DIMAPUR, OCTOBER 29: The All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has appealed to the Chief Minister to set up a High Powered Committee for settlement of the Kohima Science College land issue.
In a memorandum submitted today, the ANCSU has appealed for setting up of the Commission within 1 month, and that the Commission submit its report within 2 months. The HPC should formulate policies, provisions and action plan on how to settle the land issue for once and for all, the memorandum stated. The Union demanded that the State Government implement the recommendation of the HPC within 1 month from the date of submission of the report.
The Union further reminded the Chief Minister of his and State Government’s assurance on August 14, 2018, to ANCSU and stakeholders of the Kohima Science College to solve the land issue. The ANCSU appreciated that a land survey was completed, and the report tabled thereafter. But subsequently, the appeals of ANCSU for settlement of the land issue in keeping with the report were not heeded to by the Government. The ANCSU also pointed out that the State Government’s failure to respond to its appeals for a joint meeting with all the stakeholders. “It is with heartfelt regret to recollect the letter to your good office on the November 20, 2019 vide ref. no. ANCSU-CM/H&TE/Memo-1/2019-21, and subsequent letter to the Chief Secretary on February 21, 2020, appealing for a joint meeting with all the stakeholders, but to no response till date (sic),” the memorandum stated.
The college students’ body expressed hope that the Chief Minister would not disregard the issue further, but commit in bringing a permanent settlement of the land issue for the welfare of the students’ community.
The memorandum was signed by ANCSU president Vimeyiekho Vitso and general secretary Imnameren N Jamir.
