NCSA announces mass casual leave from Oct. 3

Kohima, Sep. 28 (EMN): The Nagaland Civil Services Association (NCSA) has announced that its members will go on a ‘mass casual leave’ from Oct. 3 onwards.
A press release from NCSA president Kevekha Kevin Zehol and NCSA action committee convener Mhabemo T Yanthan stated that the association decided this in a meeting held on Sep. 27. It informed that all the NCS officers posted in different districts will converge at Kohima. “This has been necessited to deliberate on certain matters related to the Service,” the NCSA stated.
While the association’s press release did not divulge on the reason behind the protest, a source who did not wish to be named, informed that the call for agitation arose from political apathy as well as political decision towards induction of non-NCS persons to various posts in the government organisational structure that are supposed to be held by NCS officers. Also, it has been learnt that few posts which have been lying vacant since 2016 were yet to be filled, even after the passage of almost a year. “The NCSA has been pursuing the matter with the state government and had also issued several representations to the authorities in the past”, the source said, adding that, apparently there has not been any positive outcome from the powers that be, which could have pushed the association to come up with the decision to call for a ‘mass casual leave’ as a sign of resentment towards state government on the induction issue.
