Dimapur, Aug. 13 (EMN): It would appear that a directive from the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has prompted a damage-control directive from the state’s Home department.

In an order issued to all the deputy commissioners in Nagaland on Tuesday, the Commissioner of Nagaland, M Patton stated that the government of Nagaland has taken notice of a statement from the NSF directing its federating units to hoist the ‘Naga flag’ on the occasion on ‘Naga Independence Day’ on August 14.

According to the order, this directive from the NSF is bound to create unwanted situation “and may lead to grievous law and order problem.”

The commissioner directed all the DCs to convene a meeting with the student body units in their respective jurisdiction “and make them aware about the legality of their action and maintain constant communication so that the laid down norms are not violated in any manner.”

The DCs were further directed to depute a senior administrative officer in their respective jurisdiction to report on the entire situation.
