Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has strongly denied allegations that the federation had stepped up its agitation just when the festive season was round the corner in order to extract some sort of “Christmas gift” (monetary benefit) from the government. “We know about talks of the market going on, but we really mean business and we are here not for ourselves by for our younger generations,” asserted NSF president Imchatoba Imchen and added that for the NSF, the “greatest gift” would be if the government fulfilled the federation’s demand for length of service. Imchatoba also told media persons the NSF was taking the “Christmas gift” allegations as “constructive criticism” but that such talks would not veer them away from the real issues. On the three-point assurance of the State government to the NSF issued Tuesday night, the NSF president said the government had given the same assurance on December 12 last year. He however said the NSF cannot be easily fooled this time. NSF finance secretary K. Kapani said some “vested interests” were trying to confuse the people by spreading the ‘Christmas gift” rumours since the people were with the NSF on the superannuation issue. It may be mentioned the NSF had threatened to boycott the Hornbill Festival last year too on the same issue.
