Dimapur, February 6: The Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) has expressed resentment at the ‘cold response’ from the State Government and the School Education Department to its representation on ‘relaxation policy’.
In a press release, ENSF said it had on December 18 last submitted a representation for relaxation policy vide government notification Nos. EDS(A)-5/2002 dated 4th January 2008, 10th March 2008, 28th March and 27th October 2008 for relaxation to obtain the professional qualification for those candidates belonging to six tribes.
“The relaxation which came into force on 9th January 2009 for a period of ten years with a subject, to review either for extension or discontinuance,” it said.
The federation lamented that since then there has been no response from the Government as well from the DoSE. It questioned the State Government and the concerned department that even after all these years not a single B.Ed institution had been set up in the entire jurisdiction of Eastern Nagaland.
Asking the concerned department to recognize the importance of setting up B.Ed institution, it strongly demanded that adequate B.Ed college must be introduced in the districts of Eastern Nagaland. “Moreover those existing institutions cannot accommodate all those candidates seeking for admission so the only alternative is for extension of the relaxation policy,” it said.
In order to avoid further complications, the federation said it anticipates the State Government and the department to take stock of the situation and address its representation on topmost priority at the earliest.
