Manipur University issue rocks both outside and inside State Assembly
Opposition MLAs question if VC Pandey is indispensible
Ongoing impasse at Manipur University which put academic activities to a grinding halt for 54 days on Tuesday not only rocked the state assembly session but also normalcy in and around Manipur State Assembly was put to a war like zone as student protestors along with local supporters confronted police personnel at many place of Thangmeiband area.
Inside the ongoing State Assembly session Congress MLAs K Govindas and K Ranjit move a calling attention motion regarding the issue and plead the Speaker of the house to convert it as a short duration discussion so that a resolution may be adopted to pressurise the center over the demand of the Manipur University Community which is supported by various civil society organisations of the state, be submitted to the central government.
Speaker of the house Y Khemchand denied the plea and appealed the two MLAs to continue as Calling attention motion.
