Says trgs being held as ‘refreshers course’ for the new recruits

Naga Tribal Union Chümoukedima Town (NTUCT) has expressed resentment over the lackadaisical attitude of the state government towards its demand for cancellation of alleged backdoor police appointments and withholding training for the recent backdoor appointees.

The union had demanded immediate cancellation of all such appointment orders in the larger interest of the aspiring educated unemployed Naga youth and withholding of trainings at district unit battalion headquarters till fair and fresh open recruitments were made.

However, NTUCT president Lhousito Khro and general secretary Longshi Lotha claimed that in spite of numerous appeals made to the government, the Police department had been conducting trainings as “refreshers course” for the newly-recruited police personnel, which is normally imparted to those who are already in service.

Stating that the mandatory period of training for any newly-recruited personnel was not less than nine months, NTUCT warned that if maintenance of law and order, peace and security in the state were handled by unqualified jawans lacking in complete training, this would be a big threat to public safety. Hence, it said any consequence arising thereof would have to be fully borne by the police department.

Expressing dismay over the apathetic attitude of the government on its demand, the union observed that the audacity of the department in continuing with the backdoor appointments and corruption demonstrated a sheer contempt.

NTUCT further reminded DGP to empathise with the genuine deserving educated unemployed Naga youth and ensure equality appointment as enshrined in fundamental rights under Art. 16 of the Constitution. The union urged DGP to come out clear on the action taken on the illegal backdoor appointments numbering 934 personnel, recruited without following the open recruitment process.

NTUCT asserted that they would firmly fight against corruption and would not under any circumstances allow any backdoor appointment, while insisting on transparency and strict compliances of established norms and rules.
