Bihar CM backs quota in promotion for SC/ST employees


Patna,(BiharTimes): Unlike alliance partner the BJP, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday supported SC/ST job promotion bill and claimed that his government had already implemented the measure in his state.

Talking to the mediaperson at airport before leaving for Kolkata he said the SC/ST government employees should get reservation in promotion because there has not been desirable improvement in their socio-economic conditions.

Nitish said his party, the Janata Dal (United), was in favour of passage of the constitutional bill to provide the quota and hoped the proposed legislation would ensure more clarity on the issue. The state government had implemented quota in promotion for its SC/ST employees after a proper study of the Supreme Court order and making a survey.

It needs to be recalled that Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party is strongly supporting the bill while Samajwadi Party is opposed to it. The BJP wants some amendments.
