Naga Club reminds Naga Students’ Federation on vacating Naga Club building

Naga Club (NC), which had served deadline on the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) to vacate the Naga Club building at Kohima on or before August 27, has reminded the federation to communicate with the Club on the action taken.
In a reminder to the Naga Students’ Federation president, the Naga Club president Kuolachalie Seyie and working committee chairman Khriedilhoulie Theünuo reminded that the federation was requested to vacate the building in toto on or before August 27, 2022, so as to enable building reconstruction. However, the Naga Club said that the deadline of has already expired and the club has not heard anything from Naga Students’ Federation.
It may be mentioned that following Naga Club executive council’s decision to begin the construction by September 1, the NC on July 12 requested the NSF to vacate the building.
In its letter, NC said that reconstruction of the building was a long-felt need.
The club stated that though NSF was an “endeared tenant”, the allotment of the rooms by the then general secretary of the Naga Club Vilavor Liegisie on rent basis was given to NSF in a demi order note specifically mentioned on the body of rental application letter dated April 4, 1983.
It said NSF paid Rs 500 in rent for the month of April 1983 on April 7, 1983, after which the federation never paid Naga Club house rent from May 1983 till date. However, as a student organization, the club said it treated them as children, and therefore never questioned non-payment of house rent. NC said it consider itself as parents and elders and therefore NSF’s non-payment of house rent has never been made an issue in the past for all these years since May 1983 nor has it been made an issue today, for the same reason.
However, with the passage of time, Naga Club said that its property had undergone the severest of depreciation and stood dilapidated without proper amenities, projecting Nagas particularly the Naga Club and all that it represents, in a very poor light, as though it were in a deep slumber.
The club said it was, therefore, imperative and inevitable to demolish the existing building in its entirety and build a totally new building, well equipped with facilities providing all modern amenities for the welfare of all the Nagas.
However, Naga Students’ Federation had said that Naga Club building in Kohima had been made an “issue of dispute” by some individuals who recently formed a Naga Club and were now not only laying claims as the sole owner of the building in Kohima, but also issuing eviction orders.
