Correspondent IMPHAL, Jul 24 | Publish Date: 7/24/2018 11:59:26 PM IST
Despite police crackdown, agitations by students demanding immediate removal of vice-chancellor of Manipur University continue unabated.
On Tuesday, after police foiled a bid to storm the fortified chief minister’s bungalow in the morning, students of various colleges affiliated to Manipur University carried out a rally demanding immediate declaration of results of Three-year Degree Course (TDC) conducted by the university and removal of the controversial VC.
While alleging that the impasse in the university has put the academic careers of the college students at stake, the agitators demanded that the crisis be “resolved immediately so that the pending exam results can be declared at the earliest.”
While blaming VC Prof AP Pandey’s ‘inefficiency’ behind the prevailing crisis in the MU, they demanded immediate removal of the VC in order to save the academic careers of the students.
Mention may be made that the results of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th Semester exams of TDC conducted by the Manipur University are yet to be declared following the prevailing imbroglio in the university.
Earlier in the day, police also foiled a bid to storm chief minister’s bungalow by a group of students demanding removal of the VC. The students were pushed back by the police before reaching the chief minister’s bungalow. 
However, four representatives of the students were allowed to proceed and meet the state education minister Th Radheshyam. The student leaders urged the education minister to ensure declaration of the pending result of exams of the six semesters of TDC. 
The minister assured that the issue would be resolved at the earliest by consulting the chief minister.
