KOHIMA, April 9 - Around 110 selected candidates of Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA) in Nagaland on Friday launched an indefinite sit-in protest seeking appointment as secondary teachers.
The candidates launched the stir demanding �immediate issuance of their appointment order� outside RMSA Nagaland Mission Director office here yesterday.
The candidates said they had sat for the examination against an advertisement for recruitment of over 900 secondary teachers under RMSA. The written examination was held on May 24, 2014 and result declared on June 27. The viva voce was held in July 2015 and its result declared on November 30, 2015.
Thereafter, the Department issued appointment letters to over 600 selected candidates while 111 are yet to receive any appointment letter from the authorities, they said.
The candidates reportedly submitted a memorandum to Mission Director, RMSA Nagaland, on March 14 and met him personally on March 28, during which the Mission Director asked them to wait till second week of April, 2016.
�We will resort to hunger strike if the authorities do not respond to our call within the next few days,� a candidate said. MD, RMSA Nagaland, could not be contacted while officials said he has gone to Delhi for some official engagement. � PTI
