LUCKNOW: Raising the pitch against the state government move to quash reservation in promotions, employee of the reserved category organised a state-level convention here on Sunday. Under the aegis of Arakshan Bachao Sangharsh Samiti, the employees gave a call to socially boycott the dalit MPs and MLAs in case they do not take up the matter in Parliament and assembly.
Addressing the gathering of employees, Justice Khem Karan said the issue will not get resolved until employees rope in best lawyers and legal experts.
Samiti president KB Ram said the objectives of the samiti will be taken to the nook and corner of the state. Samiti convenor AK Verma said the protest will also be held in Amethi and Rae Bareli, the parliamentary constituencies of Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi respectively.
Taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi, samiti members said just by eating food in the houses of dalits would not solve the problems.
Meanwhile, a delegation of Sarvajan Hitai Sanrakshan Samiti, UP, met the state Bharatiya Janata Party president Laxmikant Bajpayee and other senior party leaders on Sunday and handed over a memorandum to them. The delegation solicited BJP's support to the Samiti, which is spearheading its protest to the attempts being made to change the Supreme Court's judgment in reservation in promotions for SCs and backwards and consequential seniority.
President of the samiti Shailendra Dubey, who led the delegation, asked the BJP leaders to clear their stand on this issue and take effective action at their level. The delegation told the BJP leaders that officers, employees, social organisations, teachers, lawyers, students and unemployed youths all over the country would vehemently oppose any move to tamper with the basic structure of the Indian Constitution.
