Imphal, Oct 11: Naga People’s Front (NPF) Manipur State Unit has extended its support to the demand of the Manipur University Tribal Students’ Union (MUTSU) on reservation policy at Manipur University.
The NPF state unit said that the Academic Council of the Manipur University should endorse the Central Educational Institutions Reservation in Admission Amendment Act, 2012 instead of going with the Central Educational Institutions Reservation in Admission Act 2006 which put the quotas for admission of tribal student to 7.5 % despite the fact that 45% of the population is comprised with Tribal people in the state of Manipur.
Speaking to media persons at the Office of NPF Manipur State Unit, Dewhlaland, Awangbou Newmai, President of NPF Manipur State Unit said that the decision of the MU Academic Council to adopt the norms of the Central Educational Institutions Reservation in Admission Act 2006 for the current academic session is highly condemnable.  The decision taken through the Academic Council of MU is totally biased and in violation of the Central Educational Institutions (Reservation in Admission) Amendment Act 2012 and orders of the High Court of Manipur, he added.
Awangbou Newmai also said that Central Educational Institutions (Reservation in Admission) Amendment Act 2012 clearly states that reservation for ST should be 31%, SC 2% and 17% for OBCs based on the population of the State.
Decision of the Academic Council of MU is nothing but suppression of justice and denial of constitutional rights of the tribals who constitutes about 45% of the population of Manipur and who have long been denied their rights and privileges.
Mu Authority Council should revoke their decision immediately and bring the present imbroglio to its logical conclusion, he added.
Awangbou Newmai further said that they are deeply concerned with the prevailing situation in Manipur University regarding the reservation for admission in the university for the students. It is unfortunate that the present crisis is hampering the careers of thousands of students who are looking further study at their desire field in the university, he added.
NPF Manipur State Unit also appeals to all the student organizations and students of the university to avoid any violence, arson and destruction of properties, instead they should try to solved the problem amicably based on truth and Justice.
Meanwhile, Awangbou Newmai states that the current government seems to be of one sided. Under the governance of Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh for 3 terms, the current issues faced by the people state is not the first, the system cannot deny that it is corrupted in case of job recruitments, etc.
NPF strongly condemned the prolonged issues by the state government. The attitude of the Congress Political Party will not bring any development in the society except for more issues.
It is very disappointing to state that even common and small problems are still remains unsolved by the State Government.
Manipur will never be a developed if the current Government continues to rule but development could be bought in the state if the government takes same steps with the people of both Hill and Valley areas.
