The Nagaland government has approved setting up of the Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB).
Informing this, the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF), in a release, on Friday expressed happiness that chief minister Nephiu Rio and his council of ministers finally approved constitution of the NSSB.
The NSF said it was a long- cherished dream of thousands of aspiring students in the state to equal job opportunity and meritocracy in the process of selection.
It expressed optimism that the SSB will be implemented in letter and in spirit.
The federation recalled that the Public and Administrative Reform department first forwarded its recommendation on the NSSB to the Cabinet in 1995, which was pursued by the Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation Nagaland and Public Service Aspirants of Nagaland.
However, it did not matarialise due to the “weak political will of the time”, it said.
The federation conveyed its gratitude to the state government for its genuine concern towards the student community and the youths for having embarked on a historic crossroads of the state.
