Reservation in promotion both, at Centre and in States for SC/ST : Ram Vilas Paswan

Reservation in promotion both, at Centre and in States for SC/ST : Ram Vilas Paswan

New Delhi, Jun 13 (UNI) Union Food Minister and Lok Janshakti Party leader Ram Vilas Paswan on Wednesday said that reservation in promotion for Scheduled Castes (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) will be given at both the Centre and in the states.

He said this after a meeting with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh here where the issue was discussed.

"There was confusion over whether the Supreme Court's order was applicable for just Central government employees or for state government employees. In our meeting of ministers, it was cleared that the reservation is for both Central and state government employees," Mr Paswan told mediapersons.

He said he had sought SC/ST reservation in private sector as well.

On June 5, the Supreme Court permitted the Centre to go ahead with reservation in promotions to certain categories of staff in accordance with law till a larger bench decided the issue.
