 Keen on resolving the ongoing agitation by the All Nagaland College Students Union (ANCSU), the state government has been working on the issue despite the ultimatum by ANCSU to fulfil their demands before August 20 or else no government vehicle would be allowed to ply across Nagaland from August 20 

Reliable sources informed Nagaland Post that the government was seriously considering the demands of the ANCSU and was keen to resolve the matter at the earliest. 

On the demand to set up separate nodal cell for scholarship, it was learnt that a committee was set up to study the case and its report was expected within a week. On receipt of the report, the government will take steps to streamline the system. 

On land encroachment at Kohima Science College Jotsoma , sources said the deputy commissioner Kohima had been entrusted to conduct survey in May and it would take another 30/40 days. Without the survey, the government would not be able to take any decision, the sources said. 

All these were explained during the meetings held with the students on various occasions so their threat to prevent movement of vehicles had taken the government by surprise, the sources said.

JVC seeks clarification from ANCSU president

DIMAPUR, AUG 15 (NPN): Jotsoma Village Council (JVC) has issued a three-day ultimatum on All Nagaland College Students Union (ANCSU) president Katho P. Awomi to clarify as to, on what basis and under what authority, had he made the threatening statement on August 14 at a meeting with chief minister, deputy chief minister and chief secretary.
According to JVC chairman Mego Nagi and JVC secretary Pfüdolhoulie Rino, Awomi on August 14, had purportedly threatened to “dismantle” the DD Kendra, PHED Water Reservoir and the RCEMPA Music Academy Hall and “shift the Kohima Science College out of Jotsoma village jurisdiction”, if the three buildings could not be dismantled.
JVC also alleged that the “same person” had issued a statement which was also reported in the local media on April 24,2018, that the above three buildings would be vandalised. JVC said it could not understand as to why the ANCSU president “is targeting Kohima Science College Jotsoma or to shift the college out of Jotsoma Village jurisdiction, when land encroachment exists in all government colleges in the state”.
JVC said it has taken the statement of Katho P.Awomi, JVC not only as an insult and a direct challenge on the village but also “an insult to the Hon’ble chief minister and other officials present in the meeting.” 
 JVC has therefore, asked the All Nagaland College Students Union president to respond within three days from the date of the issue of the press release failing which it should not be held responsible for any untoward incident arising out of the issue.
