Accusing Samagra Shiksha Nagaland (SSN) of failing to honour the August 19, 2020 agreement, the Eastern Sumi Students’ Union (ESSU) has affirmed that it was constrained to initiate its own course of action and cautioned that it would “not be held responsible in case any untoward incident happens during the course of its agitation”.

In a representation addressed to the SSN state mission director, ESSU president, Hokato V Yepthomi and general secretary, Vikiyeto V stated that in response to ESSUultimatum on August 5, 2020, SSN team led by joint mission directorheld a meeting with ESSU to discuss and resolve on the issue on August 19, 2020 at Shevishe village, Aghunato. 

IT said the meeting concluded with an agreement that as demanded by ESSU, the incomplete school buildings at Ngozubo, Shevishe, Kelto and Viyilho village would be completed by January 2021.

ESSU said it was grateful for completion of building construction of GMS Viyilho and GMS Kelto although other components as specified in the work orders had not been added.

However, ESSU said that the works at two schools (GMS Ngozubo and GMS Shevishe) had stopped and despite its consistent reminder to responsible authority to resume the work, no action was taken.

ESSU expressed dismaythat the responsible authority was “dishonouring the agreement which is an act of insincerity and betrayal upon the people of our area”.

ESSU said it also issued representations regarding non construction of GPS Hoshepu (A) on August 21, 2020 and November 30, 2020. The union stated that it was“surprised to see the lackadaisical response of the appropriate authority despite knowing the fact that the school building construction has not been started for more than a decade after being sanctioned”.

ESSU, therefore, stated that it had no other option but initiate its “own course of action” for failure of the authority in addressing the following demands: completion of school building constructions as per specification and as per August 19 agreement timeline; appropriate action against erring officials and intimate to the office of the ESSU Hqrs Aghunato; initiate construction of GPS Hoshepu (A).
