Paying heed to repeated requests from All Manipur Recognised Private Schools Welfare Association, Manipur (AMRPSWA), some government schools have started functioning in the state. Attendance was, however, thin as the school taxi services were still not fully operational, reported UNI today. The educational institutions went for a complete shutdown from September 9 last after student organisations began the campaign in support of Apunba Lup’s demand for the resignation of chief minister Okram Ibobi Singh after the July 23 firing in Imphal city in which former militant Ch. Sanjit and a pedestrian, Rabina Devi, were killed in an alleged fake encounter by police commandos. Academic activities were mostly affected in the valley areas of Imphal East, Imphal West, Bishenpur, Thoubal districts. Attacks on educational institutes were being regularly reported from all parts of the state. All Manipur Students Union (AMSU), Manipur Students Federation (MSF) and Kangleipak Students Association (KSA) called for closure of all educational institutes. About 4 lakh school students and 20,000 college goers were studying in the four valley districts. It may be mentioned that a public meet held Nov 15 at Hapta Kangjeibung organised by All Manipur Recognized Private Schools` Welfare Association resolved to resume normal classes in private schools with effect from November 20. The meeting also resolved to set a dateline of November 19 for both the government and agitators demanding justice in the July 23 Khwairamband firing incident to arrive at an understanding and bring an end to the present crisis. The meet also resolved to appeal to the Apunba Lup, JACs and students bodies to announce their decision on relaxing the class boycott stir.
