Worries ahead for BJP as West Pak refugees, OBCs feel betrayed by local leaders

Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 25: Annoyed over repeated 'betrayal' by the local BJP, the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and West Pakistani Refugees (WPRs) have warned to launch agitation if their demands were not fulfilled after October 31 when J&K will be officially converned into Union Territory (UT).
While as WPRs are annoyed over not allowing refugee youth to participate in police recruitment, there is a feeling among members OBCs of J&K that they are 'cheated and betrayed' by the local BJP leadership as there is no provision of implementing Mandal Commission report in the rules farmed for the newly carved UT.
OBCs leaders are alleging that due to caste prejudice the incumbent BJP leadership has betrayed OBCs of J&K as there is no provision in Bill passed by the Parliament to extend reservation benefits for their community in the newly formed UT.
In para 7 of page 44 and serial number 21 of page 52 of the Bill passed in the Parliament for the abrogation of Article 370 the new rules framed so far have stopped extension of the jurisdiction of National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) in J&K.
Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, while giving reply in the Rajya Sabha on August 5 had made it a point to mention that 52 percent OBCs population of J&K will the biggest beneficiaries of the decision of government to abolish Article 370.
But in the drafted Bill for the reorganization of J&K no mention of extending reservation benefits to OBCs of J&K. It is clearly mentioned in the Bill that existing reservation rules of erstwhile J&K state will be continued in the newly carved UT so it is more like betrayal with OBCs.
Same is the story of WPRs because in the latest notification issued, J&K Police has decided to recruit only "permanent residents" as women constables in women battalion and constables in two border battalions. In the notification it is mentioned that recruitment will entertain only "permanent residents".
