Chakhesang Public Organisation (CPO) has regretted the delay in the declaration of NPSC results caused due to a PIL filed by it at the Gauhati High Court challenging the report of the Committee on Reservation for Backward Tribes. CPO said it was compelled to approach the Court when several public representations and democratic protest failed to yield any positive result to address their grievances. It said that the government notification dated July 23, 2008 had “abruptly reduced” the percentage of backward tribe job reservation to the three backward tribes. It placed the Chakhesang tribe into an undefined status besides stripping them from all the benefits provided to BTs and backward regions in the state of Nagaland such as Backward Region Grant fund (BRGF), Border Area fund and various backward alleviation packages provided through DUDA. CPO said it was “simply” seeking for a clear definition to the status and “legitimate rights” of the Chakhesang tribe as provided by law.
