Sending a strong warning to the State government on the superannuation issue, the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) said it would persistently remonstrate till the government enshrines the length of service of government employees. “In the event of failure on part of the government to enshrine the length of service, NSF shall have no option other option than to take its own course of action,” NSF officials warned. Addressing a press conference, NSF president Imchatoba Imchen, vice president Charles Lotha and general secretary Hetoi Chishi told media that NSF had submitted a memorandum to the chief minister on September 23 on superannuation issue and apprised him of the issue. The student leaders said though the chief minister had assured to call a meeting in the first week of October to discuss the issue with representatives of all parties, no action had been taken till date. Instead, the State government had given a reply on September 29 which, NSF said, was not satisfactory or relevant to the federation’s demands. The State government reportedly told NSF that the Law & Justice department had to confirm the latest position of the review petition in the division bench of Gauhati Hugh Court on superannuation age, and also the chief secretary, P&AR, additional chief secretary (Home) had to indicate the number of posts created since the year 2003 as per their respective record. The NSF is demanding the fixation of length of service to be fixed at 33 years. However, the NSF today said it would also accommodate others viewpoint on whether the fixation of service should be 33 years or more.
