The politics of divide: Will MU community roll back its stand?

State government effort to end the prolonged agitation by the Manipur University community has failed time and again as the demand by the MU community has not been a major concern for them.
The Manipur University community which comprises of MUSA, MUTA and MUSU want an independent fact finding committee constituted under the commission of enquiry Act 1952 by placing VC AP Pandey either on suspension or by giving him force leave.
The MU Community had placed their unwillingness to cooperate with the fact finding committee as it is not constituted under the Commission of enquiry Act, 1952. The presence of a Retd. High Court judge will have no significance at all but rather appeared as a humiliation to the judiciary of the nation. How could a retd. judge of a reputed High Court be assigned task to head a departmental enquiry which will have no power to even summon the VC which is being alleged of massive financial and administration irregularities.
What is surprising is the sudden organisation of massive protest against the MU community at different places as well as allowing of a mass protest rally against the MU Community in front of the Manipur University gate where the district administration has been imposing prohibition under sec 2 of the CrPC 144.
The other day a peace rally to show solidarity to the MU community by renowned politicians of the state was not allowed to stage on the ground that the DM had imposed probation. It was on that evening that the makeshift platform was vandalised forcing the MU community to shift the protest site inside the MU complex.
The number of protest organised simultaneously at various places showed well organised protest and not the anger of the people. When the MU community began the strike it was the anger which prompted the hold stakeholders to go on strike following the high handedness of the VC AP Pandey.
Earlier it was felt that the centre ignores this part of India but never believe that the son of the soil will voice against the genuine demand of the MU Community.
Instead of understanding the problem and find a way which was already shown and pin pointed, why such a big protest against the MU community has been organised by allowing staging a violent rally at the jurisdiction where the prohibition has been imposed.
The MU Community are not fool, they know how the rally has been organised.
The divide may work in electoral politics , but it won’t in a place like University where people treated as the temple of knowledge.
