Dimapur, March 13 (EMN): The All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has reminded Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio about the pending post-matric scholarship for students under scheduled tribe category in Nagaland for the academic session 2016-17.
In a letter to the chief minister, the ANCSU stated that the union ministry of Tribal Affairs was yet to sanction the fourth instalment of said scholarship amounting to INR 7,71,73,310.
The ‘constant delay’ by the ministry to release the money has, according to the ANCSU, ‘gravely affected’ 11335 ‘deserving students’. It stated that despite assurances from the state government, it has failed to fulfil the demands of the students’.
Seeking immediate intervention from the chief minister, it warned that the ANCSU will not be responsible for ‘any untoward situation in future ‘.
