Dimapur, Dec. 11, 2020 : The agitating Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) has set January 10, 2021 as deadline for the Nagaland Cabinet to fulfil its demands, including 45% job reservation for those from the eastern districts in the Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB).

A press release from the federation on Friday informed that this was decided during a presidential meeting held in Tuensang.

ENSF along with its six federating units—Confederation of Chang Students’ Union, Khaimniungan Students’ Union, Konyak Students’ Union, Phom Students’ Conference, United Sangtam Students’ Conference and Yimchunger Akheru Arih Ako—resolved to consider the appeal letter from cabinet sub- committee and decided to temporarily suspend the agitation, it stated.

However, should the Cabinet fail to fulfil the demands within the deadline, the federation will resume its agitation “in a more extreme form even up to the extent of taking law and order situation into its hand”, it stated.
