The Nagaland University Non-Teaching Staff Association (NUNTSA) has decided to continue its agitation in the form of total cease-work, which entered the third day on Friday, till fulfillment of their demands. The NUNTSA agitation began on Wednesday over the non-fulfillment of their charter of demands by the Nagaland University authorities. The decision to continue the agitation was taken during the NUNTSA general body meeting held on Friday. According to a NUNTSA statement issued jointly by its president, Medo Chirhah, vice president, Khotuo Suokhrie and general secretary, Lanuzulu, the house viewed with serious concern the Office Memorandum issued by the NU Registrar asking the striking non-teaching staff to resume duties with immediate effect and threatening to enforce the principle of “No Work No Pay.” The NUNTSA observed it as a “direct insult” to the Association with the sole motive of suppressing its democratic and peaceful movement in fighting for genuine rights. “The Vice Chancellor and the Registrar should have rather attended to the needs of the Association by being present in office instead of running away,” the NUNTSA said and alleged that the two officials have shown least concern and taken no initiative to resolve the issue. Regarding the September 26, 2008 agreement, the NUNTSA said it was unaware of such agreement and was never a party to such an agreement or a signatory. The NUNTSA said they were not even invited to the meeting.
