Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Nov 10: Joint Action Committee (JAC) representing general categories and spearheading movement for implementation of recent judgment of the Division Bench of High Court for keeping reservation in promotion aside, has demanded implementation of Court order in letter and spirit.
The meeting was held under the chairmanship of Ved Prakash Sharma, President, Dogra Brahmin Pratinidhi Sabha (DBPS), in which apart from Ved Prakash Sharma, Vinod Kumar Gupta, President, Jammu Central Mahajan Sabha, BS Jamwal, General Secretary, Shri Amar Kshatriya Rajput Sabha, lnderjeet Khajuria, President, Hotels and Lodgers Association, Jammu, Jagdish Dogra, President, Sanatan Dharam Sabha, Shiv Charan Sharma, Secretary Dogra Brahmin Pratinidhi Sabha, KL Sharma, Retired Additional Chief Conservator of Forests, Satish Sharma, Susheel Soodan, Kartar Chand Dubey, Mukund Lal Sharma, Trade Union Leaders and many others expressed their views.
The speakers expressed happiness that a big constitutional anomaly, which had, over the years, deprived the general categories of their constitutional right of equal opportunity in advancement of their careers, had been set right by the High Court and felt that this judgment should go a long way in uplifting the moral of the general category incumbents.
They also said that reservation in promotion is not a basic constitutional right as is wrongly being presented by certain groups and organizations and could be considered only in compelling reasons among which the most important being that the Government has to establish inadequacy of reserve category incumbents in all classes of service by collecting and publishing “quantifiable data” to substantiate it.
The speakers clarified that the “Joint Action Committee” stood for equal right and opportunity to all, as provided by the Indian constitution, regardless of caste, colour and creed and made a fervent appeal to the Government to implement the said judgment in its true letter and spirit at the earliest and demote all those officials who had availed undue benefits of reservation in promotion and were still clinging to these posts illegally.
They also urged the Government not to succumb to any political blackmail as by implementing this judgment the Government would not only honour the orders of the judiciary, but also satisfy the aspirations of a sizable majority.
The meeting was conducted by Shiv Charan Sharma, Secretary DBPS, and the vote of thanks was presented by Jagan Nath Sharma, member, DBPS.
