Supports ENSF and NSF ultimatum
Meanwhile, the YAA executives during its first coordination meet on September 16 expressed deep concern over the ongoing SSA & RMSA 2010 and 2013 batches issue. It extended support and co-operation to the 30 days ultimatum served by ENSF and NSF to the state government. 

The stated agreement made between the NSSATA and School Education Department, Nagaland in the presence of NSF and ENSF which have already been lapsed for over two years, is nothing short of sheer attempt to deprive the genuine demand of the teachers. 

In this regard, YAA appealed the state government to uphold the agreement in letter and spirit and to response immediately.
