M.U. is not situated in the tribal inhabited area – S. Bhubol

Manipur University is neither situated in the tribal inhabited area nor in the 6th Schedule area and so the Joint Committee of the Sixteen Clubs of Thongju Part-I and Part-II strongly refutes any form of misinterpretation and manipulation in the Central Educational Institutions (Reservation in Admission), Act,2006 and its Amendment Act, 2012 .
But unfortunately irresponsible statement liable to cause unwanted situation is found artfully highlighted in the Manipur University official letter written by Prof. N. Lokendrajit, Former Registrar of this University to the Governor of Manipur bearing No.MU/6/14/2008 dated the 23rd July,2014 in connection with the Charter of Demands submitted by the so called Manipur University Tribal Students’ Union. Manipur University being a Central University should strictly follow the norms of reservation as specified by the UGC under the enacting Central Educational Institution ( Reservation in Admission) Amendment Act,2012 and if any demand as local adjustment is arisen, that should be equally beneficial to all the students of all the inhabiting brethren communities in the state and there should not give a place of sectarian outlook in it. All the Manipur Communities irrespective of hill and valley locations are truly indigenous people that have been living together for hundreds of years with a common history since the state formative period of 33AD. It is time for all sections of the Manipuri society to continue living with equitable shares of all available opportunities instead of indulging into Tug-of War like attitudes to gobbling things in the name of quota or reservation without thinking of other brother communities. The so named as Tribals branded by the Constitution of India should actually learn to live away from any act of tribalism as they are no more tribal at all. The Reservation Amendment Act. 2012 clearly defines  “specified north-eastern region” as the ‘areas comprising of States of Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and the tribal areas of Assam referred to in the sixth Schedule to the Constitution’ and in this regard Manipur University is not located either in the tribal  area or the sixth schedule and so any kind of reservation policy based on such connotation misinterpreting the mother contents cannot be accepted by the localities who are really proud of having this  university and felt of having responsibility to keep its peaceful and progressive functioning. The former, registrar, the Deans and the EC members of the university who were having nexus in the making of such chaotic situation should be booked and rebutted for their intellectual poverty for tarnishing the image of the university and the Joint Committee with the support of all surrounding localities will extend fullest cooperation at any areas that might usher in progressive venture of the university.

According to this letter which send by fromer registrar . He send this letter in 23 june 2014 . In this day a meeting is held with head and deans , without showing any kind of calculation in that meeting and he send the letter to the govener of manipur in this day again. This so that the calculation is doing himself in his own. In this story the VC of MU may join as a little knowledge but all are done by Registrar. Again in the resolution of head and deans meeting the mu authority cannot follow in the resolution again the resolution will be discuss in acadamic coucil of mu. Acadamic council is higher than the other and mu should follow in the acadamic council resolution.

Before sending the letter , university officers (VC & Registrar) should place the acts for threadbare discuss on the table of Academic council , which is sole authority to take a decision for academic matters. So, there may be some hidden agenda . Let us save Manipur as a whole and think the human resource for future . If such things happened, we all need co-operation for growth of the state and university. Please cooperate and let us make a university of future. But unfortunately , a press released by the university on 02.06.2016 may please be commented and reacted for right or wrong.
