NGOs, students bodies to be evicted from campus of educational institutes

Imphal, Jun 1: An emergency meeting of the state Cabinet held this evening chaired by chief minister O Ibobi Singh at his official bungalow has approved the eviction of all offices of NGOs and students organisations from inside the campus of government offices and government run educational institutions in the state.
A source quoting a senior Cabinet minister said the decision for vacating the offices of the NGOs and students organisations was taken by the state Cabinet in its meeting held this evening at 4 pm as a part of toning up the law and order in the state to prevent any untoward incidents inside government offices and government run educational institutions.
The official source further mentioned that the NGOs and students organisations, mainly those not registered and recognised by the state government, would be given 15 days prior notice to vacate their respective offices. Failure to comply with the notice would invite action from the state authorities, for which the state DGP has been entrusted the responsibility, it said.
It may be mentioned that the state administration as well as educational atmosphere in the state has been in turmoil following the killing of Manipur University professor Md Islamuddin inside the MU campus recently. The decision to carry out evictions comes in the light of these events, the source added. (IFP)
