ASU says ENSF demand for 45% job reservation is ‘entirely and absolutely unacceptable’
Dimapur, Nov. 29 (EMN): Opposing the demand by Eastern Naga Students’ Union (ENSF) for 45% job reservation under Nagaland Staff Selection Board, the Angami Student’s Union (ASU) has termed the former’s demand “totally unreasonable, unfair, selfish and arrogant”.
In a statement issued on Sunday, the ASU asserted it was totally against the demand.
“It is entirely and absolutely unacceptable. In any case, such a detrimental factor cannot be allowed to be implemented. Such destructive policy would destroy our very fragile society,” the statement read.
Further, the union asserted that it would resort to every possible democratic action to prevent the implementation of the ENSF’s demand by the government.
“No coercive force should decide the fate of our people in any case. It is our desire to ensure that no one should be suppressed and the other should not be denied of merit. Human civilisation has evolved with time, situation and reality. No civilisation evolved overnight.
“Naga society is still in the process of developing evolution since the inception of education by the American missionaries in the 18th century. Some evolved late, others later as part of the undeniable truth of life. In this context, it is imperative to assert that reservation and quota among our people is a useless measure and required to be done away with and dumped in the waste bin for good,” it stated.
