Dimapur, February 10 (NE): Earlier, in solidarity to the students and protestors against Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC), the Tenyimi Students’ Union Dimapur (TSUD), hoisted black flag as a symbolic protest in all the respective offices at the constituent units on January 8, 2020.
Today, February 10, 2020, in continuation of the protest, many Students’ Unions joined the cause and hoisted black flag in their respective offices along with the Tenyimie Students’ Union Dimapur.
The president of TSUD, Rukewezo Wetsah said that the union has strongly condemned the continuing violence against students and innocent protesters across the country and universities by “radical elements and state-sponsored groups” during the protest against Citizenship Amendment Act and National Register of citizens.
TSUD is organizing a small symbolic protest which is historic in Nagaland and it will let the whole Nagaland know that we will not bow down against the anti-elements which is happening in India. “We have given enough of mere leadership to ourselves. It is time to be a serving leader. We will not remain silent and this flag will not be put down until we get justice”, he added. Further, he also thanked all the tribal units for joining the flag hoisting.
