Post Mortem

A govt that listens to the voice of the citizens

 Nagaland is a small state with a high literacy rate. With less job opportunities in the private sectors due to multiple reasons, it has become more or less like a compulsion specially for the educated unemployed to seek for government jobs. Despite the fact that the state government of Nagaland cannot provide jobs to each and everyone of them, however the sad reality is that the selection process for the suitable candidates has been compromised in many cases during the previous years. But, amidst the pandemic, the recent approval by the government to set up the Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB) for the recruitment of Group ‘C’ posts has instilled ‘Great Hope’ in the minds of the aspirants. It is now expected that aspiring candidates will no longer have to bear heavy expenditures, waste time and energy which were prevalent before. Most importantly, it is the hope of the people that backdoor appointments, nepotism and favouritism have become stories of the past. 

Apparently, the fight for SSB was not so easy. The people of Nagaland are so much indebted to the NSF, PSAN and ACAUT for their tireless effort in this struggle. Above all, being a democratic country, the citizens have every right to put up their demands or criticize or supplement the government. However, being the powers are vested in the hands of the elected representatives, it is their prerogative to either listen or ignore, but for the smooth functioning of the government as well as to realise its purpose for establishing peace, development and prosperity, people’s interest and opinion have to be taken on board.

Interestingly, this time, the action of the State government with regard to the approval for setting up of SSB is indeed historic and highly commendable. They have listened to the voice of the people, and thus their decision has brought hope in the minds of the aspirants, so also their parents and relatives who have been praying unceasingly for them, and even for that matter the upcoming generations as well. Still are we not thankful? Don’t they deserve appreciation? Lastly, it is our prayer that God will give wisdom to the government to select the right candidates for the post of the NSSB Chairman, Members and other officials.

God bless us, stay safe everyone.
