Following a joint meeting between the State chief secretary, senior government officers and the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) held Tuesday in the conference hall of the chief secretary on the issue of fixation of length of service of State government employees, the State government has assured to look into the demand of the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) for fixation of length of service. State chief secretary Lalhuma in a letter addressed to NSF president said the government would file a review petition before the division bench of the Gauhati High Court within a period of one week alongwith a petition for condonation of the delay, praying for review of its earlier judgement and order dated January 18, 1993, in WP Civil Rule No. 364 of 1992. In the event of the Gauhati High Court giving an adverse judgement/order to the review petition, the chief secretary said the State government was committed to appeal to the Supreme Court, on the basis of the Supreme Court’s judgement dated January 14, 1993 in Civil Appeal No. 127, 128 & 129 of 1993 in YS Kothari vrs State Bank of India & Others. The letter also stated that the State government had agreed in principle to fix the maximum length of service for State government employees subject to favourable judgements being given by the “learned courts.”The chief secretary requested the NSF to withdraw their on-going agitation, in view of the assurances of the government. NSF appeals Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has called upon all educational institutions in and around Kohima to ensure active participation of students in the proposed picketing of the Secretariat office on Wednesday (Nov 26), as part of the NSF’s agitation against the alleged unilateral fixing of length of service of government employees by the State government. NSF general secretary Hetoi Chishi in a press release informed that other than those students appearing their examinations, all students are to reach High School junction at 8 a.m. While acknowledging the “unflinching support” of various sections of people, NSF also requested the staff of the Secretariat to “stay away” from the office on Wednesday. The federation cautioned that any staff ignoring the request of NSF would be doing so at their own risk.
