Nagaland: Students call off protest in Tuensang

Kohima: The Chang Wedoshi Setshang (Chang Students Conference) on Saturday called off their protest in Tuensang after it received a written assurance from Nagaland’s higher education minister Temjen Imna Along.

The apex body of the Chang students informed that a consultative meeting with the state government was held on Friday.

The student body informed that a written assurance was received on Saturday following the meeting.

As reported earlier, the first phase of its agitation began on October 12 when the student body closed down the Sao Chang (government) college.

The students have been demanding the appointment of a principal in the college. The absence of a principal has created “untold hardships” in the functioning of the college as per the students.

In this regard, the CWS said that a principal has been deployed on Friday.

One more demand of the students is to increase the number of college buses. The students were assured that the state government would resolve the issue by November end.
