New Delhi, May 26 (PTI) The Delhi University's Academic Council on Friday passed a resolution to set up a Centre for Independence and Partition Studies, officials confirmed.

The centre will facilitate research on the "high voltage politics" accompanying the country's Partition and how the then central leadership failed to contain the "germs of separatism", they said.

It will also focus on the "non-insistence of central leadership on having the Frontier Province with India" and the way the "Congress Working Committee consented to the Partition without consulting (Mahatma) Gandhi", according to the documents.
