Kohima, July 04 (NEx): The Naga Students’ Federation expressed jubilance that the Nagaland state government has approved to set up Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB) by realising the long cherished dream of thousands of aspiring students in the state to equal job opportunity and meritocracy in the process of selection.
In a press release on July 3rd, the federation reflects back on the past when department of public & administrative reform (P&AR), government of Nagaland, first forwarded it’s recommendation on Nagaland Staff Selection Board to the state cabinet council in the year 1995 followed by ACAUT & PSAN, however, due to the weak political will of the time, the same could not be materialized.
The journey of the NSSB since inception has been a difficult path, one filled with many challenges and disagreements along the way, however, through the collective efforts of all the past leaders and present, the aspirant students’ community, the concerned citizens and with the sincere commitment and sheer political will of the present state government led by Hon’ble Chief Minister of Nagaland Neiphiu Rio and his esteemed Council of Ministers, our hard labour has come to fruition today, stated NSF.
It is not the final blow that breaks a rock, but all the blows that had gone before the last and in this light, the Federation recalled and acknowledged all men and women who have shouldered this noble responsibility in the past by carrying forward the aspiration and our collective dream of a future built upon the foundation of equality and meritocracy.
The NSF also conveyed it’s gratitude to the state government for its genuine concern towards the students’ community and the youths, having embarked upon a historical crossroad of our state and expressed optimism that the Nagaland Staff Selection Board will be implemented in letter and spirit.
