DIMAPUR, OCTOBER 18: Two student bodies, Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) and Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) on Sunday suspended their indefinite statewide bandh on all NL10 and NL 11 registered vehicles after the state Government notified that it would streamline the SSA-RMSA teachers of 2010 and 2013 batches within 18 months without any conditions whatsoever.
In a joint statement, NSF president, Ninoto Awomi and ENSF president, Sepili L Sangtam expressed gratitude to the state Government for the positive actions taken in the interest of the teaching community.
It also placed on record its appreciation to leaders of the federating units and subordinate bodies and the entire Naga populace who stood with them throughout their journey “for a cause that is just and fair.”
State Chief Secretary, J Alam, IAS, had notified to the Presidents of NSF and ENSF that the issue of mainstreaming of SSA &RMSA (2010 & 2013 batches) teachers require in-depth consideration of the Government and requested the Federations to give the Government a period of 18 months to bring the matter to a logical conclusion once and for all within the stipulated time.
The NSF and ENSF said their joint journey in a collective bid to ensure that the plight of a large section of the teaching community within the state of Nagaland is taken due notice and affirmatively addressed by the Government of Nagaland. The journey was a painstaking and arduous one, only made easy by the wholehearted support and participation of the federating units and subordinate bodies of the two Federations, the joint statement said.
