DNSU asks trade body to revoke resolution on ‘illegal collection’


Dimapur, June 25: The Dimapur Naga Students’ Union (DNSU) has strongly resented the resolutions adopted by the business community under the aegis of Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industries (DCCI), particularly Resolution No. 2 & 4, and demanded the trade body to revoke the two resolutions immediately.
In a press release, DNSU president Sedevilie Angami and general secretary B Mhajan Tsopoe said, “The seditious labelling of the word ‘illegal collection’ to the NGO’s and the students community in particular has tarnished the good image of the genuine ngo’s and students bodies irreparably.”
The DNSU reasoned that seeking financial assistance and contribution by students bodies from well wishers, including business community, for genuine cause of students welfare cannot be termed as illegal collection and “such random defamatory statements made by the DCCI is uncalled for.”
On Resolution No. 4, the DNSU said it is highly questionable. Terming the resolution as an attempt to control the right of the consumers and “encourages business community to practice illegal means,” the DNSU said it will continue to execute its duties by being vigilant on issues that deprives the rights of consumers.
Asking the DCCI to immediately revoke Resolution No 2 & 4, the union warned that it will be compelled to initiate its own course of action if it is not revoked. (Page News Service)
