Naga students’ federation (NSF) Wednesday hailed the Supreme Court verdict in favour of the state government on Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment (Second Amendment) Act, 2009 case.
The Supreme Court has given its ruling in favour of the state government in the law suit filed by Nagaland senior government employees’ welfare association (NSGEWA) against their retirement, thus ending the tussle between the state and its employees. The apex court gave the ruling Tuesday and dismissed the appeal of the petitioners NSGEWA against the implementation of the Retirement Act, which was passed in the Nagaland Assembly in July last year.
The NSF, in a press statement released by its president Mutsikhoyo Yhobu, congratulated the present government for “seriously” pursuing the case.
The federation said that this was an Act that was very dear to which it has been fighting for the past 20 years with all sincerity.
NSF also acknowledged the contributions and guidance of its senior leaders, with whose support, it could successfully take up the matter with the government. Meanwhile, the federation warned state machinery to initiate the process of recruitment in all fairness through open door competition. “NSF won’t be a silent spectator against all appointments made through backdoor and unfair channels,” it said.
EUUN on appointments
The educated unemployed union Nagaland (EUUN) president Achilo Thong Wednesday while stating that it has been fighting against backdoor appointment and age tempering in service for years, observed that finally justice was made in the form of passing of the Nagaland Retirement from Public Employment (Second Amendment) Act, 2009.
It, however, claimed that “unfortunately” the departments were attempting to exploit the resultant vacancies through backdoor appointments.
In connection with this, the union urged the government to revoke all the backdoor appointments and report all resultant vacancies to the employment department and advertise for open competition, saying it would not tolerate any kind of backdoor appointments.
