Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) and Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) have served three-day ultimatum to the Nagaland University to scrap all those appointments made based on NU advertisement published on August 10, 2009 and re-advertise the same within the same deadline which began Tuesday. The NSF and ENSF revealed this while addressing a joint press conference at the office chamber of the NSF president here Tuesday afternoon. The joint press conference was led by NSF president Mutsikhoyo Yhobu and ENSF President Hawang T Wangsha. The deadline was conveyed to the Vice Chancellor Prof. K. Kannan when a joint team of NSF and ENSF officials called on him at Lumami campus Monday. There was positive response from the VC to the joint demand of the NSF-ENSF made earlier. Both the presidents of NSF and ENSF, however, expressed dismay at the attitude of the Registrar Nagaland University in refusing to meet the joint NSF-ENSF delegation when they went to meet him with prior information yesterday. The NSF president questioned whether the registrar was here for the concern of the Naga students. Similarly, ENSF President Hawang reminded that as long as the Registrar was in Nagaland he was a guest and that he should be able to identify the host. He also warned that if such things crop up again, it would be compelled to individually take up things against the Registrar. The demand included scrapping of the appointment made earlier based on the August 10, 2009 advertisement and to immediately re-advertise the vacant posts within 3 days and also to strictly implement the 45% reservation of posts in Group C & D for STs of Nagaland. The Nagaland University in an official communiqué to the two federations by Deputy Registrar (Establishment) Dr. Abemo also informed that the Executive Council of Nagaland University which held its meeting on February 13 last has ratified the action taken by the Vice Chancellor on the matter of implementing the office memorandum of Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, Department of Personnel & Training No.36017/1/2004-Estt (Res) dated 05.07.2005, reserving 45% of posts in Group C & D for STs of Nagaland. The communiqué also assured that as per the decision of the Executive Council, the Nagaland University will be re-advertising all the Group C and D posts at the earliest. The NSF and ENSF after detecting anomalies in the NU advertisement published in August last year submitted a joint representation to the Chief Rector and Vice President. However, failing to draw any response, a joint memorandum was submitted to the Visitor, the President of India on November 26 last demanding the implementation of the 45% post reservation for STs of Nagaland based on the Ministry of P&AR office memo. Both the NSF and ENSF regretted the attitude of both the VC and Registrar towards the two apex students’ body in not giving due regard to their demand made earlier and going ahead with the interviews for appointment of non-teaching staffs for group C & D. It was revealed that the volunteers of the NSF and ENSF went to stop the interview for the appointment of staff for the Engineering College held at Dimapur during the month of January and met the Registrar who casually assured that the demand would be implemented. NMA demands Expressing serious concern over crisis in Nagaland University and suspension of three NUTA leaders by university vice-chancellor (V-C), the Naga Mothers’ Association (NMA) today said such kind of “harassment and victimization” was unwarranted. The NMA demanded that suspension of three NUTA leaders should be immediately revoked in the interest of justice and student community. NMA president Abei-u Mere and secretary Lochumbeni Humtsoe, through a joint note also demanded the state government to immediately recommend its ‘Inquiry Committee Report 2009” on NU to the visitor, the President of India and union MHRD ministry for immediate action.
