Imphal, Aug 10,
Spokesperson of the Joint Tribal Student Bodies, Manipur, Thangtinlen Haokip in a press statement said the 48 Hours general strike launch by All Tribal Students’ Union Manipur (ATSUM), Kuki Students’ Organization, General Headquarters (KSO-GHQ) and All Naga Students’ Association Manipur (ANSAM) for resolving the Manipur University imbroglio is too late. The body in a statement still support Manipur University VC AP Pandey which the whole MU community is demanding for removal from the VC post, saying that the question of the removal of the present VC Pandey is simply unacceptable.
It may be mentioned that ATSUM, ANSAM and the KSO-GHQ is serious about restoring the academic atmosphere of the state to normalcy but as far as the allegation on AP Pandey is concerned the three student body stay away. The 48 hour bandh is being called for opening of the Manipur University. The three body says nothing about allegations against Prof. AP Pandey.
