KSO appeals for reschedule of TET

325

IMPHAL, Aug 27: The Kuki Students’ Organization (KSO) requests the authority concerned to again reschedule the date of the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) which slated to be conducted on September 2011 in the interest of the community as the test falls on the annual event of ‘Black Day’ which is considered an important day to the Kukis.

It said that the day which is also called ‘SAHNIT’ is being observed by the community continually for the past one and half decade and considered inauspicios as it is a special day of mourning and prayer in remembrance of the over 900 innocent Kuki killed during the Kuki-Naga clash in the early nineties.  

It further stated that the timing of the TET is also not conducive as the ongoing economic blockade imposed in the hill areas would rendered the candidates hailing from the region incapable to reach the exam centres which are restricted in the capital city alone.

Moreover it suggested that it would be fair enough if location of exam centres should also include headquarters of the hill districts as well as isolated area such as Moreh and Kangpokpi for the convenience of multitude of candidates in the hill areas.
