ATSUM Reiterates

IMPHAL, Jan 27: Stating that federating units of All Manipur Students’ Union, Manipur (ATSUM) are aggrieved over the alleged State Government’s indifference in contravention to the wishes of the hill people, ATSUM has asserted that the Cabinet decision of the Government of Manipur without any rationality and justification and against the recommendation of the HAC for deputing Senior MSC officers as Executive Director of DRDA has been stiffly opposed by the people of the five hill districts.

In a statement, the student body said that the non-accomplishment of Reservation Rules is construe as an insult to the Act as well as of the deserving communities in question and repeated appeals and persuasion to this issue has failed to pinch the Government till date to complete the legitimate urge.

Observing that introduction of the new Academic Calendar of the State due to mere closure of schools in the valley district is not acceptable, the student body made it clear that the hills will not follow the New academic calendar under any circumstances and the only option for the Government is to review the order at the earliest or follow different academic calendar in the hills.

The recruitment of SOs in MSRRDA in total contravention to the conventional practice of the State Government regarding reservation is not acceptable to the tribal people.

The reply of the concerned Minister‘s lack of logic and we condemned in the highest level. Either the Government filled up the post which are due to the tribal or terminate the whole process and recruit new SOs with proper presentation of the tribals, the student body asserted.

The student body has also threatened to launch different form of democratic agitation from February 1 if all these long pending issues were not amicably addressed and realized by the Government.
