Enraged candidates of Education(S) Multi-Tasking Staff (MTS) 2016 and 2018 batch on Wednesday tried to storm the chief minister’s bungalow decrying the authorities’ failure to declare the written test results for Education(S) MTS even after several protests and agitations.

State forces stopped the protestors near Sanjenthong, Imphal West and did not allow further progression. No untoward incidents were reported.

As per reports, the candidates had completed all official procedures and tests for the recruitment but the results had been kept in the dark for the past few years.

Speaking to the media on the sidelines of the protest, general secretary of Joint Action Committee Education(S) MTS Written Test Complete 2016 and 2018 Batch Laishram Ibomcha decried the authorities’ disregard for the candidates even after numerous protests and agitations.

We have submitted several memoranda to all authorities concerned with the recruitment but no valid answers have been provided, he added.

He highlighted that around 90 per cent of the candidates had crossed the age limit but still the government showed no remorse for the issue.

“The chief minister had assured to declare the result after the elections but that has not materialized. We have tried to meet for the past seven years but that is yet to happen,” he said.

He stated that the candidates were well aware of the present turmoil in the state but still the government had no problem recruiting candidates for other departments.

We are extremely appalled by their lack of responsibility and commitment for the issue, he said.
He cautioned that the candidates would not stop protesting till their demand was met.
