With students boycotting classes in response to the appeal by various student unions in Manipur, causing a serious academic crisis, an appeal was made to the student unions as well as public of Manipur to review the boycott in the larger interest of all. This was contained in a joint appeal issued by- Linux Manipur; Don Bosco Imphal Alumni; Khoibu Students’ Union, Delhi; Kuki Students’ Organization, Delhi; Naga Students’ Union, Delhi; International Manipuri Progressive Forum, UK; Little Flower Alumni; Manipur Youth Foundation and Zillai Yahoogroups (International). The agitation launched by various organizations in Manipur was in protest against the Ibobi government’s stand over the July __ killing of a youth by Manipur Police commandos. Expressing solidarity with the agitation against the “ongoing state-sponsored terrorism”, the organizations however added that prolonged boycott of class would be counter productive in the long run and project a wrong picture besides even defeating the very purpose of the agitation launched by various organizations in Manipur. The statement also said the prolonged boycott has now made parents,guardians, teachers and general public realise that it acted against the welfare of society especially the students. They also said though student unions were for protection of the rights of students and not to jeopardize them. Accusing the Ibobi government of trying to buy time and doing nothing about the demands of various public organizations, the statement expressed apprehension that this could also result in creating distrust and differences among the public and agitating bodies. They also charged the Ibobi government of doing nothing while the future of thousands of students in Manipur was at stake.
