AYC hits out at MPSC over interview

By Correspondent

TURA, Nov 29 - The Achik Youth Council (AYC) today hit out at the Meghalaya Public Service Commission (MPSC) over the cancellation and rescheduling of viva voce and interview to various positions in several PHCs and CHCs of the State on the pretext of increasing the number of vacancies.

The NGO termed the abrupt decision as unethical, and also sought answers on what had transpired that lead to the cancellation and rescheduling of the interview.

�The official notice states that the interview process stands cancelled and this is a huge blow to the aspiring candidates. We feel the revocation of the advertisement came in a sudden manner and the way the Commission declared the advertisement confirming it as cancelled and then again tendering the same for a fresh re-advertisement, goes against the interest and rights of the candidates,� said assistant general secretary Maxbirth G Momin.

The AYC alleged the decision lacks transparency with seemingly malafide intentions and a policy to deprive meritorious and eligible candidates in the recruitment process.

�The eligible and non-eligible candidates have already been short-listed and notified in the official website of the Commission. In the name of merely extending the number of vacant posts from 50 to 60, the contentious decision for re-advertising has led to an atmosphere of suspicion of political interference. Merit may not stand a chance,� said AYC general secretary Shoshon Sangma. �Instead of cancelling the advertisement, the Commission could have kept the posts undisturbed and a new advertisement could have been put up for the additional posts,� he added.

Speaking about the sad state of health infrastructure in the PHCs and CHCs of the State, the AYC felt the recruitment needed to be fast tracked instead of being delayed.
