Naga Students’ Federation has reiterated its demand to ban the proposed departmental exams for recruitment to various Group C posts under public health engineering department (PHED) scheduled on January 13. 

In a press release, federation president Ninoto Awomi and general secretary Liremo R Kikon also warned that if their stand was defied, officials of the department would be held solely responsible for any unwanted consequences thereafter. 

NSF asserted that it could not allow the proposed exam to take place as it was convinced that the proposed departmental exam undermined the very principle of meritocracy which it had been staunchly advocating for the last many years. 

Further, NSF said the exam defeats the very principle of providing a level playing field to everyone aspiring to serve the State government as a Group C employee by constituting Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB). 

NSF also appealed to all aspiring candidates to kindly cooperate and abstain from the proposed departmental examination in “our” collective bid to uphold and protect the future of youth and student community. 

The federation appreciated chief minister Neiphiu Rio and his cabinet colleagues for the sincere efforts been put in to ensure that reservation policy of the State was completely revamped and rationalised. 

NSF however said the exercise needed to be completed in a time-bound manner and an amicable settlement be sought over the issue of ‘reservation and reservation policies’, which has been stalling the NSSB before February 15, 2021. 

NSF cautioned that it would be compelled to take actions in conformity with the democratic principles in order to ensure that aspirations of the youth and student community of the State was upheld.
