The final hearing on the public interest litigation on reservation policy has been fixed on February 14, sources from Guwahati High Court said Wednesday. Speaking to Nagaland Post Wednesday, chief secretary Lalthara said the government had filed a special application (affidavit) to the Guwahati High Court to declare the result of the LDA cum computer assistant in the month of November 2010. He said that the state government had not received any reply from the court.
Lalthara also said the state government has submitted a summary statement of the result and also an analysis on the reservation policy to the hon’ble Guwahati High Court. Commenting on the job reservation policy, he said that the government had implemented the reservation policy for the six backward tribes as per the recommendation of the cabinet based on the extensive study by Committee on Reservation which was tabled in April 2010. He stated that reservation policy was based on the criteria of backwardness in socio, economy and education.
Meanwhile, government advocate, Gauhati High Court, Kohima bench, N.M Jamir in press note clarified that the PIL filed by the CPO regarding NPSC result was pending before the principal seat at Gauhati High Court.
He further asserted that the state government can declare the result of the LDA cum Computer Assistant only after taking leave from court by filling an application. Stating that his earlier statement should not be misconstrued in any way, Jamir also asserted that his statement was in tune with the statement given by the chief secretary on the matter.
Govt. rejects advocate’s comment
Rejecting advocate Mayangtemjen’s statement that CPO’s litigation filed in High Court on job reservation quota was related to NPSC 2008 exam and not LDA cum computer assistants’ exam, the state government today said the CPO had filed a miscellaneous petition to their main PIL No.9/2010, wherein in para 13 they had specifically sought court’s intervention to suspend advertisements issued for filling up various vacancies for LDA-cum-computer assistants as well as NPSC recruitments.
In a statement joint secretary, to state government Chubasangla Anar said the court had in its judgment dated October 4, 2010 directed the government not to “finalise the selection and act upon the same without leave of this court”. According to Anar, the interview/selection process for the LDA-cum-computer assistants’ examination was completed November 26, 2010. However, as required by the High Court, the government advocate was asked on November 30, 2010 to file a miscellaneous petition requesting the court’s permission to declare the results for the said examination. “The miscellaneous petition is yet to be heard/disposed off by the court,” Anar stated and added “irresponsible and provocative statement” by advocate “aimed at misguiding the public is highly objectionable, unfortunate, undesirable and deplorable.”
CPO Responds: Meanwhile, the Chakhesang Public Organisation (CPO) has expressed surprise over state government action which filed a miscellaneous case praying for vacating the restriction order and a permission to finalize the recruitment processes.
