MU and its authority must have strong stand at any situation. If MU acts at the pressure of vested interested communal forces of Manipur, the future of true Manipuri will be at the mercy of tormentors. The students’ body stand against the decision of academic council should be boycotted by local clubs and Meira Paibi.

The govt of Manipur should not be falling on the line so call tribal students. If they want equitable distribution of opportunity, why should deprive the right to education SC, OBC, General due to large reserve seats of ST which is used just to get scholarship.
