Kohima, Oct. 18 (EMN):
The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) and the Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) have suspended their proposed statewide restriction on movement of ‘all NL 11 and NL 10 registered vehicles’.

The late night reversal of the two federations’ previous stoic stance came following the state government’

s reported assurance to fulfil the student bodies’ demand.

In a joint press statement, NSF president Ninoto Awomi and ENSF president Sepili Sangtam, announced that the state government, through a notification issued on October 18, has “met our demand to streamline the SSA-RMSA teachers of 2010 and 2013 batches within 18 months without any conditions whatsoever”.

The NSF and ENSF had set out on a joint journey ‘to ensure that the plight of a large section of the teaching community within the state of Nagaland is taken due notice and affirmatively addressed by the government of Nagaland’, it stated.

They also expressed appreciation to leaders of the federating units and subordinate bodies ‘and the entire Naga populace who stood together for the cause’.

They also further expressed gratitude to the state government ‘for the positive actions taken in the interest of the teaching community’.

Currently, Nagaland is reported to have an excess of around 11,000 government teachers.
