NSSB: NSF reiterates demand to lower viva-voce mark from 12.5 pc to 5 pc


Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has reiterated that until and unless its demand for lowering viva-voce mark from 12.5 % to 5% was met, the federation would ensure that the final result of the Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB) phase-I examination did not come out.
Addressing media persons at its office here on Thursday, NSF president, Kegwayhun Tep said the federation would go all out to ensure that there was transparency and fairness. He cautioned that if NSSB was not properly conducted, the student body would take to the streets, prevent result declaration and even boycott viva-voce.
Tep said the federation had the support and mandate of all the aspirants and federating units who were ready to come out to the streets to ensure fulfilling of the aspirations of the student community.
NSF also demanded that NSSB make public the marks secured by the candidates as early as possible.
He said the federation’s concern was “the right person for the right job” and that it feels that the first circle of NSSB be fulfilled as per the desire of the student community.
He justified that their demand was just and right.
On the issue of students having to wear traditional attires to school, Tep said the federation felt that in order to preserve and protect the Naga identity it had come up with that formal request to the all the institutions including schools, colleges, private or government alike.
He pointed out that NSF was there to protect the cultural identity and the interest of the people.
Tep said Nagas often claim that they have rich culture and varied attires, but no one was making any effort towards protecting it.
Requesting all the institutions to work collectively, Tep expressed hope that through this step some reputed institutions could be inspired to come up with a proper traditional form of uniform for their students.
