Imphal, April 10,
A serious crisis looms in the functioning of the one and only students’ body of Manipur based at New Delhi Manipur Students’ Association Delhi (MASAD) as women executives’ tender resignation over differences between women executives and some top office bearers of the association. The situation gone deeper after another newly appointed advisor Chetnn Khuman tender resignation over the inefficiency of the leadership in resolving the matter.
“ There have been serious issues raised by the women’s executives, advisors and other concerned volunteers about the functioning of the organization since International Women’s day was organized on March 8, 2019. The fight of the organization in the realization of the ideals which we strive for will be for nothing if we failed to address the issues” Chetnn Khuman wrote in his resignation letter to the President of MSAD..
The letter also mentions the sudden dismissal of former advisors as undemocratic as no prior notice was served to them.
“There have been charges that the dismissal was carried out by a few executives without consultation of other members of the executive body. Also, similar charge was given against the nomination of the new advisors, which includes myself, and therefore the nomination unconstitutional”, Khuman stated.
He further said, “Despite suggestions for calling a joint body meeting to first resolve the issues arising out of the way International Women’s day was organized and the issue of the position of the former and the newly nominated advisors before further carrying on the activities, the organization has not responded positively with concern to resolve the matter”.
“In such an undesirable situation, I can’t help but dismiss myself from the position of the ‘so-nominated’ advisor until a joint body meeting is called and the issues above mentioned is resolved democratically and the position of the so-nominated new advisors reaffirmed to create a wholesome environment for the proper functioning of the organization”, Chetnn Khuman wrote.
