Cabinet Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh, on May 19, said that every political party by default will be the member of the committee formed to examine the Roster System before submitting a final report to the government.
“We are now in the process of identifying and spelling out the terms of references of this committee. The only rider here is we should not take delay on taking the decision,” Lyngdoh told media persons after an all-party meeting.
Stating that the government will not delay on such an important matter, and finalise everything at the earliest, she maintained that the delay on Roster implementation will lead to compromise of jobs that young individuals are now applying for.
“Time is an asset, somebody maybe at the border line of getting over age, the longer we take on the matter, the more it will impact the public,” she said.
Lyngdoh further informed that if there is further legal scrutiny on the report, it should not register that the state of Meghakaya has failed to look at this aspect.
“We must not forget that in the continuous process of appointment 51 long years have passed. Now we need to find out wherever there is credible data of information of posts being absorbed by respective tribes that data must be put in place so that there will be legal reference to this,” she said.
