Backdoor appointment in Nagaland: HC dismisses petition

The Kohima Bench of the Gauhati High Court today dismissed the writ petition filed by the Public Service Aspirants of Nagaland (PSAN) and the Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (ACAUT) against 706 backdoor appointments.

According to sources after the final hearing held on July 26, the court today dismissed the case stating that the petition is “not maintainable in its present form.

” The petitioners have however been given the liberty to make a fresh challenge to the appointments of the impleaded respondents and other persons as per law, as the present writ petition has not been dismissed on merit, but only on the issue of maintainability.

The court, in its judgment, observed that the petitioners will have to show that they are aggrieved by the appointments made.

“Thus, they will have to give material particulars to challenge the appointments made, keeping in mind the relevant recruitment rules,” it added.UNI
