Agartala: Out of the total 761 successful candidates in the UPSC Civil Services Exam, 2020 at least nine candidates are from the North East region who successfully cracked the examinations. Six are from Manipur, two from Tripura and one from Assam.

There are two successful candidates from Tripura — Dhiman Chakma and Sumit Paul — who bagged AIR 482 and AIR 530, respectively in the UPSC exam this year. Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb congratulated both of them and Tweeted: “Congratulations to youngster from our state Sumit Paul for securing 530 rank in UPSC, Civil service examination, 2020.” He tweeted for Dhiman: “Congratulations to Dhiman Chakma on securing 482 rank in the UPSC, Civil services examination, 2020. You made #Tripura proud today…” Dhiman is an IFS officer posted at Mayurbhanj district in Odisha at present as assistant conservator of forests.

Dhiman is an engineering graduate in computer science and electronics from NIT, Agartala. Hailing from a family of school teachers, he moved on to Delhi for better coaching facilities and eventually cracked his Indian Forest Service exams in 2018. But his eyes were set for IAS and he kept on trying for it. In 2019, he cracked UPSC but secured 721 rank, which would have brought him a job at audit and accounts but not a IAS or IPS berth. “I wanted to go for IAS since it has the maximum opportunity to serve the people. So, I tried again and came 482nd this year,” he said.

Sumit Paul is from Khowai district of Tripura, secured 530 rank but is not satisfied with the position and would try one more time next year. Paul completed his engineering in material science from IIT, Kharagpur in 2010 and got placed at a Bengaluru-based company as market research analyst. But he too decided to try for UPSC to serve people back home, remembering his village where he would have to go to school crossing two hills back in childhood. Paul has received Rs 1 lakh financial support from the state government under its scheme to encourage aspiring civil service examination candidates.

The best performer from the North East has been Parikshit Thoudam of Manipur who has scored 60 position in the All India ranking this year while his rank was 373 in 2019. Some other candidates from Manipur included Heikrujam Prasanjeet got 578 rank; Ourembam Nelson Mangangcha got All India rank 757; Deepi Chanu got AIR 621; Waikhom Nydia Devi; and Hatchinghoi Haokip got AIR 180 and 673. Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh congratulated all the successful candidates.

Ahmed Hasanuzzaman Choudhury of Silchar is the lone successful candidate from the state to clear the civil service exams by getting AIR 283. After completion of schooling from Assam in 2012, Ahmed did his engineering from Jamia Milia Islamia University. He started preparations for the UPSC after graduating from JMI and joined Jamia Millia Islamia’s Residential Coaching Academy.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
