A meeting convened by chairman of Chief Minister’s Corpus Fund (CMCF) for Kohima district, Dr. Nicky Kire, MLA, with the Angami Students’ Union (ASU) in the office of DC Kohima on Tuesday, resolved the CMCF impasse arising out due to non-inclusion of ASU representatives in the selection board of CMCF for Kohima district. ASU assistant general secretary Zakie Khate in a press release informed that the meeting discussed various technical issues and review of CMCF system and a mutual agreement was reached between the government and ASU through verbal discussion. The meeting also resolved to fulfill the proposals of the Angami Students’ Union (ASU) including inclusion of ASU representatives in the CMCF selection board, with equal rights and voice; conduct of CMCF interview strictly on merit basis, and that all political recommendations should not carry any weightage.
