 * Demands setting up of common nodal cell for scholarships

 * 110 post of asst. prof. to  be routed through the NPSC

 * To appoint principals in colleges  without principals 

All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has set a 40-day ultimatum beginning February 22 for chief minister Neiphiu Rio and Higher & Technical Education and tribal affairs minister Imna Along to act on its charter of demands. 

The ultimatum signed by ANCSU president Vimeyiekho Vitso and general secretary Imnameren N Jamir, after the presidential meeting held on Friday, demanded that the State government uphold the assurance it had given and the notification issued in this regard subsequently on October 25, 2019 for setting up of Common Nodal Cell for all kinds of scholarship schemes. While the students were given a hope to soon see an established nodal cell, it regretted that the cell had not yet been set up.

ANCSU further reiterated its demand that the state government send the 110 sanctioned asst. professors’ posts under Higher ducation department to Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC) at one go. As some posts were advertised in 2019 and then kept on hold, the union demanded that the remaining posts (110 posts in total) be sent to NPSC within the next 40 days. 

ANCSU also demanded that the Higher Education department appoint principals in all colleges that are without principals in the next 40 days. Questioning the sincerity of the department towards the demands of the student community, ANCSU further appealed to the department not to sit comfortably when they were facing shortage of lecturers and their future was at stake. It said that this was the department’s responsibility to oversee the needs of colleges and recommend to the State government for necessary action. However, it alleged that due to incompetency of the department’s officials, almost all colleges were suffering from various problems. 

Cautioning the government against waiting for the students to protest, ANCSU urged the department to address the issues on priority to avoid any kind of unrest. While the primary responsibility of students was to attend classes, the government should not compel them to hit the streets, it warned.

Meanwhile, ANCSU has also asked the state government to call for a joint meeting of all stakeholders, within 30 days (w.e.f. February 22, 2020) in order to settle the decade long land issue at Kohima Science College, Jotsoma and other district colleges.
