Students urge CM to intervene in Kohima college land encroachment

Demand early solution to problem involving Kohima Science College in Jotsoma

Kohima: Expressing serious concern over the failure of the authorities concerned for not being able to take steps for the early settlement of the Kohima Science College Jotsoma (KSCJ) land encroachment issue, the All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) and the Kohima Science College Students’ Union (KSCSU) have made an appeal to chief minister Neiphiu Rio to intervene into the matter.

In a letter to Rio, the student organisations have urged the state government for an early solution to the problem.

In a joint memorandum addressed to the CM, ANCSU president Katho P Awomi and KSCSU general secretary Vibeizotuo Tetso pointed out that the district administration has prepared a survey report within the stipulated time, as directed by the chief minister, and has submitted the same to the state government.

However, the memorandum alleged that over a month has passed since the submission of the report, but the authorities concerned have failed to go ahead awaiting the directive from the state government for reasons best known to them.

“We hope that the state government would not shy away from delivering justice to the student community,” the memorandum said, adding: “We would like to appeal the chief minister to take up the issue seriously and give necessary directives to the district administration for an early settlement of the issue.”
