All Nagaland Electricity Field Workers’ Association (ANEFWA) Thursday, while appreciating state power minister Doshehe Y. Sema for assuring to release work-charged employees’ salaries before Christmas, asserted that the association was ready to agitate on December 25, in the event of government’s failure to fulfill its demands.
ANEFWA president Panger Pongen and joint secretary N. Lotha, in a joint statement issued here, said the association has resolved to call for a sit-in protest on Christmas day at all important points and areas across the state, if the state government failed to put into action the assurance made by the power minister, which appeared in a local daily on December 15. Informing that this was resolved at a convention of all zonal presidents and central office bearers of ANEFWA held at Kohima December 15 last, the statement said that association members would be preparing for the outcome.
Reminding that it would fight “aggressively yet democratically” for its rights which it claimed were fundamental and “legally justiceable”, ANEFWA members also asserted that there were many good Naga citizens other than “dishonest, corrupted and unconcerned elements”.
“If the cries of the oppressed/citizens/people are not met by their representatives and authorities on delegation, who is to blame? We are ready for the showdown,” the statement added.
ANEFWA earlier served a two-point ultimatum to the government, demanding payment of salary to work-charged employees under power department before Christmas, and to fill up all categories of technical posts.
