A press release issued by secretary general of Thadou Students’ Association congratulated all the successful candidates from Thadou community on their recent selection as Assistant professor in Government Colleges under Higher Education Department.
It highlighted that as per notification of the competent authority, any citizen of India with a law degree from any recognised or lawful established University or institution in India, irrespective of their cultural or ethnic background is eligible for the State judicial service. Although it is desired by the authority that the applicants know Manipur or a local language of Manipur, it is not mandatory.
The association stated that any departments under State Government does not have any orders/judgements/memorandums issued or written in Manipuri language. Although knowledge of a local language can be helpful for general communication, a judge is not going to prepare a make up story but make the judgement in English based on facts and evidences.
