They held placards that read “We Want Teachers” and chanted slogans “No Teacher, No Class”, “No Class, No Exam”.The demonstration took place at the Mon district headquarters with participation of Konyak and Mon Town Students’ Unions. Today’s issue was a reminder to the government to fulfill Niathu agreement and TET related matter. The demonstration was held peacefully.
The procession started from the premises of KSU office and culminated at the office of Deputy Commissioner, Mon. Additional Deputy Commissioner Mon gave assurance to the gathering to apprise the higher authorities concerned regarding the matter.
Earlier, ENSF general secretary Honang Jess said the government teachers who were transferred out along with the posts from the four districts of Tuensang, Mon, Kiphire and Longleng to other districts should be transferred back to the four districts immediately, in keeping with the assurance given by the government at Niathu Resort agreement earlier. He further said no new policies should affect the Niathu Resort agreement and whatever demands were submitted to the government earlier by the ENSF should be fulfilled in toto.

Allow govt schools to function: ANSTA

The All Nagaland School Teachers Association (ANSTA) has appealed to ENSF to exempt government schools from purview of its agitation and allow these schools under its jurisdiction to function as normal.
Sharing the genuine grievances of ENSF, the ANSTA appealed them to exempt government schools whether GPS/GMS/GHS/GHSS from the purview of its agitation for sake of the students.
It reasoned that final examination/fourth quarterly assessment is drawing very near for which every single working day is countable. Therefore, the students must attend their classes, it said.
On the ongoing agitation of Khiamniugan Students Union against transfer of science teacher alongwith post from GHS Chiphur, the Association questioned the wisdom of department authority and wondered how could the concerned science teacher of GHS Chiphur be transferred out alongwith post that when the government has banned the policy of transfer alongwith post. It requested the responsible authority to address the issue on priority basis and enable GHS Chiphur to resume the classes immediately as the school was closed down since Tuesday in view of KSU agitation, according to a release issued by ANSTA president Ponchulo Wanth, general secretary P Vashum and treasurer Temjenyapang.
