SHILLONG, Nov 11: The Civil Society Women’s Organization (CSWO) has demanded an inquiry into the Tuesday incident in Jowai that left 20 students and five police officials injured even as it expressed its indirect opposition on the regularization casual appointees in Kiang ngbah Government College.

Interestingly, the Kiang ngbah Government College Students Union (KNGCSU) has also listed the regularization of the 13 casual employees of the college as one of the demands. . In a statement on Wednesday, The President of the CSWO Agnes Khasiing stated , “We condemn the incident which has put at risk, students and government servants.”

“The CSWO demands an inquiry into the sudden attack, how such attacks from both sides were initiated and who started the attack and to also book them as per law as such instances should not be encouraged putting life of students, personnel and government servants at risk”, Agnes Kharshiing stated.

The CSWO also urged all the Heads of Departments in the State of Meghalaya to immediately stop payment to all staff who were not appointed through proper procedures of rule, appointed illegally, or through Nepotism and book the officials responsible for corruption, as such occurrence should not be carried out in future, under garb of certain demands, where the illegal entrants into government service, would start demanding for their rights.

“Regularizing of backdoor appointee should not at all be encouraged as this leaves many aspiring candidates without a job for which time after time they are buying challan to honestly apply for a job which is already filled up” asserted the CSWO leader besides threatening to call a public meeting and to move a PIL against those responsible for backdoor appointees in the State government.
