Kohima, October 21 (MExN): The Nagaland Law Students’ Federation (NLSF) held a joint meeting with Minister for Higher and Technical Education and Tribal Affairs Temjen Imna Along in Kohima on October 18 regarding the long pending demand of the Federation.
A press release from the NLSF information & Publicity Secretary, Renbeni Ezung stated that, through a representation addressed to the Minister, the NLSF stated the long-pending demand/desire of the Federation to establish a Government/Public Law College in the State.
It held that the federation has been appealing to the concerned authorities of the State Government for the past many years to establish a Government/Public Law College in the State. However, they regretted that the federation was yet to receive any positive response from the same.
NLSF further said that in view of the above situation; without a such college, the students’ community, especially those from weaker economic backgrounds or far flung location were facing much hardship in pursuing law studies in the state.
Establishing a Public Law College in the state would not only serve the interest of the students’ community in general and the Law students in particular, but would also be a great sign of concern and progress in favor of the Government of the day, the federation held.
Taking the matter into consideration, the Minister had assured the federation that the issue may be discussed in the Nagaland Assembly on priority to set up the same at the earliest.
