Imphal, June 24 (NENA): The Manipur University Students’ Union (MUSU) today decried “campus militarisation” and pledged to renew its long pending demand for de- militarisation of the institute’ s campus on Saturday . ”Security personnel manning the varsity’ s main gate check all students in entering the campus while military troops enter and exit the campus at their own will,” MUSU president Buchi Mayanglambam told media. He said that the over 30-year- old demand of de-militarisation of the campus by students has remained futile till date. There is one Assam Rifles military post inside the MU campus. “W e do not want the presence of military elements inside the MU campus. MUSU and other social organisations have been demanding removal of troops from the campus for the last 30 years” he added. Buchi pledged to renew and intensify the decades-old demand for removal of military troops from the campus. He said there should be a de- militarisation of the campus at the earliest. Students said they have the feeling of entering a military zone when they see armoured vehicles and army personnel roaming around with weapons in their hands inside the MU campus. Buchi appealed to the civil society bodies, student unions and people residing in and around the varsity to extend all possible support in their demand for forbidding military in the campus. Non-cooperation stir against VC threatened The MUSU president BUchi also expressed unhappiness over the alleged academic negligence of the new Vice Chancellor of the institute. He also said that although the university is centralised, it has not yet been featured in the top 100 universities of the country . Buchi blamed the VC for not having been able to feature MU in the top 100 list in which the neighbouring states of Mizoram and Assam universities have already been included.
