Nagaland: NSF, ENSF to keep agitation on hold, to resume on Oct 19
The Naga Students' Federation (NSF) and Eastern Naga Students' Federation (ENSF) have decided to keep the agitation in abeyance, the same of which will resume on October 19.
The first day of the state-wide band called by the two students' group on all NL 10 and NL 11 registered vehicles on October 12 went off peacefully.
The agitation was held in protest against the Nagaland government's "inaction" in mainstreaming the SSA-RMSA 2010 and 2013 batches into the state education cadre.
The volunteers seized 37 vehicles found violating the bandh.
All Covid-19 Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) were adhered to by the volunteers during the agitation exercise, NSF members said.
The two federations had a threadbare discussion on the developments of the day and unanimously decided to keep the agitation in abeyance considering the sudden and untimely demise of (Late) Eno. C M Chang, Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Justice and Law, as a mark of respect for the departed leader.
Directions were also given to the federating units and subordinate bodies of the two federations to put in place all necessary preparations to ensure that the next phase of agitation is successful.
