Bandh breather for Naga students
Kohima: The Nagaland Tribes Action Committee (NTAC), Kohima and the Joint Coordination Committee (JCC) on Monday announced that students appearing in the Class X, XI and XII examinations conducted by the Nagaland Board of School Education (NBSE) are exempted from the purview of their bandh.
Considering the appeals made by various Naga Student Organisations and the public in general we have decided to exempt the students appearing in Class X, XI and XII examination conducted by NBSE from the purview of the bandhs. NTAC and JCC are spearheading agitations in the state demanding that Chief Minister T R Zeliang step down from his post.
Earlier in the day Nagaland School Education Minister, Yitachu had appealed to agitators to allow peaceful conduct of Class XI and XII examination by NBSE) starting from Tuesday. Yitachu told PTI that the examination will go ahead as scheduled as postponement of examinations will hamper the career of students.
Meanwhile, in regard to the issue of the unfortunate situation that has emerged in Nagaland, Jarjum Ete, president, Indigenous Women’s Resource Centre (IWRC), has said that political participation and leadership of tribal women of India is as important as that of tribal men towards ensuring the holistic development of these marginalised people.
The IWRC expresses its solidarity with all the men and women of Nagaland who are able to see the importance of including the critical views of women in the urban civic bodies of the state, hoping that better sense will prevail amongst the people for the larger interest, peace and progress of the Nagas.
