Dimapur, June 30: The Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (ACAUT) and the Public Service Aspirants of Nagaland (PSAN) has clarified that it had filed the writ petition against illegal and rampant backdoor appointments to 706 posts which fall under the purview of NPSC. Hence, it said the ad-hoc teachers were not in any way impleaded in the case by ACAUT & PSAN.
Reacting to the All Nagaland School Teachers’ Association (ANSTA) seeking clarification from the two organizations on the writ petition, the ACAUT & PSAN in a statement said that W.P. (C) No. 145 (k)/17 is subjudice before the Court and if need be ANSTA is at liberty to seek clarification from the Court and not from ACAUT & PSAN.
The statement also allegedthat certain individuals and officials are trying to make ACAUT & PSAN a scapegoat in the current imbroglio for their own vested interests while playing hide and seek with their employees despite there being remedial measures to tackle the issue, inside and outside the court.
The statement pointed out that the State Government is the employer of ad-hoc teachers, and not ACAUT & PSAN and it is proper to seek redressal from the Government instead of raising questions against ACAUT & PSAN for filing the writ petition, which needs no approval from any third party.
“Recruitment of teachers is done by the Department of School Education with their own conditions of service. Therefore, it is upto the department/aggrieved party to seek alternative legal remedy, if so desired, as per law instead of a third party unnecessarily targeting ACAUT & PSAN,” it added.
