Speaking to media persons, Chief Minister N. Biren Singh said that the State Government fully empathise with the Manipuri University community. He said that as per the wish of the MUTA, MUSU and MUSA, the State government persuaded the Central Government to form a Committee headed by a retired Chief Justice of a High Court to investigate the allegations against the Vice-Chancellor Prof. AP Pandey. If the Prof. Pandey is found to be guilty in the investigation, then he will be ousted automatically, he added.
Chief Minister mentioned that as Manipur University is a Central University, the State government has certain limitations.

We have also met the Governor Dr. Najma Heptulla yesterday and apprised the situation.
