Compassionate appointment in state police | Aggrieved candidates on stir, demand immediate appointments

By Staff Reporter

ITANAGAR, Feb 27: The aggrieved candidates whose appointments are yet to be made in the police department on compassionate ground. have demanded the department to absorb the remaining at the earliest.

To express their grievances, the aggrieved candidates on Monday staged a sit-in protest at Tennis court of IG Park here, which would continue till March 1, next.

Talen Padung, a protestor, said that since 2019, there are 183 candidates whose appointment is yet to be made in the police department. Now which has increased to 359 candidates in 2022.

The district level scrutiny of the candidates and submission of reports has been already done. However, the recruitment of the candidates was postponed on August 10 last in view of changes in recruitment guidelines, he added.

“Since 2019, we have been waiting now how long it will take to initiate the recruitment process,” rued the candidates.

During the protest dharna in the year 2019, Home Minister Bamang Felix told the candidates that 27 posts have been sanctioned and the same would be appointed. Where is the appointment letter? questioned the candidates.

The added that at least posts which are lying vacant should have been appointed rather than lip service.

They also claimed that a total of 508 candidates have applied for appointment on compassionate grounds in 2019, out of which 325 candidates were recruited thereby leaving 183 posts left out.

On many occasions the left-out candidates have submitted a representation to the Director General of Police (DGP) for immediate recruitment of the sanctioned posts, but their pleas were not honoured, they lamented.

Reminding the home department to adhere to the assurance given to the aggrieved candidates, they said the concept of compassionate appointment is to provide relief to the family members by appointing them in service, but police family members are being deprived of their rights.
