Reacting to the controversial appointments of over 900 police recruits, the Kohima Sümi Students’ Union (KSSU) Saturday said slammed the home department for “rampant backdoor appointment practice in its own department.”

In a KSSU president Benison V Shohe and assistant general secretary Tomika V Chophy appreciated the Naga Tribal Union Chümoukedima Town (NTUCT) for bringing out the fact in the public domain and affirmed that the union would go to any extent to stop corruption in the state.

Even as chief minister announced in the assembly that a committee would be set up to review the entire appointment system in the government, the KSSU stated that “mere lip service to create a committee” should not be “justification of the case.”

Claiming that excess appointment was going on in other departments also, the union called upon every concern citizen to condemn such act. KSSU stated that it was high time for the state government to curb corrupt practices before it was too late.

Meanwhile, KSSU stated several student bodies led by NSF have been demanding setting up Staff Selection Board (SSB), but to no avail thus far.

Expressing dismay that selection was not done on basis of merit but through unfair means, KSSU said that “malice practice” should be discontinued. It stated that creation of SSB would pave the way for aspirants who face many hurdles.
