SHILLONG, Nov 24: Peeved at the delay in announcement of the recruitment results, police job aspirants will hold a peaceful procession from Malki point to Kiang Nangbah statue near Civil Hospital on November 30 demanding early declaration of the results of the interview conducted to fill more than 1000 vacant posts in the Meghalaya Police.
Talking to reporters, one of the aspirants Bapura Rynghang said that this will be third such protest over the delay in announcement of the results.
“We demand the state government to announce the results within this year,” Rynghang said.
He informed they have applied for the police post since 2019. Although the Physical Efficiency Test was conducted in November 2021, the written test examinations were conducted in February 2022.
On being reminded that the state government had earlier clarified that the delay was due to the roster system, Rynghang said that roster system is not their concern but the announcement of the results is.
Rynghang has also expressed his concern on reports that 70 percent of the vacant posts in the police department will be reserve for the Garo candidates as per the reservation policy while only 20 percent is for the Khasi-Jaintia which is not justified.
“We demand that the reservation of the vacant posts should be 50 per cent for both Garo and Khasi-Jaintia,” he added.
Reportedly, nearly 3,000 police job aspirants are eagerly waiting for the results.
