Student bodies respond to NPF Jangpetkong on DIS issue
Changkikong Students’ Conference, Japukong Students’ Conference and Tzurangkong Students’ Conference have issued a rejoinder to Tongpangnochet, NPF president, 29th Jangpetkong A/C on the issue of posting of DIS Mangkolemba.
A joint release issued by CKM, president, Along Tzudir, TKM, president, Nathan Ozukum and JKM, president, K.Lima Longchar stated their sole motive was to protect educational institutions from domination of vested interested politicians and maintain balance of government officials from different villages/ range under Mangkolemba sub-division since Mangkolemba was not destined to be neither a single village nor a range.
While acknowledging DAN government under the leadership of Neiphiu Rio and education minister Nyeiwang Konyak for posting Yarang Pongener as DIS Mangkolemba, it however questioned as to how Marchila who was posted in place of Yarang Pongener as desired by students should not be allowed to take charge as DIS Mangkolemba even after a lapse of more than one month after the issue of transfer and posting order on April 30.
It further alleged Yarang Pongener for instigating a political party under the banner of NPF 29th Jangpetkong A/C to support him for DIS Mangkolemba and cautioned that it would seek legal advice under the established service conduct rules.
The student bodies strongly reiterated its decision to intensify its action from June 7 onwards until their demands were met.
