RPP files PIL against State DPAR’s notification

Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, AUGUST 31: The Rising People’s Party (RPP) has filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL), before the Kohima Bench of Gauhati High Court, against Nagaland Government’s July 16 notification empowering 76 Departments to conduct the ‘departmental examinations’ and make appointments.

In a press release issued on Tuesday, the party stated that the State Government has turned a deaf ear to its earlier request to revoke the notification and operationalise the Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB) with immediate effect.
“Thus the RPP had no other option but to file a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) against the said DPAR notification and for the functioning of NSSB since the Government notification is solely aimed at justifying rampant backdoor appointments”, it stated.
The PIL was filed on August 31.
“It is the demand of the Rising People’s Party that the said vacant number of Posts be advertised and filled only through the NPSC and NSSB recruitment exams in order to facilitate the practice of fair and just recruitment process. The RPP reassures its stand with the educated unemployed youths in the fight against this menacing system called backdoor appointment and appeals to all the right thinking citizens and civil society organisations to stand up for the future of Nagaland”, it added.
