[ZESTCaste] Parliamentarians for quota in pvt sector for SC, ST

Parliamentarians for quota in pvt sector for SC, ST

New Delhi, Mar 4 (PTI) Several Parliamentarians today supported the
demand of providing reservation to members of Scheduled Castes and
Scheduled Tribes in the private sector but said proper education is
the key to the progress of the two groups.

"There is need to intensify the movement to get reservation in private
sector (jobs)," CPI (M) politburo member Brinda Karat said supporting
the demand.

Karat said there was no development in the issue even as the
government said it constituted a committee for this and several
consultations were held with India Inc., who agreed affirmative
action. However, nothing concrete has emerged from this, she lamented.

Speaking about the law enacted for the protection of SC and ST, she
said it appeared good but "when we go deep, we find several loopholes
in them.
