Nagalim: NSF Federal Assembly at Historic Massacre Site

The Naga Students Federation (NSF) will be holding its 4th Federal Assembly on September 6, 2006 at Matikhru, near Meluri, a historic place in Nagaland where in 1960 the Punjab Regiment massacred villagers of Matikhru
Important issues would be taken up for which all federating units and subordinate bodies have been asked to attend without fail. The Pochury Students Union (PSU) is taking the pleasure to organize the assembly in the best interest of the Pochuris in particular and the Nagas in general, an NSF intimation issued through its Speaker, WH Maring, stated. The assembly has been scheduled coinciding with the observation of Black September by the Pochury community. On September 6, 1960 the 16th Punjab Regiment of the Indian Armed Forces under the command of Major Kanger posted at Kanjan village committed inhuman atrocities by massacring villagers of Matikhru, the NSF reminded. The NSF officials will be moving from its office on the 5th September morning around 7am. All the concern student bodies are hereby requested to reach the NSF office before 7am or move from wherever they are to reach the venue early the NSF intimated, wishing the PSU a successful hosting of the Federal Assembly.
