Dimapur, May 1 (EMN): Continuing its pitch against what the party seeks to present as a ‘problem’, the Nagaland Congress on Monday issued another press release highlighting the number of “non locals” employed by the state’s department of power.
The party has already listed the number of “non local” employees working under the state’s department of police and PWD (H). In all the occasions, the party has cited RTI findings.
“Based on RTI information furnished by Office of Chief Engineer: Transmission and Generation, Nagaland, Kohima, NLC is reproducing the facts and figures of regularized, non-regularized and contractual appointments in Power department (as of 8/10/2016).

Percentage of non local employees in power department:
 37% of total employees under EE Peren Division
 34% of total employees under EE (E) Dimapur Div.
 26% of total employees under EE (Trans) Dimapur Div.
 21% of total employees under EE (Trans) Kohima Div.
 21% of total employees under GEN Kohima
 21% of total employees under EE (E) Mon Div.
 21% of total employees under EE (E) Changtonya Div.
 20% of total employees under Hydro Elect. Kohima
 19% of total employees under EE (E) Wokha Div.
 19% of total employees under Likimro Hydro Elect. Project
 17% of total employees under Mokokchung (T)
 17% of total employees under EE (E) Kohima Div.

Percentage on Nature of Appointment:
 2% of total appointments are N/A
 15% of total appointments through NPSC & DSC
 30% of appointment on promotion basis
 53% of appointments by department
It stated that the department concerned did not mention a single case of direct appointment, which it claimed, was a blatant lie.

On the whole:
 19% of total employees in Power department in the state are non locals.
 Non locals are 3rd highest employees in this department.
 Apart from 15% of total fresh appointment done through NPSC & DSC, all appointments (save promotion) reportedly done by department was plainly direct appointment or backdoor appointment.
“The silence of government or department, be it Police department or PWD (H) is explicit acceptance of the stated facts, thereby leaving no scope to further substantiate those with more empirical evidences. But silence will not acquit the guilty or appease the exploited sections in any manner. Whether or not government or concerned department react responsibly, NLC will keep coming out with more facts at least for citizens to react responsibly before it is too late,” it stated.
