Amidst the controversy surrounding over his resumption to duty as vice chancellor of Manipur University, Prof AP Pandey Tuesday rejected the probe panel constituted by Union ministry of home affairs. Addressing a news conference at his official quarter in Imphal, Pandey said that he was ready to face any kind of enquiry from the highest level but would not accept the enquiry committee constituted by the MHRD.

He alleged that the chairman of the committee is a close relative of a member of the agitating teachers’ association of the Manipur University. Mention may be made that following an agreement with the agitating students, teachers and staffs of the MU, MHRD reconstituted the probe panel by appointing retired acting chief justice of Meghalaya High Court justice T Nandakumar with retired VC of Tezpur University of Assam as member.

While the committee was yet to commence its inquiry into the allegations leveled him, Prof AP Pandey resumed his duty as VC of the varsity on September 2 sparking tension among the MU fraternity.

Pandey further claimed that he had received no communication from the Union human resource development ministry regarding his leave and added that he had resumed the office as VC and would not accept any kind of leave by any authority below his rank. 

Pandey who resumed his duty by opening a new office at his official quarter said “I did not receive any orders or communication from the MHRD regarding my leave.” 

However, he added he has information regarding the latest development in the MU through social networking site.
