Provide MLC quota to OBC members: AIBCU

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU,  Feb 9:  All India Backward Classes Union (AIBCU)- Social,  has urged upon the  State Government to provide reservation quota  out of the seats of MLCs in the Upper House of the Legislature to the members of OBC community.
In a meeting of the Union held here today under the chairmanship of Abdul Majid  Malik,  the speakers pointed out that under Art 50 of  J&K Constitution and Art 171 of Indian Constitution,  the MLCs  and MPs seats for Rajya Sabha cannot be distributed among the politicians as they have no legal right for such seats.
Rules and directions of Under Art 50 of J&K Constitution and Art 171 of Indian Constitution must be adhered while allotting MLC seats. According to both the constitutions,  MLCs  and  Rajya Sabha seats are only meant for those sections of the society and social workers, who cannot afford to contest the Assembly as well as the Lok Sabha  elections.
All the speakers and participants appealed both the major political parties PDP and BJP to go by the constitution and must give due share to the State OBCs as there is  no political  representation in the State in any House and that is why State OBCs who form 60% of the State population could not get their due share of 27% reservation.  They said that PDP and BJP must adopt a process to provide justice to the OBCs in the State by allotting at least 11 seats to them.
House was also informed that the same information has been sent to Prime Minister with copies to Dr Jitendra Singh- MoS in  PMO,  Amit Shah National BJP president, State BJP  president & MP Jugal  Kishore Sharma.
Prominent among others who shared their views were HD Betab, Mohd Kabir, Gulam Rasool, Bodh Raj,  Sandokh Chand,  Darshan Lal, Raj Kumar, Deepak Panday, Shakeel Malik, Abdul Rashid Mushtaq, Mohd Hanief and Prof Kali Dass.
