Press Release on RTI
13th October, 2015
ACAUT Nagaland in keeping with its commitment to the people to fight rampant corruption in the State started off by filing RTI’s in the various governmental departments, thus exposing blatant nepotism and favoritism in the form of rampant backdoor appointments.
It is condemnable that in spite of the numerous exposes on corruption, the Government of Nagaland is unwilling to take any remedial measures, including termination of all the illegal appointments and fixing accountability on the responsible officials for the aberration. Therefore, the ACAUT Nagaland is compelled to take the matter to the court where every aspect of illegal and backdoor appointments in all the government departments shall come under scrutiny, ACAUT has sufficient evidence.
ACAUT Nagaland is pleased and thankful that a few brave and socially committed lawyers have come forward and volunteered to take up the fight against corruption to the next level by filing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Court, free of cost for which Naga people should be grateful. The ACAUT would like to appeal to all publicly spirited lawyers to join and assist our PIL team. In the meantime, the public is urged to remain patient for there are many technicalities involved in pursuing these matters in the courts. Also, the public are requested to lend their support in the form of prayers on an issue which is eroding the future of Nagas.
Further, the ACAUT Nagaland would like to apologize to the public that although it received numerous complaints of corruption, it was not possible to take up all the cases due to limited resources and constraints.
