IMPHAL, July 17: The two day VII Manipuri Students’ Convention, 2012 concluded today at the Imphal College Multipurpose Hall.
Manipur University Dean Prof N Naba Kumar said one of the main ailments of the present day Manipuri society is corruption.
He elaborated that jobs could be bought like any common commodities in the state. No poor person can get employment in the state.
Students are fighting for the society and the state and as such people should stop lamenting that students should not mix up in politics, he said.
People need to understand the duties of the students and the teachers. The main objective of the teachers should be to provide knowledge about reasoning and thinking to the students.
He further urged that learning by-hard a lesson and appearing for the exam would not be of much help to the students; instead students should understand their lesson.
Parents should also encourage their wards to undergo mental exercise.
Meanwhile, coming to the electricity problem in the state, he said, there is a habit amongst the people of state of using electricity without paying bills.
He continued that if the people of the state continue to understand their responsibilities and duties, then there would have been no problem in the state.
