Claiming to have detected irregularities in the government advertisement calling for oral interview to the Group-D, Non-technical Group-C, ministerial posts that appeared in some local dailies on June 11, the NPCC has demanded that the interview be called off and re-advertisement be made after thorough rectification. NPCC threatened to take appropriate course of action as deemed fit for the interest of the younger generation, if the government failed to comply with its demands.
Condemning the advertisement, NPCC general secretary & member, media cell, Mughato Achumi said the motive of the advertisement was very clearly to give space for manipulation by the people in power and described it “a face saving exercise.” It said the advertisement was not only discriminatory in nature but also full of flaws.
The NPCC said since the interview was only oral it would allow free exercise of nepotism, favoritism by and other means of unfair practices by people in high places. It asked where merit would find its rightful place without written examination.
It was pointed out that the advertisement debarred an inspiring candidate from appearing in more than one department as the interview would be conducted for one or two day (s) only.
NPCC said the condition that only a candidate who was a resident in that particular district for vacancies against the department concerned was also “discriminatory.” “If this is so, why can’t interview for district level posts be conducted in the respective district headquarters and not in the directorates?” it asked.
The NPCC pointed out that no date of interview was notified in the advertisement and that it was also not mentioned when the date of interview would be notified later. It wondered as to what would be the fate of the candidates from far flung places if, as usual the government notify within a short time frame.
The NPCC also described it as “very tricky and an attempt to avoid wide publicity” since the advertisement appeared in one or two local papers only.
The state personnel and administrative reforms department had on Friday advertised 201 posts of LDA-cum-computer assistant in various directorates and district level offices.
