“NSF is not offensive but defensive; however the Nagaland Senior Government Servant Employees Welfare Association (NSGEWA) is offensive to destruct the future of the younger generation,” the NSF said reacting to the stand taken by the latter on the passing of the Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment (Second) Amendment) Bill 2009. Identifying superannuation as the “most sensitive and dear issue” for it, the NSF recalled the sacrifices made by its predecessors in 1991 who protested in the form of fast unto death with an interest to safeguard the future of the younger generation. NSF president, Mutsikhoyo Yhobu and general secretary, O. Wati Jamir in a joint statement said the will of the federation representing the aspiration of the younger generation for a “just cause” could not be totally thrown into the thin air by the “wishes of few vested and interested senior government employees who have already served 35 years of service or attained 60 years of age as government employees.” The NSF said it could not comprehend the desire of the NSGEWA who were trying to overstay without any iota of feeling that there were more than lakhs of educated unemployed youths seeking jobs for survival. Stating that the stand of the NSGEWA showed “clear indication of vested interest” due to which the fate of the educated unemployed youths were left at stake, the NSF said that the senior government employees has to be held responsible for not creating such avenues for the younger generation. The student body said it was saddening that the senior government employees were indulging in “rampant open collection of money” even upon the lower ranking government employees to go against the will and decision of the majority of the people of the state.
