Dimapur, November 14: Ahead of the proposed sit-in protest spearheaded by ACAUT, Public Service Aspirants of Nagaland (PSAN) and Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC) at New Secretariat Junction in Kohima demanding implementation of Lokayukta in Nagaland, the Angami Public Organization (APO) has reiterated and reaffirmed that no sort of protest, agitation or disruption shall be allowed to be held under its jurisdiction.

Earlier the ACAUT had appealed to the APO to exempt the Public Co-ordination Committee (PCC) spearheading the agitation from the purview of the APO ban since the sit-in protest will be solely confined to the New Secretariat Complex.

APO vice president, K T Vilie said the organization reaffirmation of the declaration is made with no ill will against any genuine demands made by various organizations.

"This declaration is made for the health of our ailing society to at least take a short break this festive season. There are many issues and concerns which require to be addressed by the Government. A tired physical body also needs rest. Our society is tired. It needs rest and get refreshed," he said in a press release. 

The APO emphasized that most students are on the verge of their final examinations, and whose career and life can never be compromised under any circumstances. APO said it is important that the students are provided a peaceful environment for their lesson preparations and examinations for which it entrusted the Angami Students Union (ASU) to oversee the wellbeing of all students. 

For the convenience and smooth conduct of the upcoming festivals, the APO also detailed the Angami Youth Organization (AYO) to initiate necessary measures so that preparations and the festivities are not disrupted in any manner. 

"The APO once again trust that good sense shall prevail in our society and perhaps through this peaceful break, free of any forms of agitation, this season would provide us an opportunity to reflect on our commitments and responsibilities that we all have to individually and collectively shoulder," it added.
