NUTA (L) in a press release informed that the association in a general body meeting held Thursday also deliberated on the vice chancellor’s statement that the University authorities were always open for talks to negotiate all genuine outstanding problems. Stating that teachers had always been willing for dialogues and deliberations on issues relating to the functioning of the Nagaland University, NUTA (L) alleged it was instead the University authority which had not paid any heed to the “Over and above this, the coercive, punitive and unilateral action of the Vice Chancellor has created this present impasse… That the teachers reaffirm and reiterate their stand that till the authority revokes the suspension and drops the charges unconditionally it would be difficult for them to resume the academic activities,” the association added. In a separate press statement, Nagaland University Teachers’ Association, Medziphema (NUTA-M) also reiterated the demand for unconditional revocation of suspension orders issued to eight teachers of Nagaland University. NUTA-M assured that its members would immediately resume classes once the vice chancellor revoked the suspension orders and withdraws all articles of charges against the teachers.
