Early Times Report
JAMMU, Oct 14: A meeting of General Category People's Welfare Forum Jammu (GCPF-J) was held under the chairmanship of Raj Kumar Banathia, Chairman of the Forum, for threadbare discussion over various issues confronting the general category people.
While addressing the meeting, Mr Banathia alleged that political class of India, since 1955, has been ignoring and marginalizing General Category people, playing vote-bank and divisive politics for political gains.
Yash Paul Sharma, president of the Forum, also lashed out at the political class of India for following an appeasement policy totally based on ill-conceived obsolete data about actual state of so called Dalits and backwards in the country. He added that the so called Swarn castes would no longer reconcile with their second class status and their anger would explode in a big way in coming State and Parliamentary elections. He demanded abrogation of all such laws and provisions, which violate the fundamental human rights of equal opportunities, justice and dignity.
Som Nath Sharma, general secretary of the Forum, alleged that Government had been promoting casteism and minorityism considering it as a miraculous cure for all political, social and economic evils, ignoring Swarn castes. He demanded that the Government should provide equal rights and equal laws for all.
V K Sharma, vice-president of the Forum, said that Government made mockery of verdicts of apex court of India in matter of reservation and reservation in promotion by ignoring the same, time and again. He termed reservation as an unlawful act against the value of social-fabric of nation. He condemned the attitude of the political organizations and their behaviour of promoting casteism and communalism through reservation, sacrificing national interest and playing politics of caste and class.
Deepak Khajuria, while addressing the meeting, demand 25 percent reservation for BPL category people. He blamed that reservation was being provided to elite class from birth to death, who move in luxury class and earn salary in crores by ignoring the people living in abject poverty.
Bhushan Pargal demanded reservation for economically weaker sections (EWS.) and termed existing provisions of reservation as illegal discriminatory and violation of Human Rights of Equality, Justice and Liberty.
A large number of activists of the Forum participated in the meeting.
