Mentioning that the federation is also aware that certain individuals have been exercising political connections in obtaining transfer orders to the place of their convenience which has been causing much hindrances and irreparable damage in the teaching-learning process, the NSF said it would continue to
remain vigilant to such political transfers which are prevalent in almost all the departments and initiate necessary course of action to check those practices, and in particular to bring about a fair and equitable learning environment in our educational institutions.
In the pursuit of a transparent, accountable, and student-centric education system, the NSF further added that that it would continue to extend its fullest support and cooperation to the Nagaland government in implementing all forward-thinking education reforms and initiatives.
