In a final notice issued today, the LOU, NH-29 reminded that the Guwahati High Court (Kohima Bench) had passed judgment in favour of the union through its Order No. W.P(C) No.98 (K) 2000 passed on dated 25/09/2000.

“However, the Government defiance to the call was unfortunate and as such, the union is constrained to issue this final notice that it will file a case in the court after one week from the date of publication of this notice,” it said.
The union urged the public to understand the union`s stand and not construe it otherwise.
