Minister in-charge Law Ampareen Lyngdoh on Wednesday assured to examine the demand to rectify the decision of the government to prepare the reservation roster retrospectively.
“We will study the matter and we will take suggestions on board but how much these suggestions will actually be feasible for implementation is yet to be seen,” Lyngdoh said.
A delegation of the Hynniewtrep Youth Council (HYC) had met her and submitted a memorandum demanding the state government to rectify its Office Memorandum (OM) which stated that the reservation roster should be prepared retrospectively. The HYC had termed the OM as “illegal”.
Lyngdoh said she will not comment any further on the issue.
She said, “I am happy that interaction took place because the government should not be seen as a government that is resisting valuable interaction of this nature on this matter.”
When asked, the minister said indulging in communalization of the implementation of the roster system will not be allowed. She assured, “We are a government by the people and for the people and it is in the interest of the people that decision will be taken”.
“And to my information and knowledge the matter is now being reviewed. Government departments are now engaging in the collection of data. It is humungous task. The last order was out sometime in the month of May 2022 and it has taken the government departments so long yet there are still many government departments that have not completed this exercise,” she said.
