Imphal, Jan 9

All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU) today warns serious agitation over inaction of the government to the agreement reached between the two sides in connection with the establishment of DM University.
“Since the establishment of DM University the government still has not appoint any regular Vice Chancellor (VC), Dean and never filled vacant post teaching and non teaching staffs”, Bruce Pebam, HRD Secretary of AMSU told media persons today at AMSU head quarters.
He said that undergraduate students of the colleges affiliated to DM University are having tough time as the syllabus that they are studying now fails to get approval due to non existence of Academic Council. Exams are not conducted on time and results of the examination are also kept pending. Because of this there are several drawbacks in applying scholarship either under the state or central government including the UGC. Bruce also said that notification for undergoing PHD to students issued on October last year remain meaningless as nothing has been taken up for converting it into action.
“Earlier too we have submitted memorandums to the government to field all required staffs, regular dean  and vice chancellor besides installations of all required equipments that is necessary for running a University and after reaching an agreement with the Education Minister we had suspended agitation”, Bruce said adding that as the government had failed to fulfill our demand even after two years and as the career of the under graduate students under the DM University is at risk, the AMSU along with other students’ unions of colleges affiliated to DM University – DM Arts, Science, Commerce and GP Women college will left with no choice but to launch a, intense but democratic agitation.
