Naga Students' Federation (NSF) Friday commenced its indefinite agitation against the Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC) demanding, among others, total revamping in the functioning of NPSC.
NSF volunteers drawn from the Angami  Students' Union (ASU), All Nagaland College Students'  Union (ANCSU) and Combined Technical Association Nagaland (CTAN), assembled outside the NSF headquarters Friday morning and later marched to NPSC office carrying banners and placards  and "picketed" the office the whole day. 
NSF officials said more than one hundred volunteers took part in Friday's agitation. The lead volunteers carried a large banner that read "Total revamping on NPSC should be implemented" while others followed with placards that read "NPSC hangs thousand of students at stake", "Revamp NPSC, for the plight of society",  "We want good officer! Design the NPSC exam accordingly", "No change in the system, no examination", "No solution, no commission", "Commission not efficient on handling NPSC" etc. 
"We locked the office of NPSC and our volunteers maintained a close vigil in and around the NPSC office", informed Public Grievances Cell (PGC) chairman and vice president, NSF, Charles Lotha. The NSF agitation is on three counts - demanding total revamping in the functioning of NPSC, immediate conduct of Combined Technical Examination (CTE) on Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) pattern and clarification and rectification from NPSC why it failed to appoint six vacant posts in the Labour and Employment department during the recently declared NPSC results. 
Meanwhile, in response to the NPSC notification dated June 18, 2008, CTAN in an emergency meeting held Friday at NSF office resolved to extend full support to the demand of NSF. In a separate press release, NSF vice president Charles Lotha also said the Federation would not agree to piecemeal solution and that the agitation would continue till all the three demands were fulfilled.
"It is imperative that the high power committee proposals are implemented immediately," the release said. The Federation also expressed gratitude to all its activists for responding to the call of the NSF.
