NEW DELHI, JULY 2: As many as heads of seven departments of the Manipur University have resigned from their posts supporting students demand of removal of the Vice-Chancellor.

The students of the University have demanding VC’s ouster form over a month bringing day to day functioning of the varsity to halt. The students have been alleging that the incumbent VC Adya Prasad Pandey has committed administrative and financial irregularities at the university. The University students have been protesting alleging that the VC hardly stays at the university and because of which the university is suffering.

The HoDs have tendered their resignation after the teachers association of the University joined the students last week demanding Pandey’s removal. According to them the agitation which has been going on for over a month should have caused appropriate response from any responsive and responsible governance, in the absence of appropriate action they had to join the general demand of the University community.

The teachers have alleged that the MU has been longing for a VC who knows what a university is, conversant with contemporary dynamics of knowledge-based competition, and above all committed to its upliftment.

On the other hand, Pandey refuting all the allegations levelled against him said that he will not resign from the post despite the disruption caused by the Students Union. He termed all the allegations against him as baseless, malicious and mala-fide.
