The 85-day long agitation at Manipur University was called off Thursday by the protesters in the interest of students, Manipur University Students’ Union president M Dayaman Singh said.

The students of the university had been demanding the removal of Vice-Chancellor A P Pandey and constitution of an Independent Enquiry Committee to look into the allegations of administrative and financial lapses against the V-C.

The agitation was called off in the interest of students and particularly after the HRD ministry agreed to all the terms included in the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signed on August 16, Singh said.

The Manipur University Teachers’ Association and the Manipur University Students’ Union said it was for the authorities to decide when the classes would resume in the varsity.

State Governor Dr Najma Heptulla expressed her happiness in the reopening which was remained close since May 30 after Manipur University Students’ Union (MUSU) agitated against the vice chancellor.

The Governor on twitter wrote, “I congratulate Manipur University Students’ Union (MUSU), Manipur University Teachers’ Association (MUTA) and Manipur University Staff Association (MUSA) for suspending their strike and helping bringing normalcy in the campus.”

To mark the re-opening of the university, the administrative block of the university which remained locked was today opened by the president of MUSU in the presence of officials of the university with leaders of some civil society organizations as witnesses. 

Earlier, the president unlocked the main gate of the university.

Classes also resumed in the campus with large number of students attending their respective classes.
