VC responsible for erosion of University autonomy : MUTA
Imphal, August 20 : The Manipur University Teachers Association was holding the Vice Chancellor responsible for the erosion of University autonomy, according to a press release issued by S. Dorendrajit, General Secretary of the Association yesterday. The association charged VC as responsible for inefficient and ineffective administration, unscrupulous finance section, mismanaged exam branch, lack of maintenance and growth of the university library, violation of the provisions of the MOU signed between MUTA and the University on Nov. 13, 2000. The association also took strong exception to the university authorities reports in the media trying to project the teachers' agitation as one focused on the issue of superannuation of the university teachers. The association wished to clarify that the authorities' version is quite misleading and malafide and feels that the administration is deliberately prevaricating to hoodwink the public who is the 'ultimate owner' of the state's only premier institution of higher learning. MUTA will carry on its movement to save the university till a proper resolution is achieved.

Meanwhile, the ongoing strike launched by MUTA demanding the resignation/removal of the Manipur University VC entered the 7th day on August 20, 2001.
