  After a meeting Friday between the state government and Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) and Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) over the demand to streamline the services of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan teachers of 2010 and 2013 batches remained inconclusive, the student federations are scheduled to meet with the chief minister to resolve the issue.

NSF president Ninoto Awomi informed Nagaland Post that the meeting with the government officials was held on the invitation of the chief secretary in-charge, J Alam. Though the state government had urged both NSF and ENSF to call off the proposed agitation, he said that the student federations were firm with the demands as they were not satisfied with the state government’s response.

When asked whether they were going ahead with the proposed agitation, Ninoto said that a meeting with the chief minister has been scheduled for Saturday. The outcome will be known only after the meeting the chief minister, he said.

“We remained firm on our demand that the government should give a written assurance to streamline the services of the teachers in a time-bound manner,” NSF general secretary Liremo R Kikon told PTI.

Officials of departments such as School Education, Finance and Personnel and Administrative Reforms were present at the meeting. Five representatives of the NSF and four of the ENSF attended the meeting held in the civil secretariat.

On October 10, the state government had appealed to NSF and ENSF to reconsider and withdraw their proposed agitation from October 12 in view of the exercises undertaken and progress made in mainstreaming SSA and RMSA teachers (2010 and 2013 batches) and the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic situation.

Making this appeal on behalf of government, chief secretary in-charge J Alam further felt that taking up internal service matters of government employees through public agitation was not a healthy precedent as this would cause hardships to people at large and adversely affect delivery of public service.

As part of their phase-I agitation, NSF and ENSF threatened to impose a state-wide bandh on government vehicles (NL 10 and NL 11) starting October 12, 2020.

The federations have been maintaining that the government failed to implement the June 12, 2018 agreement signed between the education department and NSSATA, NSF and ENSF. 

They said that as per the agreement the department would rectify the nature of appointment of SSA teachers of 2010 and 2013 batches would be rectified based on appointment order, RTI reports and advertisement and other relevant documents.
