DIMAPUR, NOVEMBER 10 (MExN): The Eastern Nagaland College Students Union (ENCSU) has decided to launch a poster campaign starting Monday, November 13 to protest against the failure of the Nagaland State Government and the Higher Education Department to release full scholarships to students on time.
The ENCSU’s first phase ‘Black Badge’ campaign continued today as well, with students across the state registering their protest against the government by wearing black badges.
“If the Government and the Department can’t even spare the students scholarship, then the hope for fairness in other public welfare scheme doesn’t arise,” said a press statement from the ENCSU. It further asked the Higher Education Department to “refrain from acting so clean on the issue but rather tell the truth and resolve the issue…provided that the department comes up with all proper evidence to validate their claim.”
The ENCSU informed that along with the poster campaign, the ‘Black Badge’ campaign would continue simultaneously until justice is delivered. It requested the student community to cooperate and extend support. It also asked the union’s federating units to comply strictly with the directive.
The ENCSU further urged all student based organizations to join the protest “so that we don’t compromise with our rights and welfare.”
Meanwhile, the union has convened an emergency meeting on November 11 at 1:00pm at DUDA Guest House, Kohima. It asked all college representatives, KENSU, DENSU and well wishers to attend the meeting.
