A.P. Pandey, the VC of Manipur University” and so on. A silent protest was also held at the place where police barricades the protestors, said Rameshwor.
Appealing to varsity authority to remove Pandey from VC’s post at the earliest, he said the prevailing issue is spoiling the students’ community of the state.
State president of AISF/MSC, Laiphrakpam Karanjit has condemned setting fire of the office of additional director of Sports by some unknown miscreants and stated that it was a plan to tarnish the image of the agitators and to derail the agitation.
He urged the authority concerned to identity those who involved in blemishing the image of students’ union when they are sacrificing their life for welfare of university.
