ENSF serves ultimatum to Nagaland CM
DIMAPUR, FEBRUARY 24: The Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) has served an ultimatum to Nagaland Chief Minister giving 30 days time to address the genuine demands placed by the Federation.
In an ultimatum to the Chief Minister, the ENSF stated that the Nagaland Staff Selection Board 2020 does not serve the interest of aspirants across the State in its present form and that the Federation has advocated to pursue the discontentment by submitting numerous representations and ultimatums ever since the first draft contents on NSSB was rolled out.
The Federation said there is an apprehension that if the NSSB has to function as per the present draft modalities, it would not serve any purpose and that the dreams of the aspirants would be hampered drastically and the very motive for constituting the NSSB would be defeated even before it starts functioning.
Accordingly, the Federation has submitted numerous representations entailing the common interest of Nagas whereby it was reiterated time and again to include all the exempted Departments and posts under NSSB ambit without any exceptions, it mentioned
The ‘ultimatum’ signed by ENSF president, Chingmak Chang and assistant general secretary, Kaibo Konyak further stated that the Cabinet Sub-Committee formed to expedite the process has generated nothing and has lukewarm result.
“Inspite of the Federation’s firm stand against the NSSB in its present form, the P&AR Department came up with the advertisement for the post of Chairman and Member of NSSB superseding and suppressing the interest of the Nagas which is a blatant insult to the Federation in particular and the aspirant Nagas in general. The same was done for the post of Secretary Cum-Controller of examination”, it stated.
Alleging that the State Government’s motive is much more to kick-start the functioning of NSSB than lending ears to the genuine demands of the Federation, the ENSF said it would not accept the functioning of NSSB in its present form.
The Federation requested the Chief Minister to pursue the matter at hand and embrace the aspirations and interest of the general Nagas by coming to terms with the charter of demands being put forth time and again.
“This is the final letter of reiteration which will be made on our part. In the event of failure the Federation shall be propelled to launch another indefinite agitation. Subsequently, if any unfortunate incident ensued following the agitation, the State Government shall be held fully responsible”, it cautioned.
