DIMAPUR, SEP 1 (NPN) | Publish Date: 9/1/2018 1:01:38 PM IST

Expressing disappointment at the failure of state government and the department of school education (DoSE) to depute district education officer (DEO) and sub-divisional education officer (SDEO) in Longleng, the Phom Students Conference (PSC) Saturday said it has resolved to initiate first phase of agitation starting September 1-5, 2018. In a press release, PSC president, A Mane Phom, and education secretary, C. Purtoshi Phom, said the decision to launch agitation was taken at an emergency meeting held on August 31, 2018 at PSC headquarters Longleng. In this regard, PSC has appealed to all the students along with the teaching staff to observe ‘black day’ by wearing a black badge in all the institutions within Longleng jurisdiction as a sign of protest. 

PSC had on August 20 last served an ultimatum on the education department to depute DEO and SDEO in Longleng on or before August 31, 2018 and a representation on May 20, 2018.

PSC lamented that there has been no positive response from the department even after submitting the representation and repeated pleas.

It stated that the government and the department were expected to provide the very basic needs of the student community without burdening the students too much.

Given the educational backwardness and disparity of Longleng district, PSC said the government and the department rather than looking into the matter instantly have turned a blind eye to its genuine plea.

Further, PSC expressed regret that the department, even after waiting patiently, remained adamant that they would not post the concerned DEO and SDEO at Longleng.

PSC has warned that failure to fulfil its demands, the union would intensify agitation to the extent of office picketing and closing down institutions in the later phase of agitation.

Meanwhile, PSC has requested all its federating units to be mentally prepared for any eventually that might arise. It cautioned that the state government and department would be solely held responsible for any untoward incident.
