Ao Senden and the Ao Students’ Conference (AKM) on Monday informed that they have decided to postpone the protest that was proposed to be staged from February 16, 2016 by locking up the office of RMSA in Kohima and Mokokchung.
The decision to stage protest was taken on February 13 last during the meeting of Ao Senden, office bearers of AKM, Aor Tzukong Trok Mungdang and Aor Tzukong Trok Kaketshir Mungdang, wherein it was noted that the RMSA “failed to the request made by the Aos”.
In a joint press release, Ao Senden president Imolemba Jamir and AKM president L. Jemti Longchar said the proposed agitation was postponed after the Ao legislators, through a letter to Ao Senden and other NGOs, requested them to put on hold the proposed protest as Ao legislators have already discussed the issue with the chief minister, who was currently in New Delhi.
They were assured that only after the chief minister’s arrival from Delhi the issue would be taken up led by the chief minister along with Ao Senden, Ao legislators, AKM and the concerned department. However, they have cautioned that the postponement of the protest should not be misconstrued by the government or by any individual that the RMSA issue was over.
