Dimapur, June 25 (EMN): The Dimapur Naga Students’ Union (DNSU) has objected to the “seditious labelling” of collections made by NGOs and student groups as “illegal collection” by the Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industry recently.
According to a press release from the union on Tuesday, this “seditious labelling” has tarnished the “good image” of genuine NGOs and students bodies.
“Seeking of financial assistance and contribution by student bodies from the well-wishers including business community for genuine cause for students’ welfare cannot be termed as illegal collection and such random defamatory statements made by the DCCI are uncalled for,” it stated.
The union stated that the DCCI’s resolution were “dictative” in nature; and has “irrelevant authority to control the rights of the consumers, and instead encourages business community to practice illegal means.”
“In this matter the union will continue to execute its duties by being vigilant on the issues which deprive the rights of the consumers. Meanwhile, the DNSU demands DCCI to immediately revoke resolution no. 2 and no. 4. Failing which the office of DNSU will be compelled to initiate its own course of action,” it stated.
