Dimapur, September 29: The Nagaland Law Students Federation (NLSF) has sought the State Government’s immediate intervention for smooth conduct of the odd semester LLB examination.
The LLB 1st, 3rd & 5th offline semester examination 2020 is tentatively scheduled from October 5.
In a appeal to the Chief Secretary, Government of Nagaland, the NLSF said the COVID-19 pandemic has also drastically affected the students of the three law colleges in the State – Kohima Law College, Mokokchung Law College and City Law College, Dimapur, as semester activities have been hampered and delayed, and examinations remain uncertain putting future of the students at stake.
But with the examination tentatively beginning from October 5 after an inexorable delay of 6/7months for the 1st, 3rd and 5th semester LLB in offline mode, NLSF said students safety concerns during the examination should not be compromised at any cost.
NLSF president C Talimoa and education secretary Shenti Simon C said it fears that many students may “suffer and loss unjustly” to appear the examination as outstation students especially from far-flung areas, who will face difficulties in coming to their respective institutions as certain restriction in movement could complicate the travel and with many hostels being closed. “… and certain sector/ward where students rented their rooms prior to the lockdown has been put to containment zone to contain the further spread of COVID-19 pandemic ensuing them to accommodation challenge,” it said.
Besides, NSLF said students might be asked to quarantine, which it said will be another “extraordinary challenge” for the students.
The federation appealed to the CS to direct the respective district administration by issuing necessary steps or ordinance as the case may be so that students could appear their examination smoothly.
