Eastern Nagaland College Students’ Union (ENCSU) has expressed strong opposition to the appointment of seven posts out of 120 new post creation under the Higher Education (HE) department. In a press note, ENCSU president M Longre Chang and general secretary Wangnei C Jessuhu questioned the manpower rationalization committee (MRC) and HE department on what grounds those seven new appointments were made. ENCSU also accused MRC and HE department of “manipulation” and indulging in “corruption” by depriving Backward Tribe (BT) job reservation policy. The union described as “illogical and baseless” the higher education directorate statement dated November 16, 2018 that recent re-designation of posts of officers in the directorate was not a case of fresh appointment.

Asserting “enough is enough”, ENCSU warned the authority not to play “deceive game” towards the BT of Nagaland. 

In this regard, ENCSU has demand that the higher education department immediately “proclaim null and void” all the seven appointments.

Further, ENCSU accused the responsible minister and the state government of being insincere and not checking and monitoring the job reservation policy.

Reminding of reservation policy for BT which was passed and enacted in the Assembly in 1977, the union said that Governor of Nagaland had in a notification directed that 25% of all categories in both Gazetted and non-Gazetted posts under the Government of Nagaland shall be reserved for the persons belonging to the six Eastern Backward Tribes of Nagaland. ENCSU also reminded of the latest Government Notification on Reservation for the BT dated September 4, 2015. 

ENCSU has, therefore, demanded the responsible department to strictly adhere to the policy and implement 25% reservation in the appointment of 120 posts. The posts include two Joint Directors, three Vice Principal, two Deputy Director, three Assistant Director and 68 Assistant Professor during 2018-19, and 42 posts for the year 2019-20. 

Besides, ENCSU has urged the responsible departments to maintain a separate register for effective implementation of the reservation for the BT to ensure transparency and accountability.

Insisting that the state government and the department strictly implement BT reservation “without any lapses and deprivation”, the ENCSU cautioned that in the event the department failed to adhere to the notification/office memorandum, the “department itself should know that by its action it invites its own situation.”
