States don't have quantifiable data of inadequate representation of SCs/STs in govt jobs: SC 3.8.2018 DNA: Top News
The Supreme Court today asked the Centre as to why states have not come forward with any quantifiable data to decide the inadequacy of representation of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in government services even 12 years after its verdict on the 'creamy layer'. The apex court's query came after the Centre said that M Nagaraj verdict of 2006, which had dealt with the issue of 'creamy layer' for reservations to SC and ST categories in government job promotions, has virtually stopped the promotions by putting criteria like backwardness, inadequate representation and overall administrative efficiency, and it requires reconsideration by a larger bench. The Centre, however, contended these criteria should be done away with as SCs and STs are presumed as backward and there was no need to have a quantifiable data to prove that such categories of employees suffered from backwardness. A five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra clarified that the reference order to the Constitution bench is very ...

Congress and RJD have cheated the backward classes: Sushil 23.1.2018 General News
Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi today charged RJD-Congress combine with having "cheated the backward classes" of the state while claiming to champion their cause. "The RJD and the Congress do their politics in the name of the OBCs but in reality they have always cheated the backward classes. The Congress government at the Centre never had the courage to implement recommendations of the report of Kaka Kalelkar Commission tabled in 1953", he said. "When the Janata Party government assumed power in the country, the Mandal Commission was formed in 1977. But successive Congress governments kept its report in cold storage. Recommendations of the Mandal Commission saw the light of the day only after V P Singh formed a government with the BJP's support", the senior BJP leader said. The Bihar Deputy CM was addressing a function organized at the state BJP headquarters on the eve of the birth anniversary of former Chief Minister and OBC stalwart Karpoori ...
