The State Police today denied the ENSF claim that the 25% job reservations for the six tribes was not implemented in the recruitment for the post of Havilder and ABSI for the 6th Indian Reserve (Mahila) Battalion. “We’re religiously following the laid down rules of the government” said DGP K.Kire and rubbished the claims and demand of the ENSF. He asserted that the 33% reservation for the backward tribe including 25% for the six backward tribe of the Eastern Nagas and 8% for the other backward tribe (Chakhesang and Zeliang) was strictly implemented in the recruitment of 82 posts of Havildars and 21 posts of ABSI for the Mahila IR Battalions. “If so necessary, the PHQ can publish even the names of those recruited against the 25% reservation from the six tribes,” he added. Similarly, state home minister, Imkong L Imchen also rubbished the allegations of the ENSF and asserted that the reservation was strictly implemented in the recruitment. “They should have checked and talked,” he said. Interestingly, while the ENSF demanded strict implementation of the 25% reservation in the recruitment of only the Havilders and ABSI, it was found that in the ongoing recruitment for the posts of constable, the six tribes enjoyed 30.62% of the total posts. As per the government order on the ongoing recruitment of constable for the Mahila battalions, altogether 640 posts of constables are sanctioned which are distributed and reserved for all the different tribes in Nagaland. As per the document available, altogether 196 posts of constables for the Mahila Bn were given to the six tribes including; Konyak- 72, Phom-37, Sangtam-30, Yimchunger- 27, Chang-17 and Khiamniungan -13. Senior police official revealed that the distribution of post for the constable was made on the basis of the 1991 census as the state had rejected the 2001 census. The system was adopted since the recruitment of the first Indian Reserved Battalion (9 IR Bn) was raised in the state. There is a total strength of 1039 sanctioned posts for the Mahila IR Bn starting from the Commanding Officer (CO) to the lowest Non Combatant (NC) force. The set up of a Battalion consists of Combatant Force, Non Combatants (NC) force, Signal/Wireless, Motor Transport (MT), Medical Staffs and Ministerial staffs.
