Jammu Tawi, December 18

More than 100 activists of the All India Confederation of SC/ST/OBC
and other social organisations assembled to chalk out the future
course of action in the backdrop of anti-reservation attitude of the
present coalition government. While speaking on the occasion all the
participants highlighted the discrimination being meted out to the
SC/ST/OBC communities in all spheres. The reservation provisions are
flouted by all the departments without any fear and this has never
happened before in this state. Also the matter of tempering with the
KAS seniority list and pushing down at the bottom to all the KAS
officers belonging to reserved categories was discussed in which it
was apprised to the general house that the matter was brought in the
notice of all the MLAs/ MLCs/Chairpersons of all boards belonging to
these communities well in advance but unfortunately with no results.
The meeting observed that this was for the first time in the history
of the state that out of 131 KAS officers promoted recently not a
single officer from SC/ST Community was promoted. The president of
the Confederation R K Kalsotra in his address dealt the conspiracy
angle at length and raised serious doubts about the designs of those
sitting at very senior positions in the GAD and higher bureaucratic
offices in the civil secretariat who are duty bound to ensure
implementation of reservation provisions in letter and spirit. He has
appealed all the members of the community to reach in large number on
December 25 at canal head at 11am for larger conference to expose the
true face of anti-reservation coalition regime and more particularly
ministers belonging to these communities who have done nothing to save
reservation and to chalk out the future course of action.
