Manipur University Teachers will launch total boycott of vice chancellor

IMPHAL, Oct 29: In continuation of the agitations launched by the Manipur University Teachers’ Association (MUTA), as decided by the body’s executive committee on September 24, 2013 the body will launch total boycott of Prof HNK Sarma, the vice-chancellor from November 1, 2013 as he has failed to fulfil almost all demands of the association such as implementation of HAG scale, appointment of Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Finance Officer, Controller of Examinations, various Directors, filling of faculty positions, etc. as well as non-changing attitude of authoritarian and autocratic style of functioning, conveyed a press statement of MUTA.

No members of MUTA, including, heads, deans, directors and any in-charges will attend any meeting and function called, chaired and hosted by the Vice-Chancellor and no members of MUTA, including heads, deans, directors and any in-charges will invite the vice-chancellor to attend any function or meeting as chief guest, president, or guest of honour, etc during the boycott, it said.

The vice-chancellor, during an executive council (EC) meeting held on October 21, 2013, had made a lot of derogatory remarks against one senior Professor, attempting career assassination, it said.

The press statement further mentioned that the association made serious notice of such act and observed that such comments have tarnished the respectful image of Vice-Chancellor of a Central University. This was unbecoming of a Vice-Chancellor, unacceptable to the University Community, in particular to the MUTA and highly condemnable, it claimed.

MUTA demands an unconditional written apology from the Vice-Chancellor on or before October 31, 2013, it mentioned.
