Hearing on the Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment Act 2009 was held on September 23 in the principal bench of the Gauhati High Court after both sides- petitioners represented by senior advocate P.K.Goswami and respondents-the state of Nagaland, represented by Advocate General Bal Gopal and additional A.G.and senior government counsel L.S.Jamir presented their arguments. After hearing both parties, the High Court adjourned the hearing and refixed October 20 as the next date. At the hearing, counsel for the petitioner sought interim prayer for stay on the Retirement Act 2009 on the ground that it would be effected from October 31,2009. In response, the High Court declined the prayer for stay and directed the registry to list the case for argument on October 20. According to NSF president Mutsikhoyo Yhobu the Federation had also field a writ petition on September 22 through advocate Shipri Zho challenging the judgment order dated January 18,1993 passed by the high court in civil rule No.364 in 1991 between CANSSEA and the state of Nagaland. The chief justice on hearing the counsel for the NSF expressed the view that the judgment passed earlier by the writ court could not be challenged by way of another writ. Further the chief justice said the only remedy would be to appeal before the appropriate platform. In response, the counsel for the petitioner withdrew the petition. Lauding the performance of the Advocate General who showed concern for the Naga youth, NSF president Yhobu hoped the AG would continue to protect the aspirations of the students who often become victimized due to “clash between the state government and the government employees.”
