With the aim of discouraging ineligible students from applying for Post Matric Scholarship (PMS), the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) launched a campaign “No to False Claim on Scholarships” at Sazolie College Jotsoma here Monday.
Speaking at the campaign launching programme, NSF president, Kesosül Christopher Ltu, said the federation initiated the campaign so the genuine students were not deprived of their rights.
Pointing out that 45000 students apply for scholarship every year under various schemes in the state, NPF president, however, expressed doubt that many bogus candidates apply scholarship in the state.
He reminded the student community that the actual purpose of scholarship was for academic expenses of those students whose parents’ income was low.
Further, Ltu said that the federation was initiating the campaign to discourage corruption in the society, adding it was not imposing on anybody. NSF president challenged the students to voluntarily come out and set an example on corruption and malpractice in the state. 
Ltu also said that many genuine Naga students studying professional courses outside the state received lesser scholarship amount as compared to other north east states. In this regard, he said the federation could apprise the state government to increase the amount for the genuine students. NSF president informed that first phase of initiative would comprise of campaign and sensitization programme, in which some model students would be picked to reach out to the different sections of people in the state.
In his address, Sazolie college principal, Dr. Kangzang Thou, lauded the initiative of the federation and said honesty and truthfulness should start from oneself.  
He said it was personal choice to follow or not what everybody was doing. He said such initiative to encourage honesty and truthfulness should start from the students and institutions.
A volunteer of the campaign, Aolem Imsong, said that it was one of the good initiatives that were close to her heart since it had to do with honesty and conscience. 
She also appealed to the fellow students to awaken their conscience and be responsible in the society to bring change.
NSF general secretary, Imtiyapang Imsong, who chaired the programme, said Naga people have started losing the legacy of honesty and truthfulness of their forefathers and called for upholding the good legacy by this generation.
The programme was attended by Angami students’ union (ASU) president and team, ANCSU team, NSF team, college students and others.  
It may be mentioned that some students of Sazolie collage Jotsoma voluntarily forwent the students’ scholarship last year.
