Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) Friday said while it was “highly anticipating” that department of agriculture would do justice to all and be transparent, during the recruitment to various posts under extension reform scheme (ATMA), “unfortunately (or fortunately)” deprived “our people” and fellow Nagas.
ENSF’s open letter to APC and chairman IDWG (ATMA) and director department of agriculture, claimed that the department declared selected candidate no.18 under block technology manager, whose name was not even in the applicant lists furnished by the department on March 4, 2011 to ENSF.
According to ENSF, the only candidate from eastern Nagaland for the post of DPD having M.Sc in bio informatics was rejected after the interview stating that his qualification was not agri-allied.
Maintaining that candidate had enquired prior to registration and the department too verified his documents, the federation asked: “then why was he not rejected before interview? And why was he allowed to sit for the interview? Why he was made to wait for the interview if he was to be rejected after interview due to qualification? Is it for time passé?”
It also expressed surprise whether all the selected candidates were agri allied.
Also, stating that it took note of the general condition no.5, whereby first preference was offered to local candidates having proficiency in local dialects in all categories, the ENSF said: “sadly, since none of our people were selected (25% job reservation had vanished in thin air as always) in the posts of DPD and BTM, the selected fellow Naga brothers and sisters may be fluent in our eastern Nagas’ dialects.”
ENSF asserted that for how long should they continue to remain subjugated inhumanely in the name of various “man-made technical and conditions” which were meant entirely to deprive them by various government agencies.
The federation also said eastern Nagas have to rethink, whether they would continue to be discriminated knowingly or fight for their rights, if such discrepancies were occurring even in open advertisement.
Meanwhile, the ENSF has summoned one Ram Saran Sharma, reportedly appointed as driver cum mechanic under KVK Kuthur, Tuensang, to its office, Tuensang on March 9 at 11 a.m. with all relevant documents.
According to ENSF, the person had never reported to his posting place since till date but was drawing his salary.
The federation said it had even enquired about this issue with the joint-director Agri and in-charge of KVK, but was “bluntly” torld that Sharma was attached with the department.
The federation said if he failed to appear it would take any course of action which Sharma and joint director agri and the department will be held responsible.
