Stating that the state government was not in a position to comply with the norms framed by the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) for recruitment of elementary teachers, the All Nagaland Pre-service Teachers’ Association (ANPSTA) has sought the intervention of the governor of Nagaland and the director, NCTE in the matter. ANPSTA president, Namdwa Kulimbe in a representation alleged that the Nagaland government never seriously took the issues raised by the trained personnel and kept on appointing the untrained to the newly created or posts caused by vacancy on any ground, despite repeated requests and press statements. It was pointed out that there were eight training institutes in the state having the capacity to produce 400 pre-service teachers. The ANPSTA also made mention of the recently advertised 268 posts of primary teachers where any 10+2 passed candidate could apply. The teachers said their request to the state government to make professional diploma as a requisite professional qualification for the posts was turned down even as there were 1044 trained unemployed members at hand. Stating that there were 1044 trained unemployed against 268 vacancies only, the ANPSTA asked as to “why 10+2 diploma in elementary education of diploma in PSTE could be stick at par with national norms (sic).” It said the issue of no untrained personnel at hand did not arise. The ANPSTA appealed the mentioned authorities to intervene and come to their rescue lest the vacancies fell at the hands of the state authority which would encourage the “desperate” citizens to take wrong steps instead of doing noble job.
