Eastern Nagaland College Students’ Union (ENCSU) has welcomed the State Government, particularly the minister concerned, for its immediate positive response to Wangkhao College students’ demand and assuring to address their matter within 10 working days.

The union however expressed its strong opposition to the department of Higher Education’s decision to appoint contractual teacher at Wangkhao College, stating it was totally against the contractual appointment system at colleges in Eastern Nagaland. 

It said such appointments would create more problems in education sector and cautioned that if any such teacher was found even after its appeal, this could create more complications. It requested the eastern Nagaland students to remain alert against such appointments.

Urging the State government, particularly the higher education department, to look for existing lectures in some colleges and those attached at directorate in Kohima and Dimapur, ENCSU further suggested rectification and reshuffling of lectures from their assigned posts and send them where there was shortage of teachers at present. 

It also questioned the department why it was not aware of shortage of lectures at Wangkhao College when the semester exam was just near, which implied neglecting Eastern Nagaland institutions, and demanded only regular teachers in the colleges of the area.

Demanding that the higher education department immediately provide principals in colleges, the union said some colleges were functioning without them. It added that there was shortage of lecturers not only at Wangkhao College but in all the four government colleges, which were suffering due to shortage of teachers in every department in eastern area. 

It urged the department to immediately fulfil the genuine demands of the students of Wangkhao College and other Eastern Nagaland colleges. 

This was stated in a press release by ENCSU president M Longre Chang and general secretary WanGnei C Jessuhu.
