NSF caution state govt on ‘backdoor’ appointments

DIMAPUR, AUGUST 20 (MExN): The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) today cautioned the Nagaland state government with regard to “random backdoor appointment in all the departments.” A press note from the NSF said that the federation will not tolerate the “misuse of power by some individuals for their vested interest overlooking all merits.”


The NSF, it said, has “tirelessly worked against any form of corruptions and social vice since its inception.” It further acknowledged the federating units who have come out against backdoor appointments. While cleansing the menace of backdoor appointment in its entirety, the federation is working out for a holistic approach in framing out its modalities, the NSF said.


It asked all concerned departments to conduct examinations according to the norms thereby providing opportunity to all eligible candidates in a free and fair recruitment process. It also demanded requisition of all post that comes under the preview of the Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC). Stating the federation would not remain silent, the NSF cautioned that failure to “cancel all name appointed through backdoor may compel the federation to take up strong action against the concerned departments.”
