Center should remove the limit of 50 percent reservation in jobs for the deprived in the country: MK Stalin

New Delhi, 20 September (HS). Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin said that the Central Government should remove the 50 percent limit in jobs for the deprived sections so that they can get social justice. He said that in Tamil Nadu this limit has been increased to 69 percent. The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) government stands for social justice, secular politics, socialism, equality, state autonomy and federalism to build a strong and just India. He said this at the conference of All India Federation for Social Justice at Maharashtra Bhawan here late on Tuesday evening.

Referring to the Mandal Commission report, he said that if BJP had really cared about social justice, 27 percent reservation in central government posts would have been fully implemented in the last nine years. He didn’t do that. The Chief Minister said that reservation in government education and jobs should be extended to the private sector. There should be proportionate appointment of professors from OBC, SC and ST communities in central universities, IITs and IIMs, proportionate preference should be given to OBC, SC and ST students in admission to premier institutions like IITs, IIMs and IISc. A Social Justice Committee should be established to resolve the grievances of SC, ST, OBC employees and workers.

On this occasion, DMK MP P Wilson, convenor of the federation, in his welcome speech advocated the revival of the social justice movement in the country. Wilson said that the government has now brought a bill of 33 percent to give reservation to women. In Tamil Nadu, 33 percent reservation for women has been implemented in all local body elections since 1996.

Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury, CPI General Secretary D Raja, SP General Secretary Ram Gopal Yadav, National Conference’s Farooq Abdullah, RJD leader Manoj Jha, Aam Aadmi Party’s Sanjay Singh, India Many leaders including Rashtra Samiti’s Keshav Rao, NCP’s Fauzia Khan, TMC’s Jawahar Sircar, NCP’s Chhagan Bhujbal stressed on social justice.
