IMPHAL: The 2013 batch of Manipur Police constable waiting list candidates has urged the State government to absorb those candidates who were included in the waiting list notification approved on June 25, 2020 before December 15, 2020.
Addressing media persons at Manipur Press Club, Majorkhul, spokesperson Rohit Naorembam said that even though the state has kept in pending the decision due to Covid-19 pandemic, the candidates in the waiting list are requesting the concerned department to absorb them as soon as possible.
In any case, the candidates have shown their intention to push for their appointment and Rohit stated that if the State government does not take a favourable decision before December 15, 2020 those in the list will take up protests.
A representative from the hill areas among the waiting list candidate S. Ringmi claimed that the government on many occasions had absorbed candidates in the waiting list in similar recruitments, however the same has not been done for the 2013 batch.
He also affirmed the committee’s decision to take up strong protests and even call for bandhs.
On Friday,tThe Manipur Rifle (Male) Waiting List 2016 batch had threatened to start a strong agitation if the state government and home department fail to give an approval to the joining of 44 candidates within December 20, 2020.
The statement was made by the advisor of MR (Male) Waiting list 2016 batch Shivrati Maibam during a press meet held at Manipur Press Club on Friday.
Addressing media persons, Shivrati Maibam had drawn the attention of state government and home department to give the approval order for the joining of 44 candidates that were in the waiting list. He had said that the results of candidates in the waiting list was declared on June 25, 2020 and after ten days’ gap of result declaration, the verification process was completed, which took around 15 days. But unfortunately, the waiting list candidates have waited for around six months till now on but no action has been initiated till date regarding their absorption in the force.
He further appealed to the state government and home department to give the necessary approval in consideration of the suffering and difficulties being faced by the 44 candidates who are in the waiting list. If the state government and home department fail to take appropriate actions within the stipulated time, then a strong agitation will be enforced from the next morning, the group warned.
