Kohima, Oct. 18 (EMN):
The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) and the Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) will resume their agitation on Monday, with regard to their demand of mainstreaming SSA and RMSA teachers of 2010 and 2013 batches.

A joint directive was issued on Sunday, informing all the leaders and federating units and sub-ordinate bodies of NSF and ENSF that the indefinite restriction on movement of ‘all NL-10 and NL-11 registered vehicles’ shall resume from October 19, at 6 am. ]

They have also requested the unit leaders to put in place all necessary arrangements in order to ensure that the agitation is strictly enforced in their respective jurisdictions.

However, vehicles on duty for medical services, administration and police, Fire and Emergency Services, Power, high court and postal duties, Home Guards, Civil Defence and SDRF are exempt from the purview of the agitation.

They had earlier asserted in a press briefing that as long as the government does not give any time-bound assurance, “just saying they will resolve the issue at the earliest, we felt the government will drag the issue indefinitely”.

Awomi reminded that seizing the car keys of the defaulters still stands and those seized vehicles will be released only after their demand is met.

The two bodies started their agitation on October 12, but due to the sudden demise of former minister CM Chang, the agitation had been suspended till October 18.

KT Sukhalu, Advisor for School Education, on October 16, has also appealed to the two bodies to reconsider their postponed agitation from October 19, stating that “it is it is not a simple task of just signing a piece of paper, but massive exercise had to be undertaken by the department”; and that the government will continue to work to bring the issue to a logical conclusion ‘where justice will not be denied’.

He also stated that in view of the circumstances, the government cannot give the time frame for implementing the proposal but “you may be assured that the decision of the government will definitely be implemented”.
