Kohima, January 08 (NEx): The Naga Students Federation (NSF) in a press release on Thursday, reiterated its earlier stand for a ‘complete ban of all departmental examinations for recruitment to Group C Posts’ until Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB) is implemented in the state and that all existing vacancies must be requisitioned through NSSB only.

NSF also appealed the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Nagaland Neiphiu Rio and his cabinet colleagues to fast track the process of implementing NSSB in the State.

The Federation said that it is appalled at the blatant disregard for sentiments of the federation by the office of Chief Engineer, Public Health Engineering Department, (PHED), Government of Nagaland, by issuing a press release for conducting the departmental exam for recruitment to various group C-posts on January 13, 2021.

The federation appealed to the department in question to refrain from going ahead with the proposed departmental examination by respecting the aspirations of the youths and students’ community while also aiding the push for promoting meritocracy in the government job market. The federation said that it shall be compelled to take up action it deems fit if the concerned department and all other department take up any action contravention of this public appeal.

Further, the federation appealed to all the aspiring candidates to kindly cooperate with the federation and abstain themselves from the proposed departmental examination in their collective bid to uphold and protect the future of the youths and students’ community.

‘An amicable solution to the issue of reservation and reservation policies, which has been stalling the NSSB must be brought out at the earliest for the overall benefit of the youth and students’ community in the State as indefinitely withholding the NSSB will proof detrimental to the State as a whole, stated NSF.
