IT News

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.
