[ZESTCaste] SC, ST body raps Babus’ extra-Constitutional stance


SC, ST body raps Babus' extra-Constitutional stance
January 11, 2011 7:22:37 PM


Petitioning the President of India and Governor, the Odisha State
Scheduled Caste-Scheduled Tribe Youth and Students' Council has
demanded to implement the 85th Amendment of the Constitution in true
letter and spirit in the State here so that they all reap the benefits
at par with their counterparts in other States.

Taking a strong exception to some of the State bureaucrats' alleged
extra-Constitutional stance, the council has further alleged that a
few State Babus are manipulating the law for vested interests and have
connived not to implement just to serve the general category's

Certain vested interests are hell bent on influencing the State
Revenue and General Administration departments to bypass the 1979 Act
and implement the 2001 instead for promotion to the OAS Class I rank,
it is alleged.

The State houses 40 per cent SC and ST out of its total population and
as per the 1975 Act, the reservation should not be disproportionate to
the percentage of SC, ST population. However, 9.86 and 1.87 per cent
have been appointed respectively in place of the mandatory 38 per cent
in Odisha, Council president Haladhar Sethy rued in a Press note.
