Chandigarh, 10 September (Trinew)
Organizations, officials and intellectuals of the Aja Samaj are very excited about the decision of the Haryana Government to give 20 percent reservation in the promotion of first and second class Scheduled Caste officers in the monsoon session of the Legislative Assembly. Organizations working for the welfare of Scheduled Caste society have been fighting for this demand for the past several years, but their demand has been fulfilled by Chief Minister Manohar Lal. The Chief Minister has instructed the administrative officers to speed up the implementation of the decision to give reservation in the promotions of first and second grade non-commissioned officers. At the same time, this report has been sought from all the department heads that how many officers are working in their department and how many reservations are made in promotion so that they can be benefited. Representatives of Aja society and Aja organizations expressed their opinion on this decision of the Chief Minister, which is as follows.
Rajendra Kumar Jogpal, President of All India Confederation of Scheduled Castes and Tribes Organizations, said that we have been fighting since 1997 to give reservation to first and second grade non-commissioned officers in promotion. Nobody heard us, but Chief Minister Manohar Lal has made a provision of 20 percent reservation for Aja in promotion. This will benefit the underprivileged officers and employees of our society. This decision of the government is very relieving.
All India Confederation of SC-ST Association Executive President and Associate Professor Nisha Burak said that the decision of reservation in promotion is historic. This declaration will give due respect to the Scheduled Caste officials in the society and will prove helpful in utilizing their efficiency in the interest of the country, state and society. At the same time, Vijay Singh, President of Jhajjar, Haryana Scheduled Caste Government Teachers Association, said that there was no system of reservation in the promotion of first and second grade non-commissioned officers after the formation of Haryana. Chief Minister Manohar Lal has done a great favor to the people of Scheduled Caste society by fulfilling this demand.
Organizations said this
Vijay Kumar, a resident of village Kharakda in Rewari, said that the respect of the society has increased without reservation. Dr. Vikram Singh Damolia, president of Ambedkar Missionaries Vidyarthi Association, Haryana, said that thousands of Scheduled Castes will get the benefit of the government’s decision. This was the system in Punjab, but not in Haryana for many years. Surendra Kumar, professor of education department in Jhajjar, said that the decision of reservation in promotion will bring the best result. The deprived society will be helped to return to the mainstream of the society. Abhimanyu, sarpanch of Beed Chuchakwas in Jhajjar, said that the decision has cleared the way for the BJP to come back to power. At the same time, Mahendra Singh, Sarpanch of Jhajjar’s Choochkawas, said that the people of Aja society are very happy with the decision of 20 percent reservation in promotion. People of Aja Samaj will be seen standing with BJP in 2024 without this decision of the government. Apart from Manohar Lal, none of the Chief Ministers had cared for the deprived people of Aja Samaj. At the same time, retired principal of Rohtak, Ramesh Kumar, said that the Haryana government has done a great job by taking the decision of reservation in promotion. At the same time Sarpanch Kashmiri in Lahli village of Rohtak said that she became Sarpanch due to the benefit of 50 percent reservation for women in panchayats. Now the Chief Minister has given the benefit of reservation in promotion to AJA officers of class one and two.
