Dimapur: The Rising People’s Party (RPP), a political party based in Nagaland, said it has been receiving numerous complaints from desperate parents that some schools in Dimapur and Kohima are coercing students to take COVID -19 vaccination. “Again, some are being threatened that they will not be allowed to sit for offline tests/exams if they are not vaccinated,” the RPP alleged today.
The Nagaland based political party then said that to take or not to take vaccination is an individual choice. It further said that no schools or colleges can disallow unvaccinated students to sit for exams/tests. “To do such would be illegal,” the RPP added.
The RPP then claimed that it already has the names of the educational institutions trying to actively implement the mandatory vaccination policy of the state government. The RPP then requested such institutions to desist from unlawful activities.
“In case our appeal falls on deaf ears, the RPP will have no choice but to file police complaints,” the party cautioned.
The RPP then appealed to all the unvaccinated students to appear for their offline tests/exams without fear of persecution from the school/college authorities. The RPP also said that it will stand for such persecuted students till the end.
The party then requested the parents of all such “persecuted” students to contact the grievances cell of the party at 7005633696.
