A day after the Secular Progressive Front (SPF) Legislature Party appealed for a concerted effort to make all the schools, colleges and Manipur University resume normal classes from Monday (November 9), the All Manipur Students’ Guardian Organization also called upon the parents and guardians to sent their wards to school without fear while pressing government to ensure security of the students. Mention may be made that a meeting of the Secular Progressive Front Legislature Party was held yesterday evening at the official bungalow of the Chief Minister, O Ibobi after a long deliberation on the matter arising out of the ongoing class boycott stir launched by three students’ organizations in support of agitation spearheaded by the Apunba Lup. Two months was completed today since students did not attend classes due to the indefinite class boycott stir effective from September 9. Even though some students’ bodies and civil organizations which were against the class boycott stir attempted to resume class in the last few days, most of the schools remained closed. Welcoming the decision of the Secular Progressive Front legislature, members of the All Manipur Students’ Guardian Organisation Sunday called upon the parents and guardians to send their wards to schools from tomorrow without any fear of untoward incidents happening to the students. The Organisation’s Advisor, Kulla asked parents and guardians to be courageous in sending their wards adding “Let’s confront and overcome the hurdle. Students involvement in politic is wrong in the conflict riddled state like Manipur.” He also appealed the government to ensure security of the students turning up school. The Secular Progressive Front during their meeting yesterday had decided to take up appropriate precautionary measures to ensure that the resumption of normal classes was not disturbed by providing security. Spokesperson of the Secular Progressive Front in a statement appealed the agitating bodies not to cause any disturbance but to cooperate with the government in bringing an amicable solution to the deadlock. It was stated that the government was trying to bring an amicable solution with the agitating Apunba Lup and Joint Action Committees formed in connection with the July 23 shooting incident.
