Advocate Mayangtemjen Tuesday said Chakhesang Public Organization (CPO) litigation filed in Guwahati High Court on job reservation quota was related to NPSC 2008 examination and not the LDA cum computer assistants’ exam.
This revelation comes against the backdrop of NSF expressing dismay over delay in declaration of results for LDA cum computer assistants examination held October 2 last and subsequent statement of Nagaland chief secretary that results were ready but awaiting clearance from Guwahati High Court. Talking to Nagaland Post over phone, Mayangtemjen said as CPO has not filed any case in the Guwahati High Court regarding LDA cum computer assistants’ examination, the government could file an application in the High Court to declare the results of the same.
Pointing out that CPO’s litigation in High Court was on NPSC 2008 exam and had no link with the LDA cum computer assistants’ exam, the advocate stated that the latter had nothing to do with the CPO litigation, and the state government could announce the results, he added. As per the chief secretary’s notification dated September 9, 2010, the interview for LDA cum computer exam and its results were to be completed before October 2010, however three months have lapsed and the government is yet to declare the results.
CSU Reacts: Chakhesang Students’ Union (CSU) Tuesday reacted strongly to state chief secretary Lalthara’s statement which appeared in a local daily on January 29, alleging that it was “senseless and irresponsible”, inciting “communal strain”.

CPO had filed PIL to derive proper and legal interpretation of law on the policy of government’s job reservation from the Court.
CSU questioned the CS as to how he could, without considering general facts and figures, say that Chakhesangs have been given fair treatment and were no longer backward as they have advanced in all spheres of life, without considering general facts and figures.
It alleged that the chief secretary’s statements indicated individual interest rather than an official one as it contradicted the expert committee’s findings, which was under cabinet consideration.
CSU asserted it would welcome the chief secretary to “personally visit and witness for further proof and realization”, stating he might apprise the Chakhesang community as to which fairness he was talking about and what benefits the government had extended to it besides 33% job reservation.
Meanwhile, CSU also questioned what “prompted” the state government to “segregate and isolate” Chakhesangs from other backward tribes of Nagaland while giving relaxation in the recent recruitment of teachers.
