Hundreds of college students in Kohima Thursday staged a protest rally against non-compliance of their demands by Nagaland University vice-chancellor (V-C).
The demonstrators rallied from NSF office to Raj Bhavan where they submitted a four-point memorandum to the governor. The protest rally was initiated by All Nagaland college students’ union (ANCSU).
In its memorandum to governor, the union expressed its dismay over the failure of V-C’s commitment to meet their demands.
The union stated that V-C had assured to declare all undergraduate results when served with an ultimatum to its memorandum on June 30. However, till now there was no positive response, it said.
The four-point charter of demands of the ANCSU included timely declaration of undergraduate degree students as per UGC norms – declaration of results within 60 days from the last date of examination conducted – creation of a full fledged campus of Kohima and Medziphema campuses with separate administrative office headed by pro-vice chancellors; conduct examination/interview for filling up vacant posts in the university basing on 45% reservation for ST’s without any “backdoor appointment”; and development of infrastructure in all four campuses with funds judiciously used.
Naga students’ federation (NSF) president Mutsikhoyo Yhobu, who also addressed the students, assured its support and said ANCSU had taken the right decision to stage a protest rally to bring the ill management of NU to public notice. Expressing dismay over the failure of V-C’s commitment to the students, the NSF president asked the V-C and NU faculties not to play “pranks” with the career of students.
Further, he cautioned that the NSF would be compelled to intervene in registering the rights of students’ community if their demands were not met sincerely.
ANCSU’s general secretary Bendangnukshi said students’ community did not deserve to be suppressed, adding it would go to any extent if university failed to be student-centric.
Students from various colleges in Kohima held banners and placards that read “we want a reliable university”, “lack of administration disturbs functioning of university” “we want pro-work culture” and the like. Meanwhile, the post graduate students’ union, NU Kohima campus, has extended its support to ANCSU and appealed to the V-C to redress the submitted memorandum immediately.
