Expressing dismay over threats of dire consequences issued to three officers-chief secretary ,addl.chief secretary and Commissioner & secretary School Education and DIG(Vigilance) heading the SIT probing the bogus appointment of teachers- by some leaders of underground outfits, the NSF has reiterated that it will not “tolerate any kind of interference from them either in the form of threat or diplomacy in this kind of matter”. The NSF, through a release issue by its president Imchatoba Imchen further warned “ the Naga national groups to desist from intimidation on this kind of matter as those persons responsible for creating the present mess in the education department should be booked and awarded an exemplary punishment.” Taking strong exception to the “few individuals” using the names of “Naga resistant group” to intimidate the officials and investigating agencies assigned to probe the appointment of bogus teachers, the NSF said it was a clear example of some using the name of “Naga National Government to meet their selfish ends.” The NSF affirmed that human resource development was the most fundamental feature for society’s growth for which a high standard recruitment policy was needed to appoint teachers. It urged upon the government to streamline the recruitment policy for teachers which should be done through the NPSC so as to prevent bogus appointments in the department. Adds NPN: Meanwhile as reported earlier, the state government at a recent cabinet meeting, had taken serious note of the threats on the lives of the two senior bureaucrats and the DIG(Vigilance) heading the SIT probe team. Besides directing the SIT to leave no stone unturned to unearth the entire scam, the cabinet also directed police to provide high level security to the officers as well as SIT. According to the report, the threats on the officers were issued by some functionaries of the NSCN(K) and the NSCN(I-M). The issue did not figure in the recent assembly session except the question on the number of graduate teachers appointed on ad hoc basis. With the NSF coming out strongly against the threats for an impartial and full probe; what remains to be seen is the response of the civil societies supposedly concerned with human rights and peace and especially the stand of the teaching community, both government and private on this issue.
