"The situation will be clear by Monday afternoon. If the state
government, in whatever circumstances, tries to tamper with our
constitutional rights, we will submit our mass resignation on Monday,"
Rajpal Meena, district president, STSC Arakshan Manch said. Meena said
they were waiting for the decision of Supreme Court following which
the ambiguity over reservation in promotions was expected to become

Hundreds of officials from reserved segments converged for a formal meeting

under the banner of ST/SC Arakshan Manch and unanimously decided to
hand over mass resignation to the president of the association.

"Reservation is our constitutional right and it cannot be withdrawn
without making an amendment in constitution. The communities would
retaliate if the state government in any circumstance tries to axe our
reservation benefits," Meena said.

The employees from reserved categories have also put up new demand
before the government - representation in the judiciary. Members of
the organisation were of the opinion that under the existing system
their community has no representation in the judicial system. After
Sunday's meeting they demanded judicial appointments according to the
rules under Indian Judicial services.

"Due to collegiums' system of appointment we are not getting any
representation in judicial system. Out next protest would be to push
our demand to make judicial appointments according to the rules under
Indian Judicial Services," Meena said.

The state government's SLP on Rajasthan high court's contempt
proceedings against chief secy and DoP principal secy would be heard
by Supreme Court on Monday.
