On the first day of the stir, students staged a sit-in protest inside the varsity campus. However, the students’ body is yet to decide the future course of stir to be launched pressing the authority to address their demand.

During the protest on Saturday, the students demanded immediate appointment of regular VC  to carry on the administration of the varsity smoothly and save the varsity.

After the removal of Prof AP Pandey, the then VC of the varsity after the protests by students, teachers and non-teaching fraternities, the varsity was run with an administrator appointed by the High Court of Manipur till November 30.
