The 'All Manipur 10th and 11th Viva Voice Completed IRB Rifleman and Written completed Jemadar Candidates, 2019' on Friday requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah to intervene in the declaration of the viva voice results.

The candidates also requested Modi and Shah to take up initiatives for conducting the viva voice of Jemadar within August.

In a letter to Modi and Shah on Thursday, the candidates stated that the recruitment process was conducted in the year 2019. However, the process has remained incomplete even after nearing three years since the recruitment began, it stated.

As the Manipur general assembly election is nearing, most of the candidates are facing uncertainties since the state government cannot declare results of any recruitment once the Election Commission of India (ECI) announces the election notification, it stated.

The letter also claimed that most of the candidates who applied for the recruitment are now facing problems of 'age bar'. Several applications were submitted to Chief Minister N Biren Singh to issue a notification for conducting viva voice of the Jemadar posts. Unfortunately, the candidates have not received any response, it added.

The letter also mentioned that the viva-voice for 6,750 rifleman candidates was successfully conducted from January 29 to March 25, 2021 but the final result has not been declared till date. The written examination for Jemadar posts was conducted on January 30, 2020 and the results were declared after a year on May 3, 2021.

However, the viva voice has not been conducted and no notification regarding the viva voice has been notified till date, it added.
