Imphal, July 7,
Manipur University Teachers’ Association (MUTA) strongly condemns the police action to the democratic and peaceful protest by college students in front of the CM’s gate today. An emergency meeting of the MUTA held today in the aftermath of the police action to students resolved to demand an immediate magisterial enquiry. The meeting also resolved not to attend meeting with the Chief Minister today. The invitation was sent yesterday by the Secretary to the Chief Minister.
A press statement by Prof. I. Tomba Singh president, MUTA said that the association strongly condemns the inhuman act of the security forces on the democratic and peaceful protest of the students.
“While the teaching Community stand fully behind the students in their legitimate demand for removal of Prof. A P Pandey from VCship, MUTA demands that an immediate Magisterial Enquiry should be instituted to enquire into the unbridled violence inflicted on the democratic and law-abiding students”, the statement said.
The statement said the 39 days long agitation by all constituents of the Manipur University demanding removal of the irresponsible VC has been peaceful and democratic. Today too students took to the office of the Chief Minister to submit memorandum. Instead of listening to the peaceful pleas of students, the state force have unleashed a reign of terror on the students, and thereby causing serious injury and hospitalisation.
