It may be mentioned that the Home department of the state government in 3rd January 2013 had conveyed approval to the then Director General of Police for filling up of 2000 vacant posts of Constable (Male) by direct recruitment with the approval of the State Cabinet.  Following that the then DGP Manipur made requisition for filling of the 2000 male constable by issuing a notification on February 6.

As according to the report ; while conducting the Physical Efficiency Test, results column for assessing the marks scored by the candidates in all events were found not entered in the score sheets of almost all candidates; Among the qualified candidates, marks for each event were found not entered and further disqualified candidates were found declared as qualified
In the process of conducting the Written Examination no minimum qualifying cut-off mark has been set for clearing the written examination leading to candidates securing lesser marks as low as ‘0’ or ‘2’ being declared successful and candidates securing marks as high as ‘21’ being unsuccessful Result column for assessing the marks scored by candidates in all events were found not entered in the score sheets of almost all the candidates, one candidates with two answer scripts in different handwritings was found qualified, Tampering of marks scored by candidates in noted, Proceedings/tabulations sheets for declaration of PET and Written examination results were found not signed by DPC members, Number of candidates selected for interview was found to exceed 5 times the number of vacancies.
Deputy Chief Minister Gaikhangam further said that a notification has already been served to reappear in the fresh recruitment to all the candidates. The recruitment will be conducted as per the same eligibility criteria which were there in 2013, he said. The notification for the fresh conduct of the written and physical tests, and viva-voce was served only after thorough discussion on the demand put forward by the constable candidates. He appealed to the constable candidates to co-operate in what the Government is arranging for them.

Who constituted the then DPC Committee ? It was by the present Govt. and why this Govt. going to blame others for their (Govt.’s) corruption ? Why they victimised the 2000 youths. If they choose the wrong way who will be the responsibility for ?

Who are the culprits in Rs.500 Cr Govt job scams?? CM Ibobi and all his Congress ministers… All top position polices and their dogs.
The fact is that…all of them divided their shares/quotas depending on their position and SP Radheshyam wanted to take more share than Deputy CM who is supposed to be retired on November this year.

….Here my question what’s about the 10K victims who already paid Rs. 5 lacs to 6 lacs during the process. As you know without such corruption no chance to get a govt post.

Who are the victims…. Since the nature of the post…. They are X or XII passed youths from low or below medium income group. They may give ransoms to dogs of minister by selling properties, selling their mother’s/ sisters jewelry and may even take loan from local lenders @5% per month only to get a govt job. What will be their futures??? Can govt return 10 lacs to each selected candidate??
If they can give 5 lacs for a job…obviously the can buy a Gun at 50,000 to kill the culprits. If they revolt and become a new groups…. Or a new gang then there will no peace in the state.
