Dimapur, November 12: The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF), while welcoming the move of the state Government inviting applications for the post of Chairman and members of Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB), said that the Government should practice total transparency in the process of recruiting the Chairman and members of NSSB.
In a press release, NSF president, Ninoto Awomi and general secretary, Liremo R Kikon reminded the state Government that the demand for setting up of NSSB came at the backdrop of the rampant corruption, backdoor appointment and other malpractices prevailing in the recruitment process to various government jobs in the state.
The Federation appealed to the state Government to put in place a robust system wherein only officers with proven track record of expertise, integrity and morality throughout their career are on-boarded to NSSB.
Stating that until a group of incorruptible officers are constituted to form the board members, the very purpose of NSSB will be defeated, the federation unapologetically viewed that equal job opportunity must be provided to everyone and that only deserving candidates are recruited through NSSB.
The NSF further reiterated its earlier appeal to the Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC) to ensure that the long pending prelims results of Nagaland Combined Civil Services examination 2019 are released without any further delay, stating that uncertainty over the outcome of the examination which was conducted in November 2019 has been the reason for much anguish and frustration to those aspiring candidates.
“The delay tactic been adopted by the commission while taking the excuse of the COVID-19 pandemic shall prove counterproductive in the face of the soaring unemployment amongst the youths of the state,” it said and appealed to the NPSC to issue notification for NCCSE 2020 at the earliest as the future of the students’ and youth community cannot be compromised due to reason which is beyond anyone’s control.
