NEET selection: ANCSU wants proper verification

Expressing dissatisfaction with the verification of documents of doubtful candidates (non-indigenous) seeking admission in MBBS/BDS and other professional courses, the All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) has appealed to the state government to verify doubtful candidates through electoral voters list of 1963 and not to allot seats to such candidates before proper verification was done.
In a press release, ANCSU vice president and grievances committee chairman, Benjong Longchar, stated that following NEET 2018 results declaration, the union had repeatedly appealed to the director of technical education to meticulously verify the documents of doubtful candidates (non-indigenous).
He said the union had also sought the intervention of chief minister, minister for higher and technical education, health minister and commissioner Nagaland.
ANCSU vice president said that the union was hoping for a thorough verification after the department of technical sent the list of doubtful candidates to the concerned district administration. However, he said the union was dismayed that some district administrations have not verified properly as appealed. 
“ANCSU is not satisfied/convinced by the verification done by the concerned district administrations,” Longchar said.
He claimed that some district administrations were randomly issuing ST and Indigenous certificates to non-indigenous people of Nagaland without proper verification of documents and not following the government standing orders and office memorandums. 
Longchar said ANCSU has learnt that the commissioner Nagaland has directed the district administrations to re-verify the supported documents of those candidates.
In this regard, the ANCSU has appealed to the responsible authority to take the matter seriously since it concerned the future generation of Nagas.
ANCSU cautioned that it would initiate its own course of action if any seat was allotted to non indigenous people of Nagaland. 
Also, affirming that it would not accept any kind of manipulation or loopholes in the process of selection of candidates, the union reminded non-indigenous candidates of NEET 2018 not to complicate in the process of selection. “If any seat is allotted to non-indigenous candidate, the concerned shall be called back,” ANCSU said.
