement seeking to clear the air over the controversy.
    
"It would take a lot to humiliate a veteran of the Longewala Battle of 1971, who spent the better part of his 40 years in the army fighting insurgencies in Punjab and North-East India and dousing communal passions in various riots.
    
"There have been several reports in the press and social media about a meeting with the HRD Minister on January 9. It is regrettable that these leaked reports are meant to create controversy and tarnish AMU's image," he said in the statement.
