Dimapur, May 25 (EMN): Nagaland Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan Teachers’ Association (NSSATA) has announced to relax its second phase agitation with effect from May 26 till further notice from the central team, while it also affirmed that the association would not call off its agitation until ‘justice is delivered.’
NSSATA had initiated two phase agitations from May 2 demanding for 7th ROP in line with regular state employees, inclusion into the state non plan budget and to release the salaries of January 2018 till date with 7th ROP. The association had launched its first phase agitation in the form of pen-down strike followed by second phase in the form of boycotting classes.

While affirming not to call off its agitation until ‘justice is delivered,’ the association has reminded all members to be prepared mentally and physically for initiation of its third phase agitation.
Meanwhile, the association has convened a joint meeting along with all the district units on May 30 at CANSSEA’s office, Kohima, at 11 am. All the district executives are requested to attend the meeting without fail.
