To bring normalcy in the border of Assam and Mizoram,talks should be held at CM level: NESO

Shillong, Nov 12: The North East Students’ Organisation (NESO) today the 11th November 2020 conducted an online meeting between its members and the constituent students’ organization representing the seven  North Eastern states viz Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and  Nagaland.

After thorough deliberations the meeting resolved that due to the prevailing situation arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic, the house unanimously agreed to further extend the tenure of the current Executive Council of NESO  to be in office for another year.

The house voiced its strong opposition and vehemently condemn the recent statement of the Union Home Minister with regards to the Citizenship Amendment Act. As had been expressed earlier through different mediums, NESO once again reiterated its stiff opposition  to this draconian act which is clearly detrimental to the indigenous populace of the North  East region.

The NESO would like to mention that even though the case is pending in the  Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, yet the constituent organisations of NESO are at full liberty  to design their own course of agitation taking into account their respective ground situation,  in coordination with NESO.

The NESO is expressing its anguish and grave concern of the situation arising out of the border  dispute between Assam and Mizoram. NESO is strongly of the opinion that such unfortunate  circumstances evolves due to the failure of the successive governments to solve this long  pending issue in the past and present.

Despite the ongoing stalemate, NESO strongly opines  that there should be normal and free flow of goods, materials and essential commodities  between the two states. Even though talks are initiated between the two states at the level of  the respective Chief Secretaries, yet no improvement was observed on the ground.

Therefore, NESO demands that talks should be conducted at the level of the two Chief Ministers so as to bring a lasting and permanent solution thereby ensuring safety and  normalcy to the people living on both sides of the border at all times.

The Pandemic has brought untold miseries to people from all walks of life due to the restrictions and lockdowns imposed by the Government. At the receiving end are many entrepreneurs and self-employed youths who are availing loans from various financial  institutions.

The NESO appeals to all financial institutions in the region to exempt monthly  loan payments during the restricted and lockdown periods and extends the deadline to a  further date so as to ensure that entrepreneurs and self-employed youths do not suffer in their  struggle to make ends meet.

Similarly, students are also largely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic whereby there is a long and abrupt disruption of classes and examinations. The Union Ministry of Education  had recently announced that examinations should be conducted at all costs and states have  to devise mechanisms to ensure that all students are able to appear in their respective  examinations.

At present, all North Eastern states are complying with the direction by  conducting exams preferably through online mode. However, certain anomalies were  detected with regards to the online examination conducted.There are many areas in the  North East region which have very poor network connectivity and some are yet to be  connected online.

Owing to this fact, the NESO highly recommends the respective  governments and educational institutions to facilitate both online and offline mode of  examinations so as to ensure that not a single student is left out of the examination process  conducted in this pandemic. Said Mr. Samuel B Jyrwa Chairman and Mr. Sinam Prakash Singh Secretary General of the North East Students’ Organisation in the press statement issued today.
