Kohima: Joining the wave of protests rattling Northeast India over the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) on Friday, the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has called for a 6-hour total bandh across Nagaland on December 14.A statement issued by NSF Vice President Dievi Yano and General Secretary Liremo Kikon said the bandh would be observed on Saturday from 6 am to 12 noon in all Naga inhabited areas.The statement said the decision was taken by the executive council of the Federation “to express the resentment of the Naga people against the passing of the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) in the Parliament, much against the interests and sentiments of the indigenous people in the North East states.”The NSF has also made an appeal for the support and cooperation of concerned citizens and stakeholders “in the fight to protect the existence and identity of the indigenous people.”The statement clarified that exemption from the bandh will be given to on-duty medical staff, students appearing for exams, media personnel and wedding goers with invitation card.
