The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) has demanded the Assam government to immediately appoint 1600 candidates in Foreigners’ Tribunal (FT). Taking to the tweeter on Monday, AASU chief advisor Samujjal Kumar Bhattacharya slammed the state government for not taking any steps to appoint candidates of FT.
Bhattacharya said, “Govt’s failure in #ForeignersTribunalAppointment of 1600 selected candidates is shameful. Candidates are worried. Also shows @mygovassam’s insincerity in working towards detection & deportation of illegal foreigners. Demand for their immediate appointment.”
It may be mentioned that exam for appointment in FT was held on August 11, 2019, and the results were declared on September 19 in which 1600 candidates were selected but the state government is yet to appoint them.
The selected candidates have also staged protests several times demanding their appointment but the Assam government has miserably failed to do so and even after one year, the appointment process remained incomplete.
