Reacting to the filing of a petition on July 27 by the Nagaland Service Government Employees Welfare Association (NSGEWA) against the Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment(Second Amendment)Bill 2009, the Naga Students Federation, said such moves by any individual or groups will not deter it from its commitment to defend the larger interest and welfare of students and youths of society. NSF president Mutsikhoyo Yhobu described the passing of the Retirement Bill 2009 by the elected members, as a landmark decision which was welcomed by the all sections of society including government employees. However, the NSF said it was “saddening that a few senior employees” under the banner of NSGEWA had moved the Gauhati High Court against the Bill. Yhobu said it was also worth mentioning that the Gauhati High Court had neither issued notice to the government Advocate General and its lawyer not granted stay. Expressing appreciation of the government advocate and lawyers, the NSF acknowledged the “sincerity of the state government in its initiatives” and further urged upon the government “ not to dissuade” from its principled stand to judiciously implement the Bill promptness.
