The present BJP-led government should never come to a compromise concerning the land ownership and nomenclature of NSU. The state government may face unwanted consequences if the government compromises in connection with the land ownership and nomenclature of NSU. The state has a Rule of Law and the issue can be solved at Court, it added.

It further appealed that other than Konsakhul, Joint Tribe Student Association (JTSA) should not be involved in the issue.
