A joint consultative meeting between the Naga Federation Students (NSF) and Phek frontal organization was held in Phek on Thursday where various issues were discussed. In a statement, NSF general secretary Ejanthung Ngullie said Phek public leaders were unhappy over the state run schools in the district. He said they lamented saying the remote villages faced more problems where teachers remain absent for long period of time, thus affecting the careers of the students.
Unnecessary upgradation of schools, bogus appointment of teachers was another vital point raised by the leaders, Ngullie said. He also said that the NSF has been requested by people to strongly take up the issue with the government.
He also said the recent decision taken by the state cabinet to reserve 10 EAC posts for backward tribes was widely discussed. He said the federation has seriously taken note of this particular issue as it was “dividing the Nagas further”.
Ngullie further stated that some of the speakers from the Chakhesang community said “certain creamy layers from among the backward tribes were reaping more benefits”. Some speakers from Phek defended the cabinet decision to reserve 10 EAC posts. NSF also interacted with the Pochury community in Meluri on the same day where public leaders and elders participated.
