The CPM has urged the Union Territory government to take immediate steps to vacate the court stay on appointments of Upper Division Clerks and Lower Division Clerks and to absorb recruits into service immediately.

Senior party leader T Murugan told reporters on Monday that selected candidates in both the lists were denied appointment to government service for no fault of theirs, despite the fact that the selection was carried out in a transparent manner. The party would hold a demonstration on April 27.

The Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (Personal Wing) (DP& AR (PW)) had conducted the competitive examinations on September 30 last, he noted.

Nearly 9,000 candidates appeared, out of which 153 were selected.

The list was published on October 2 last as per the guidelines of selection, the CPM leader said, adding that a writ petition by the LDC in government service seeking promotion was filed, following which the stay was granted in the UDC’s appointments .

Murugan said the selected youths, who put in a lot of efforts for the written test, were still waiting to join the service and alleged that the government did not bother to vacate the stay.

The CPM leader added that he had written to the Chief Justice of Supreme Court and the High Court of Madras, inviting the courts attention to the plight of the selected youths.

Union Minister in PMO V Narayanasamy and former Congress Chief Minister and opposition leader V Vaithilingam did not come in support of the youths, he charged.

As many as 507 candidates selected after a competitive test for LDCs, junior clerks, stenographers and typists also were awaiting their appointment orders because of another court stay.
