ST reservation in panchayat polls: Govt now to move SC

Express News Service Posted online: Sun Sep 19 2010, 06:42 hrs
Luknow : The Uttar Pradesh government has decided to challenge in the
Supreme Court, the Allahabad High Court's judgment regarding an
increase in reservation for members of the Scheduled Tribes (STs) from
0.06 to 2 per cent in the upcoming panchayat elections in the state.
On Thursday, a Division Bench comprising Justices Sunil Ambawani and
Kashi Nath Pandey had directed the state government to revise or
modify the final list of reservation of seats of pradhans in districts
where members of Scheduled Tribes have a substantial presence. The
court also directed the government to accordingly reduce the number of
seats allocated to the members of the Scheduled Castes (SCs).

The judgment came on petitions filed by Jan Sangharsh Morcha and
Pradesh Jan Jati Vikas Manch, which had prayed for an increase in
reservation for STs in 13 districts.
