Imphal: Demanding declaration of long pending results for the recruitment of 10th and 11th IRB riflemen, a large number of candidates today tried to storm the private residence of Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh at Luwangsangbam in Imphal East district. The police, however, foiled the plan of the protesters after a brief tussle.
The protest was staged under the aegis of the All Manipur 10th and 11th IRB Riflemen 2019 batch and placards carried by them demanded immediate declaration of the results. The protesters demanded that the results should be declared without any delay further as assured by the chief minister.
The chief minister who is also looking after the Home department recently assured that the long pending results will be declared within the month of June. However, the results are yet to be declared. The protesters demanded the chief minister to keep his assurance by declaring the result immediately.
The recruitment rallies for appointment of riflemen and other posts for the proposed establishment of 10th and 11th Indian Reserve Battalions started way back in 2018. Even as the process for appointment of jemadars was put on hold after the written test got completed, only the declaration of the final results was pending for the riflemen.
The candidates have been pressing the state government to complete the recruitment processes since well ahead of the elections to the state Assembly held in February-March 2022.
On many occasions, the cop aspirants had aired their grievances through various platforms including “CM Da Haisi” platform. But no positive response came forth from the chief minister’s side, the protesters alleged.
