Six student organisations in Manipur staged a sit-in protest at Keishampat Leimajam leikai community hall in Imphal Monday.
The entrance exam for admission to the university for the academic session 2020-2021 is starting from September 23.
Manipur Education Minister Dr Th Radheshyam informed that the examinations are also being conducted offline.
The student bodies, however, warned of resuming intense forms of agitations from September 26 if the state government delayed the demands of the tribal students.
The failure to implement 7th UGC pay in the state has a negative impact on the higher education of the state.
Claiming that lockdown is not a final solution for combating COVID-19, the student bodies appealed to the state government to conduct awareness on how to live along with the virus.
