Dimapur Naga Students’ Union (DNSU) has served 10-day deadline to the concerned authority over the delay of issuing text books to the students. 

In a press statement, DNSU president Sedevilie Angami and secretary education & statistics Tenyebinlo Himb pointed out that delay in issuing of textbooks will jeopardise the future of thousands of students as mid-term examination will start in the first week of May.

Despite request from Dimapur Education Office to department of School Education on February 27 regarding shortage of textbooks numbering 64,779, the Dimapur Naga Students’ Union  claimed that no action has been taken so far. Therefore, the union warned that further action would be initiated after the expiry of the deadline. 

Meanwhile, Dimapur Naga Students’ Union  further informed that it will be conducting education tour after the Lok Sabha election within its jurisdiction and will strictly check proxy teachers, RTE for the students, land encroachments, mid-day meal scheme and other pertaining issues to the education system.

The union has also warned all shopkeepers  to strictly adhere to Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act (COPTA)2003 and not to sell tobacco products to students in uniform, below 18 years, within 100 meters radius from educational institutions.
