The 85-day agitation by Members of Manipur University Students’ Union (MUSU), Manipur University Teachers’ Association (MUTA) and Manipur University Staffs’ Association (MUSA) demanding the removal of the Vice-Chancellor Prof. Adiya Prasad Pandey had paralysed functioning of the Manipur University. The agitation ended recently and pro-Vice-Chancellor Y Yogendra Singh, appointed by suspended Vice-Chancellor Pandey, entered the university complex on Thursday evening.
It is to be mentioned that due to a long-drawn agitation against Prof Adya Prasad Pandey by the students and teachers in the university campus, the university was in a state of turmoil and the Ministry of Human Resource Development had suspended by issuing an order on September 17 till the completion of the inquiry against him.
