Imphal, July 24,
National Students‘ Union of India, Manipur State condemn the Union HRD Ministry and the State Govt. of Manipur at the strongest terms for their High headed and complete negligence towards the 50 days long issue of Manipur University. NSUI Manipur State demands the resignation of VC Adya Prasad Pandey at the earliest and highly supports the movement of Manipur University Student‘s Union (MUSU) MUTA and MUSA.
NSUI Manipur also questions regarding the academic deteriorating conditions in Manipur University which demands a very clear and concrete response from both the State and Central government.
It added that Pandey is not only making the University paralyzed, but also ruined the careers of all the students who already completed their 5th and 6th semester exams in Manipur by keeping the exam results undeclared which leads to step by step hurdles and burdens for the students in their further higher studies both outside and inside the state.
The NSUI also questioned on why the state Govt. is so timid in solving this minor issue.
“What makes them so fear to address the voices of thousands of Students to the concerned authorities at the center when they have their own party at the center. Why they still keep playing such a low level dirty politics just by defending themselves just by making some useless points just to suppress the voices and to divert the real cause of the issue. Why they still busy and buying times keeping the incompetent corrupted VC Pandey in their safest zone when a large no. of students are brutally beaten up mercilessly just for demanding what is right. Why the State BJP govt. plays a blame game to bluff and brainwash the masses to suppress the truth; why they make excuses just by saying Manipur University is a Central University, so, it’s not in their hand to solve this issue? How it’s not in their hand if they have the guts, if they are truly a responsible government? Union HRD Minister Prakash Javedkar visited frequently, several a times at the time of Elections but why he pays deaf and dumb ear at this crucial hours of the state. Why he don’t utter even a single word on this issue being a HRD Minister when the University is shutting down completely for the last 50 days? Not only the University but also all the Colleges of Manipur have shutdown supporting the Student‘s movement demanding the resignation of VC Pandey,” the NSUI asked.
