A delegation of Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) led by its president Ninoto Awomi called on chief minister Nephiu Rio at his office here on Wednesday morning to apprise him and seek his support to the various pressing issues confronting the student community in the State.

According to a joint communiqué issued by Awomi and NSF general secretary Liremo K Kikon, the chief minister congratulated the new team of office-bearers and assured the delegation of his government’s fullest support to the initiatives and endeavours that the new team proposed to undertake.

NSF submitted a memorandum to Rio, which among other things, impressed upon him to set up Staff Selection Board (SSB) committee within a period of two months by the personnel & administrative reforms department with officials of the department concerned and experts to draft the policy in tune with States like Arunachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, etc, that have already implemented it. 

NSF also pressed upon the chief minister to scrap away departmental exams immediately and stressed that all vacancies in Grade III posts that did not fall under the purview of Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC) should come under SSB for open competition. The delegation urged Rio to take a cabinet decision in this regard immediately, get a notification to this effect issued and accordingly notified in the official gazette within a period of two months. 

Rio gave a patient hearing to the delegation and acknowledged that setting up SSB was the need of hour to root out corruption and take forth the culture of meritocracy. He admitted to certain practical difficulties confronting his government in setting up SSB and its implementation. 

He, however, assured the team that the matter would be discussed with his cabinet colleagues and fellow legislators and that right steps would be taken up by his government in this regard at the earliest. 

Rio also expressed his happiness that NSF was taking a leadership role on the issue and expressed his optimism that the involvement of the federation would hasten the process. NSF also apprised Rio on ANCSU’s five-point charter of demands, to which the latter assured that necessary steps had already been taken.
