The office bearers of the Naga Students’ Federation called on Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio today at the CM’s official residence in Kohima. At the meet, the NSF leaders presented a representation to the Chief Minister seeking for his immediate and effective intervention in the pressing issues of illegal immigrants and backdoor appointments.

On the INFLUX OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, the NSF regretted the inability of successive governments to effectively implement the Inner Line Permit “leading to a surge in illicit activities that endanger our unique identity, culture and demography.”

The student body reiterated that the exclusion of Dimapur District (erstwhile) from the ILP regime, has created a perilous haven for illegal immigrants and pointed out that this exclusion poses a grave threat not only to Nagaland but also to the North Eastern hills.

Further, the NSF suggested that the State Government establish ILP Monitoring Cells at Dimapur Railway station, Dimapur Airport, and all entry/exit points to Nagaland state; implement stringent ILP regime in all District Headquarters; launch extensive awareness campaigns to educate all communities residing in Nagaland and beyond about the mandatory requirement of the ILP for entry into the state.

On BACKDOOR APPOINTMENT, the NSF, while acknowledging the establishment of the Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB), raised the prevalent issue of backdoor appointments within various government departments. “The Federation, through our RTI campaign, has uncovered numerous discrepancies that suggest a continuation of this practice, undermining the integrity of our administrative system,” it stated.

Urging the Chief Minister to take decisive action to eliminate these backdoor appointments, the Federation suggested instituting stringent measures to ensure compliance with established recruitment protocols which it said “will not only reinforce the NSSB’s efforts but also our confidence in your government’s commitment to justice and transparency.”
