* Setting up of Lok Ayukta at the earliest
Termination of backdoor appts after 6.6.16
Revocation of the decision to scrap Class-III posts from the purview of NPSC etc.
Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (ACAUT), Public Service Aspirants of Nagaland (PSAN), Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC), technical aspirant associations, students’ unions and various other public organisations under the banner of Public Coordination Committee (PCC) have called for a three-day sit-in programme at the New Secretariat Junction in Kohima from November 15 in support of its various demands. 
A statement issued by the PCC media cell said that the protest would start at 10 a.m. demanding setting up of a Lok Ayukta at the earliest, revocation of the decision to scrap Class-III posts from the purview of Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC), declaration of marks and answer keys in all stages of NPSC examinations, besides declaring waiting lists, and immediate termination of all backdoor appointments made after June 6, 2016.
PCC said the state government had time and again paid no heed to the common people’s voice and indulged in activities that could be termed as “repugnant”. 
Accusing the government of indulging in anti-people activities, the organisations added that its amateurish publicity stunts had made it a laughing stock, even as the people were being taken for a bumpy ride day in and day out. 
Stating that several other states of India had already set up Lok Ayukta, the organisations said setting up the institution in Nagaland would check the menace of corruption. 
“The Ombudsman which has its origin in Sweden has been set up in several countries and has shown proven results in curbing corruption. Why is the government of the day coming up with excuses not to set up Lok Ayukta? Are they afraid to come clean?” the organisations wondered.
The PCC further stated that even as the number of civil service aspirants was increasing every year, the government showed a strange mindset by scrapping Class-III posts from the NPSC’s purview. 
“We all know departmental exams are a huge farce. This will open the floodgates of backdoor appointments. So this means 15,000 plus candidates (their numbers will increase in the coming years) will slog it out for some few posts,” the statement added.
The PCC urged every right thinking citizens “tired of anti-people policies” of the State government to be at the sit-in venue New Secretariat Junction. 
“Be there to show your resentment, make your voice heard. We are taken for fools and mocked day in and day out. Let us make a sea of people stand in front of the seat of power and show that we can’t take any more mockery from their side,” the statement exhorted.
