MUTA to Launch Agitations

IMPHAL, July 2: A press statement of the Manipur University Teachers' Association (MUTA)has said that the association is likely to launch a series of agitation against the University Authority citing manipulation in the selection of three teachers in the 3rd Executive Council of Manipur University, non-appointment of statutory posts such as Pro Vice-Chancellor, Finance Officer, Controller of Examinations as well as other officers such as Director, Academic Staff College; Director, College Development Council, etc. for the last more than two years, non-implementation of HAG scale, long pending scheme for senior professors, non-holding of selection committees for promotion/appointment of faculty members, etc.

“Presently the University is being run on ad-hoc basis centralizing all the powers in an autocratic manner by destroying all the democratic norms, as there are no statutory officers on regular basis except the Registrar. At present, the Vice-Chancellor is also looking after the office of the Finance Officer, Manipur University. And under these circumstances, the general public may allege that there is ample possible room for misappropriation of fund as he himself sanctions and signs cheques as the Finance Officer”, the statement said.

Considering all the facts, MUT A in its general body meeting held on May 28, 2013 took a number of resolutions to implement within some specific datelines, with an endorsement to take any appropriate actions to the Executive Committee, it said.

As a result, the agitations are to be launched in order to streamline the functioning of the University, and for overall healthy growth of this institute of higher learning, it said.
