The Manipur government has asked all educational institutes in the state to start opening from December 21 in the interest of the students. As part of the stir protesting fake encounter killings in the state, educational institutes remained closed since September 9. However, the student bodies of the state, All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU), Manipuri Students Federation (MSF) and Kangleipak Students Association (KSA) stated that right to life was more important than right to education and the stir would continue. With the academic calendar, almost coming to an end the fate of over four lakh students remained hanging in uncertainty. In Manipur, the academic calendar ends by December, reported UNI. M Harekrishna, Additional Secretary, Education Department (School Section), said efforts were made to facilitate resumption of classes. Action would be taken up against those institutes which do not open, he warned. The representatives of the private institutes informed that most of the institutes were opened. However, the students were not attending classes. Officials said most government institutes, especially in the city and hill areas, were functioning properly. Meanwhile, Manipur Police today sent about a hundred non-locals to the camp at Dharmashala with a view to ensuring their security in the wake of killing of two migrant workers on December 16. Police personnel were also patrolling the passenger bus service counters to ensure safety of the non-locals. SSP, Imphal West, L Kailun appealed to all migrant workers to remain confined in the city areas to protect themselves from attacks by unknown miscreants, reported UNI. Barber shops, bakeries, mostly run by migrant workers, were still open and normal activities were on in other areas where non-locals work, like dairy and housework.
