Against Naga club demolition NSF staged a protest before building

KOHIMA: The Naga Students Federation (NSF) on Monday started a dharna in front of its demolished office premises in the Nagaland capital from 9 am.

The dharna protest began after the expiry of a 24-hour ultimatum given by the student body to the state government to nab those responsible for vandalizing its office building on Saturday morning.
Addressing media persons in front of the vandalism office, NSF president Kegwayhun Tep said the decision to stage the sit-in protest was taken at a meeting on Sunday evening.

Although there was a verbal communication with the investigating authorities regarding the case, they indicated that the federation was not satisfied with the progress of the investigation and hence was proceeding with the protest.
He appealed for the support and cooperation of the federation and subordinate organizations as well as the frontal organizations and all the Nagas.
Regarding responsibility for the demolition of the Naga Club, Tep replied that the NSF was aware of it, but had not taken the law into its own hands as the case was now under investigation.

He remarked that until the final report of the investigation comes, it will not be possible for him to say definitively that the demolition was done by the Naga Club.
On whether the NSF was aware of the Naga Club’s 45-day holiday notice before the incident, he admitted that the federation had received the holiday notice, but it had expired long ago.
On the issue of NSF asking to transfer a plot of land in its name, which was later refused after the Naga Club asked the Deputy Commissioner not to release it, the tape clarified. That they have records which were already in the public domain that the study body was the custodian of the heritage building and had always mentioned in its official documents that the building was the home of the Naga people.
Meanwhile, Maralui Karalimei Swijoikang (MKS) or Maram Students Union of Manipur’s Senapati district has condemned the ‘illegal’ demolition by unknown miscreants at the Naga Students Federation (NSF) office in Kohima.
In a press release issued by the MKS office, he expressed shock on learning of the illegal demolition of the NSF office.

Condemning the incident, MKS called it ‘a cowardly and indecent act in today’s times’.

MKS has appealed to the authorities concerned to look into the matter and arrest the culprits as soon as possible and thus provide justice.
