Kohima: The Nagaland government Thursday announced that it has agreed to the demands put forth by Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) regarding the Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB).
On Thursday, ENSF members had taken to the streets to peacefully protest against the state government regarding their demands.
Hundreds of students had gathered outside the civil Secretariat in Kohima to demand that the two charters of demands made by the ENSF be fulfilled.
The ENSF had demanded that the Group C posts, which are exempt from the purview of the NSSB, should be brought under the board for preliminary and written exam.
Similarly, the ENSF wants the preliminary and written exam for recruitment to the post of Constable/Fireman Constable/Warder/Female Warder in the Police, Prisons, Nagaland Lokayukta, NPTO, HG/CD and Department of Fire and Emergency Services (Sister Departments) Excise and Forest Guards in the EF&CC also to be conducted by the NSSB.
Speaking to the media, government spokesperson Mmhonlumo Kikon said, “The cabinet, in principle, has agreed to include all those departments which did not come under the purview of the NSSB.”
However, at the time of filing this report, ENSF president Chingmak Chang told EastMojo that the Federation was yet to receive any information from the government.
Kikon said the cabinet sub-committee will meet the ENSF to work out the modalities in the days to come. Stating the government’s decision, he also appealed to the ENSF to call off the agitation.
