Post Graduate Students’ Union (PGSU), Nagaland University, has indicated that it might resort to violent means of agitation if the ongoing impasse between the University authority and Nagaland University Teachers’ Association (NUTA) was not resolved immediately. “We assure that our next course of agitation wouldn’t be a peaceful one,” PGSU officials told newsmen, adding “students are now on a war-footing and the last fight will be do or die.” Briefing media persons Wednesday on the sidelines of the two-day picketing of NU office, PSGU officials said their “patience was running out…we have no classes for the last 28 days.” They also regretted that their twin demands - unconditional revocation of suspension orders along with charge sheets served to ten teachers by the vice chancellor and immediate resumption of classes and other academic activities by teachers - submitted to authorities concerned had, so far, yielded no results. The students also said that the impasse between NU authority and NUTA was a “battle of egos” since both sides were adamant on their stands, which ultimately resulted in the students becoming the victims and main sufferers. “We are supposed to finish our courses by September, but if the tangle continues, we might not be able to complete the courses even by December,” the students said.
