Terming the response of Dr. KC Nihoshe parliamentary secretary industries and commerce to its demand over the Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC) answer script scam as “amusing”, the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) Friday asserted his write up was expounded in a very “diplomatic” to “vindicate his status.” While lauding Dr Nihoshe for endorsing its intervention in the Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC) scandal, federation president Mutsikhoyo Yhobu and general secretary O Wati Jamir pointed out that the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) ultimatum addressed to state chief minister Neiphiu Rio on June 10 had categorically stated that parents whose sons and daughters were involved in the Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC) answer script scam must own moral responsibility and step down from government assignments so as not to prejudice the investigation process. Reminding its memorandum sought to invoke the conscience of parents, who were “none other than so-called elite Naga strata” to own moral responsibility for the actions of their sons and daughters, the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) urged the “those responsible Public leaders who are at the helms of affair to relinquish from the government assignment voluntarily so as to ensure judicious dispensation of the present scandal.” Stating that it had waited for twenty days with the hope that good reason would prevail and that the parliamentary secretary would relinquish his assignment by owing moral responsibility, the NSF leaders expressed surprise to note that instead of stepping down, he (Dr Nihoshe) was defending himself. Further, the NSF said the question of targeting Dr Nihoshe alone did not arise, since its “supplementary memo” to chief minister demanded that those government servants whose children were involved in the scandal should be immediately suspended or initiate any appropriate action against them. Buttressing its stand on moral responsibility, the NSF explained that when a train accident takes place, the minister in-charge of railways would own moral responsibility and resign, even though accidents happen. In the light of the above, the NSF said it was incumbent upon all the parents of those involved in the scam should ask the government not to be given any table/assignments “ till the investigation of the NSPC scandal was over” .
