So call anti-Manipur student bodies known by ATSUM and MUTSU are flexing muscle to press for reservation in Central University as per their convenience. Such students bodies also be boycotted by local of Manipur University until they withdraw unlawful undemocratic agitation holding people of Manipur at ransom.

L B Devi, your comment stating ATSUM and MUTSU as anti-Manipur student is an anti harmonous comment. You just keep mum. Whatever they do that maybe none of your communal business. Everyone can do whatever they like but not disturb other’s liberty. They did what they deserve to do. They are unhappy with the change. They have some possibility to be granted what they ask but not your ILP and ST Demand. If you get ST status you will live under them if not you will create more problem.

A. Panmei, your exercise of liberty affect the stomach of poor people of Manipur is not your business? Do you ever support any movement for common interest of Manipur? Right from demand of Naga integration to Kuki State demand, don’t you think it is anti-Manipur? If you stick to your demand, be stick to your point rather than running to get all sort of benefit from Manipur again. So, all the local Meira Paibi near Manipur University and Clubs should boycott ATSUM and MUTSU till they withdraw their agitation.
