The All India Confederation of SC/ST/OBC Organisations (J&K) and its allied social organizations from all over the state assembled in a symbolic counter rally at Press Club Jammu to counter the negative publicity and misinformation spread by the so called intellectuals of general category people. This counter rally was aimed at readying the people to remain ready for fight to save reservation in its current form. The President of the Confederation, J&K Chapter, RK. Kalsotra, while opening up today’s program said that current system of Reservation was provided for upliftment of those classes who have been decimated against for centuries. He further said that now that the effect of reservation has started showing results in so far as the same is resulting in upliftment of these categories to some extent, these sections apprehend losing their hold over these deprived classes and to perpetuate their hegemony continuing since centuries, do not wish that everybody should get a fair chance of education and opportunity of employment, are now raising voice against the current system of reservation to attempt changing the system to suit themselves. He expressed his surprise at the strange stance of these sections who wish to eliminate reservation provided by the legislature to people considering their factual, social, educational and economic backgrounds. He further added that this system of reservation includes people from every walk of society and they, by challenging present system in its current form, are creating trouble for their own communities who enjoy reservation in the form of RBA/OSC/ALC/HC/CDP etc.
