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.

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.
