Kohima, March 19 (MExN): The All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has reiterated its three-charter demand to be fulfilled with regards to its demand for action against Nagaland State Technical Education Department.
The ANCSU had an emergency presidential council meeting on March 18 at the NSF Conference Hall here and following “thorough deliberations,” decided resolved on this.
In a press release from its President Zhoku Thuluo and General Secretary Benjong Longchar, the ANCSU noted that after two years of “persistent demand” to the government to take action against Technical Education Department for various “bungling, mishandling in conduct and allotment of technical courses seats to students,” the Government has taken some action. The Vigilance Department is said to have made a report “only for a single year against the students demand for 10 years.”
Following this, the Government of Nagaland took decisions, namely, constituted a committee to examine the matter of amalgamation of Technical Education Department with Higher Education, served show cause notice to erring officers of Technical Education Department, and issued notification with new guidelines for selection against State reserved seats.
The ANCSU maintained that it will extend support to the Government in the matter of amalgamation process. “We will closely monitor the process of taking disciplinary action against erring officials till the logical end,” it affirmed.
However, the ANCSU has refused to accept the notification of the Government against the seat reserved quota in its present form “for which we will inform about our next course of action after consultation with various student bodies and well wishers.” Till then, the ANCSU will stick to its three charter of demands.
