STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Stressing upon the need to eradicate reservations based on castes, religions, regions etc at the earliest, the Aarakshan Virodhi Manch (AVM) on Wednesday urged the Government for initiating necessary measures to end the same for overall development of nation, as reservation is responsible for dividing the country besides causing huge burden on State exchequer, resources and poor tax-payers. While addressing media here, President AVM, Ram Paul Seth said that it is surprising that despite clear-cut instructions from the High Court of Jammu Kashmir, some people with vested interests, including former Ministers and former MLAs, are openly supporting reservation in promotions. “They should not forget that in their ‘reserved’ constituencies, people from general category also reside and have also voted them to power. Taking general category people for granted and only thinking for reserve category people will prove detrimental for them in coming elections,” he added. President Ramnagar constituency, Aarakshan Virodhi Manch, Jagdish Jagotra Sharma said that politicians of India must learn a lesson from the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina, who took a bold step of abolishing reservations and won 290 seats out of 300. General Secretary AVM, Madan Lal Narad warned the so-called leaders to stop step-motherly treatment with people of general category and treat all people equally, failing which they have to face consequences in forthcoming elections. Narad also expressed anguish towards various political parties for constituting party Morchas based on various castes like SC , ST and OBC etc just ignoring general category people just for vote-bank politics.
