CYF, ZSUN to boycott R-Day

In line with Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) appeal to Naga youth and student community, the Chakhesang Youth Front (CYF) and Zeliang Students’ Union Nagaland (ZSUN) Tuesday affirmed not to participate in the the Republic Day celebrations on January 26, 2022.
In a press release, CYF president Vezhoduyi Nakro and general secretary Seve R Vadeo affirmed to extend “unconditional support” to the student community to express dismay over the “unjustified command and orders and subsequent merciless murders under the indemnity of infamous AFSPA, 1958”.
CYF said that the AFSPA has achieved nothing since its inception except terrorizing the innocent civilians. It said that the “so called ‘largest democracy in the world’ cannot have such Black Law against innocent and peace-loving people.”
CYF has, therefore, strongly demanded immediate “impartial/unconditional removal” of the AFSPA, 1958.
Until the demand was met, CYF said all its affiliated units have been directed to refrain from inviting the Indian armed forces during any functions or receive any aid under their banner.
Lauding the efforts made by the state government, CYF has appealed to the government to promptly facilitate the immediate removal of AFSPA “with utmost sincerity.”
ZSUN: In compliance with NSF directives, the Zeliang Students’ Union Nagaland (ZSUN) has directed all the student and youth bodies under its jurisdiction to adhere with the same.
In a press release, ZSUN president Kingsalt Hegwang and general secretary Sanlakbo Namdau appealed to all the federating and sub-federating units to comply with the directive “to showcase our resentment against Armed Force (Special Power) Act, 1958.”
