Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) said it was compelled to relocate the venue of its upcoming 29th general conference from Ukhrul, Manipur to Solidarity Park, Kohima owing to the recent spike in COVID cases across the country.

 NSF president Ninoto Awomi told media persons at the federation’s office here Tuesday, that the relocation was made after the Manipur government had put various restrictions in its effort to handle the pandemic.

Organizing committee convener and former NSF president, Subenthung Kithan reiterated that NSF conferences were not only confined to Nagaland but organised in all the contiguous Naga inhabited areas irrespective of artificial boundaries. He however said that this year would be an exception given the nature of the situation.
