Agencies Posted: Feb 24, 2011 at 1145 hrs
New Delhi Dalit activists today demanded that the Centre should ensure
reservation of jobs in higher judiciary, armed forces and all other
services where it is not being implemented at present.
Workers of Dalit Sena staged a demonstration here and submitted a
memorandum to the Prime Minister.
Besides quota in higher judiciary and armed forces, the group also
demanded that the Central government should bring an \"enactment to
ensure reservation in promotion in services for scheduled castes and
Addressing the gathering, LJP chief Ramvilas Paswan claimed the Uttar
Pradesh government failed in presenting the case properly before the
Allahabad High Court which led to its ruling that there is no
provision of reservation in promotion with respect to government
services in UP.
The Sena alleged there were increasing atrocities on Dalits in
BSP-ruled UP and said the Centre should \"take steps to protect
Dalits, women and common citizens\" there.
