Imphal, March 30,
The Manipur University Teachers’ Association (MUTA) expressed strong condemnation to the statement made by the spokesperson and MP candidate of BJP, Dr. RK Ranjan on a local TV channel on 20th March 2019 regarding Report of the Inquiry committee against Prof A.P. Pandey.
A statement by MUTA said that it has been learned that the Inquiry Committee has submitted the report to the Manipur High Court under seal and therefore the report remains under seal till date in the High Court. Moreover, the case regarding Prof A.P Pandey is pending in the High Court of Manipur.
However, Dr. RK Ranjan has said in public that he knew the findings of the report and he claimed that according to the inquiry committee report, Prof A.P Pandey is innocent, the statement added.
The Manipur University Students’ Union (MUSU) has also demanded an apology from Dr. RK Ranjan on the issue before the public. However, Dr. RK Ranjan has not apologised to Manipur University Community till date.
Some members of the Association participated in the academic discussion with Rahul Gandhi on 20th March 2019 after receiving the invitation. In the discussion, MUTA members put questions to Rahul Gandhi on the issues of improvement of the Higher Education in Manipur, and Economy of the Country and North East Region in particular. The Association will participate in such academic discussion in future with any person or party if invited in the interest of the general public.
The statement made by the MP candidate of BJP has caused apprehension in the public that the Government is doing all means to save Prof AP Pandey. Therefore, the Association demands Dr. RK Ranjan to clarify within three days how he knows the report of the Inquiry Committee which is still under seal in the High Court.
