STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Dogra Brahman Pratinidhi Sabha (DBPS) on Friday urged Governor Satya Pal Malik to extend the provisions of the recently passed Bill by Parliament regarding ten percent reservations of economically backward upper caste communities to the State of Jammu and Kashmir also. Addressing a meeting of Sabha activists here, Ved Prakash Sharma, President of the Sabha over the issue welcomed the decision but expressed concerned over non fulfillment of posts and extending benefits. “Now immediate task is to extend the provisions of the Bill to J&K and start aggressive recruitment drive to enable the poor among the upper class to avail the benefits of this Bill,” he added. Sharma opined that elections to State Legislative should not be held in less than two years as many of the developmental projects are in their various stages of execution and the new administration in all probability may not think of executing the same. Stressing on the need to constitute Minority Commission in the State, Sharma conveyed that minorities in the State have heavily suffered over the last three decades. Sharma has also expressed deep concern over the non-introduction of Jammu Prayag Raj special train, the demands of which have been put forth from time to time to authorities both at Centre and State level. Now with the upcoming Ardh Kumbh Mela beginning from January 15, 2019, which has tremendous significance from religious and spiritual point of view, it becomes imperative that such service for pilgrimage is ensured. Sharma further appealed to the Governor Malik to take up the issue at the highest level so that there is no hiccup in providing this much needed facility for people of Jammu & Kashmir State. Advocate P.C. Sharma said that all stakeholders including the governments should not delay the construction of Ram Mandir at Sri Ram Janam Bhoomi Ajodhya as the nation cannot afford the same. Vice-President Virendar Mohan Magotra, Satyanand Sharma, Advocate Chander Mohan Sharma, Subash Shastri, Jagan Nath Sharma, Shiv Ram Sharma, Romesh Sharma, Satpal Sharma, Shiv Ram Sharma, Satpal Khajuria, Dr Som Dutt Magotra, Raman Sharma, K.L Sharma, Prem Balotra, Shanti Saroop Baru, Rajesh Bargotra, M.L Sharma, Girdhari Lal and S.C.D Sharma were also present.
