Imphal, April 15,
Rebel group Maoist Communist Party today warned the office bearers of the Manipur University Teachers’ Association (MUTA) , Manipur University Students’ Union and the research scholars of the University to refrain from joining in the contract works for construction of the University’s infrastructures. The outfit also appealed other rebel/arm group not to force and threaten the teaching community for awarding of contract works in the Manipur University as well as at any colleges and educational institution of the state. On the Private schools, the outfit said that it would not interfere to any action to the owner of private schools earning money from the people but said the Maoist will not remain silent if the teaching community of the private school are made scapegoat.
The statement of the Manipur Maoist said that the outfit is ready for protection of the intellectual rights and said that no kind of pressure from any groups should be given to the students, teachers and research scholars of the University. The Maoist also said that this is the last warning for those in the academic circle of the university to stay away from joining the contract works for construction of infrastructures.
The Maoist further said that the division seen in the university among the students and teaching community is reflected to the society. It also criticise the movement of the MUSU saying that it is going to the wrong direction. As the MUSU now seem to a place for power hunters of getting contract work. At the moment the student union of the Manipur is now a union without any movement. The outfit further appeal to all not to disturb the academic atmosphere of Manipur University due to clash for contract works among different groups.
