NVCO flays cabinet’s failure to review regularisation of MOs

DIMAPUR, JUN 20 (NPN) | Publish Date: 6/20/2020 1:00:42 PM IST

Nagaland Voluntary Consumers’ Organisation (NVCO) has termed as “unfortunate and shameful” the June 19, 2020 cabinet meeting that failed to review the regularisation of 27 contingency Medical Officer (MO) posts, which it said was “a clear case of backdoor appointment, discrimination, nepotism and highly unconstitutional.”

NVCO through its press & media cell questioned the state government whether present invitation for filling up of the existing vacancies of 36 posts of Medical Officer/Junior Specialist on contingency basis for a period of 12 months would again be regularised by cabinet totally ignoring the terms and conditions of the original advertisement? 

NVCO reminded that the Gauhati High Court Kohima Bench had on August 3, 2018 directed the state government not to appoint and regularise services of employees who had completed three years of continuous service on contract/ad-hoc basis. NVCO said the cabinet decision to regularise serving contractual and contingency medical officers (MO) amounted to contempt of court. 

NVCO has, therefore, asked the cabinet to review/revoke the regularisation of 19 serving contractual and 27 contingency (MO), failing which it could be compelled to approach the Court.
