Whether Civil offices or educational institutions run by the central government have been entrusted power not to follow holiday list prepared by the State government, has not been defined at any of the service book or guidelines, but the Manipur University which is now a Central University under the Ministry of Human Resource and Development has converted state holiday to restricted holiday.

Patriot’s Day, observed every year by the Government of Manipur as a mark of tribute to Martyrs of the erstwhile kingdom by declaring as state holiday besides organizing main state function at Sahid Minar and by paying tribute at Hicham Yaicham Pat as well as at Kangla where Bir Tikendrajit and Thangal General were cremated.

Interestingly annual calendar published for this year by the Manipur University printed the 13th of August i.e, the Patriot’s Day as Restricted Holiday.

If the printed date – 13th August that is the Patriots’ Day is an erroneous mistake then the University authority should clarify at the earliest possible time. Had not the University authority makes any clarification regarding the matter then it will become an open secret that the Manipur University authority has no respect for the Government of Manipur.

It may be noted that the Manipur Calendar 2020 published by the Directorate of Information & Public Relations, Government of Manipur declared the Patriots’ Day as state holiday at serial number 16 of the Holiday list.
