The Manipur Students’ Federation (MSF), as a part of its 24th foundation day on Thursday, took a collective stand to give its best service for the overall development of the education sector in Manipur.
The celebration was held at its headquarter in Kwakeithel of Imphal West with the hoisting the MSF flag and releasing a commemorative flag with balloons and observing two minutes silent salutation for the departed souls of MSF.
Speaking to the media on the sidelines of the formal programme, MSF president Khangembam Bidyasagar highlighted the various initiatives taken up by MSF in the interest and welfare of the people of Manipur since its establishment, especially for the students community.
The president said that MSF is committed to continue its "School Faghathansi" mission for bringing a better education system in the society and its routine campaign against drug menace.
Apart from the education sector, MSF will continue to extend its services for the well-being of the people of Manipur and will be taking the frontal role in any issue related with the state’s interest, he added.
Regarding the upcoming rationalisation process of posting for government teachers, he drew the attention of the government for proceeding it in a transparent and unbiased manner, to give equal and quality education to all.
Concerning the defiance of the new school timings by many private schools, Bidyasagar informed that MSF will start monitoring such schools and initiate disciplinary action against those schools who defy the government order.
