Atrocities against SC/STs should come to end: JKRCEA
Oct 28, 2020
Jammu: The Jammu Kashmir Reserved Categories Empowerment Alliance (JKRCEA) has urged the Lt Governor to intervene and get atrocities against SC/STs people including category employees stopped.
Retired, socio-religious, women and youth wings of JKRCEA in a joint press conference urged upon LG of JK UT to intervene and direct bureaucratic system of J&K to stop calculative atrocities on SC/ST employees and also take adequate steps to control caste and religion based unrest and atrocities which are on rise since last few years in J&K. It looks if abrogation of Article 370 has given a space for these happenings.
They said the LG being direct representative of Narendra Modi led Government in Centre should chalk out a strategy to make PM's slogans as reality.
Mohinder Bhagat, working general secretary of JKRCEA while expressing his view said that bureaucrats led by Chief Secretary have totally sabotaged the issue of ‘Reservation in promotions' in spite of it being protected through ‘J&K Reorganization Act 2019' and extension of whole Constitution of India to J&K UT. They are neither implementing the Constitution as a whole in J&K UT nor submitting objections in the Supreme Court for final disposal of the case of reservation in Supreme Court. He alleged that a strong anti-SC-ST lobby is working in the administration on dictates of some employees as well as the right wing forces to harm reserved categories.
Prof GL Thapa, Working president of JKRCEA said that harassment against employees and common man of SC/ST/OBC have become a day today affair in J&K UT and it looks if JK UT is going to be another UP or Bihar like society.
Before abrogation of article 370, these communities were a little bit protected under the shadow of being Muslim majority state but abrogation of article 370 has caused more harm to these communities.
Several members including Sham Lal Basson, Bodh Raj Bhagat, ML Banalia, Rashpal Kaith, TC Bavouria, MR Bangotra, Som Raj Taroch and GL Rahi also spoke on the occasion.
