Nagaland students’ body announces indefinite digital protest from Oct 12
The All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has on Tuesday, announced an indefinite digital protest from October 12, after the state government “failed” to set up an Enquiry Commission to probe the utilisation of the Rs 3.71 crore for the Khelhoshe Polytechnic Atoizu (KPA) in Zunheboto.
The decision was taken following the expiry of the 30-day ultimatum served by the students’ body to the Chief Secretary on August 31, demanding a probe into the fund utilization for KPA, under the All India Council for Technical Education-North Eastern Quality Improvement Program (AICTE-NEQIP) scheme.
“The Students’ Union is constrained to express its resentment against the state government for unheeding to the genuine demand of the union in setting up of an Enquiry Commission,” said the president of the ANCSU, Vimieyekho Vitso.
Vitso said the state government has remained passive over the demand raised by the union.
“We shall not remain silent when the welfare of the students’ fraternity is ignored,” he added.
He informed that this is only the first phase of the agitation which will kick off with the indefinite digital protest with effect from October 12.
During this protest, indefinite e-mails and calls would be sent and made respectively to the government functionaries, online poster campaigns etc. “All e-mails and calls would be made requesting the state government to hear the genuine demand of the union,” Vitso added.
The Union has also appealed to all its units to be prepared to participate in the proposed protest.
