Save Rights Conference Held at KU

‘Won’t allow anyone to change Constitution: Kalsotra

SRINAGAR — All India Confed­eration ST/SC/OB Organization on Monday said that they will not allow the present dispensation at New Del­hi to change the constitution of India as well as Jammu and Kashmir.

The Confederation had orga­nized a mega conference to cel­ebrate the 127th birth anniver­sary of Baba Sahib Bheem Rao Ambedkar at Convocation Hall University of Kashmir.

Speaking on the occasion the state president of the Confed­eration RK Kalsotra alleged that BJP Government is hell bent to change the Indian Constitution drafted by Dr Bheem Rao Ambed­kar. He said there is a dire need to save reservation in promo­tions. “We won’t allow any body to change the contents of both Indian and Jammu and Kashmir Constitution. This Government has divided country and has de­prived backward classes of their rights,” he said.

Kalsotra demanded that the GAD circular that damages the rights of backward classes should be withdrawn. He said 77th, 81st, 82nd, and 85th Parliament amend­ments of 1997, 2000 and 2001 should be applied to Jammu and Kashmir so that schedule cast, schedule tribe and other back­ward classes will reap benefits.

Speaking on the occasion, Con­federation General Secretary En­gineer BL Bhardwaj demanded that there should be reservation for House Boat owners and shel­ter be given to homeless. He also demanded reservation in private sector and postings of reserved category officers at public impor­tance posts.
