Aspirants serve 7-day ultimatum in APSSB fiasco

By Staff Reporter

ITANAGAR, Feb 27: The aspirants of Arunachal Pradesh Service Selection Board (APSSB) served seven-day ultimatum to state Govt to issue order to conduct LDC/JSA exams fresh whose failure would force them to launch a protest march on March 6 next.

They gave the threatening during a press conference in Arunachal Press Club here on Thursday, saying the APSSB had which was conducted exams on February 2 for those posts whose results tuned out to be scandal.

Expressing strong resentment for not arresting all officials associated with APSSB fiasco, the APSSB Aspirant Committee for Justice and Reformation (ICJR) demanded for immediate arrest and suspension of A. C Verma, S. K Jain, G. S Meena, Tamune Miso and others.

ICJR convener Tadar Kaming Paji informed that The ICJR submitted a six-point memorandum to the chief minister office today demanding immediate arrest and suspension of above officers by invoking 56(j) of CSS rule, fresh conduct of UDC/store keeper and LDC/JSA exams, revamping APSSB and reviewing standard operating procedure (SOP), state award and a GoAP job for the whistleblower.

There should be no second thought in taking stern legal action against those officials, the ICJR said, demanded that officers like Verma, Jain and others should be treated at par with under secretary Kapter Ringu, who was arrested.

Those officers involved in APSSB job scandal should be asked to take voluntary retirement under clause 56 (j) of CSS rule, Paji said, adding that CM Pema Khandu being very vocal about taking stern action against any erring officers should act  so that no GoAP official would dare to indulge in such act in future.

Pointing out that arrest of Mongan Basar and Tame Tania have ascertained that both had upper hand in job scandal in connivance with the APSSB officials, they said that a thorough probe into all APSSB conducted exams  should be conducted and any candidate if found recruited though unfair means should be terminated.

While claiming that UDC Moli Basar, selected recently through APSSB, is the younger brother of arrested Mongam Basar and Tame Nanu is the brother of arrested Tame Tania, they did not rule out the possibility of these candidates selected through unfair means. Thus, they demand to soon conduct UDC exam again.

The SOP should be reviewed to reform and make recruitment process fast and fair and engaging consultants from Rajiv Gandhi University and NERIST to revamp the APSSB would be appreciated.

Appreciating the whistleblower, they said that state award should be given to persons without whom the whole job scandal would have gone unnoticed.

The ICJR would hold a protest march from DNGC to Raj Bhawan on March 6 next if the GoAP fails to fulfill its demands by March 5.
