[ZESTCaste] Elders concerned over move to de-reserve posts

Elders concerned over move to de-reserve posts

New Delhi, Dec 15 (PTI) Members today voiced concern in the Rajya
Sabha over the government's reported to move to de-reserve posts meant
only for SCs/STs and OBCs, a charge denied by the Minister of State
for Parliamentary Affairs Prithviraj Chavan.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, J D Seelam (Cong) said Government
should immediately withdraw any such move otherwise there would be
widespread unrest by the SCs/STs and OBCs.

Associating with him, D Raja (CPI) said it is a very serious matter.
While the government is claiming that it is for inclusive growth, what
Department of Personnel is doing is just the opposite.

Terming it as "insensitive" and "irresponsible", Raja said government
cannot take steps against the interest of SC/ST in the name of
people's interest.

Denying the charges, Chavan said the DoPT office memorandum was a
progressive step.
