Dimapur, February 10: Following reports that about 1200 new recruits against various battalions and police set up will be coming for training at Chumoukedima town under PTS and NAPTC respectively from February 14, the Naga Tribal Union Chumoukedima Town (NTUCT) has decided that except 208 candidate who were selected through an open recruitment rally conducted during November 15, 16 & 18, 2019, no other candidates will be allowed to take part in the upcoming training.
In a statement, NTUCT informed that accommodation facilities for about 1200 new recruits have already been arranged as per physical verification. “However, the NTUCT on behalf of the general public has decided to thwart such a training to take place indefinitely,” it said.
The statement jointly issued by NTUCT president Lhousito Khro, vice president Akum, assistant secretary Akato, cultural secretary Y Asaba Yim, information secretary Hukheshe Kiba, finance secretary Kenneth Woch and treasurer Enibemo Jami said the concerned authority must satisfactorily justify as to when and where such a large majority of the recruits were selected through an open recruitment rally.
“Clarify and justify with facts and figures, official references of post advertisements for public consumption,” it demanded.
Stating that it has nothing against our youth who were selected, but any backdoor appointment shall not be allowed, the union also made it clear that it has no grudge or any ill-feeling against any authority, but is firmly standing to oppose violation of norms and established system.
Appealing to the Naga public and NGOs to extend solidarity in its fight against nepotism and all unfair means prevailing in the society, the union also requested the Government of Nagaland and the concerned authority to put on hold the proposed training indefinitely until the confusion is settled in order to avoid any ugly consequences in the days to come.
