Hakla for reservation in promotion for ST employees

Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Dec 26: Prominent Gujjar leader of the State, Shamsher Hakla Poonchi today appealed Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to introduce a bill in the ensuing Assembly Session for continuing reservation in promotion of Government employees belonging to ST/SC and other backward classes.
In a statement, Hakla said that in every sphere of life, reservation is the need of the hour and is necessary for the people belonging to SC, ST and OBC categories. He asserted that in order to keep SC, ST and OBC employees at par with people belonging to upper castes, their reservation in promotion is an essential requirement.
He said that even after 26 years of granting ST status to the Gujjar and Bakerwal community by Government of India, the people of this community are still deprived of full benefit, as this community is still socially, educationally, economically and politically lagging behind due to apathy of the State Government.
