Manipur varsity
authority warned

Revival Demand Committee of the Manipur University Students’ Union (MUSU) has served an ultimatum to the university authority for revival of Students’ body within February 25. This was stated by convenor Th. Suresh of MUSURC during a press meet held this afternoon at the Students’ Home located inside Manipur University Campus Canchipur.
Suresh warned that the committee would go for severe form of agitation if the authority fails to do within the said time frame. “Without a proper student’s platform, the students of the university are hand tied as many issues are coming infront of us like rape and molestation of North East Students in the national capital,” MUSURC said.
It may be mentioned that the agitation with the demand of revival of Student’s Union started from December 9 last year.
