Senior Political leaders and Social activists Sanjay Manhas has alleged that Modi Government in Delhi and Mufti Sayeed led Government in the State were working against the interests of Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs) and want to scrap the existing reservation policy.
Addressing press conference after addressing an emergency meeting of workers of Bhaderwah here today, Sanjay Manhas referred to the recent developments and court orders pertaining to blanket ban on the promotions out of reservation quota in the State. He said with this decision there is strong resentment among the members of reserved categories and they assume that it has happened with the initiative of Government. He also leveled allegations against the Congress Party as well as BJP saying that both these parties are hand in glove with each other to defeat the purpose of giving Reservation benefits in promotions to SCs, STs and OBCs. Describing BJP led Government at the Centre and Coalition dispensation in the State as anti- SCs/STs, Manhas warned these parties to face tough agitation from the members of reserved class if reservation abolished. He assured to fight tooth and nail in protecting the rights of the members of this category.
