KHNAM demands discussion on reservation policy

ToR of expert committee should be to review 1972 SRP: KHNAM to Govt

SHILLONG, MAY 17: Ahead of the All-Party meeting called by the state government, the Khun Hynniewtrep National Awakening Movement (KHNAM) on Wednesday said discussion of the ‘reservation roster’ without touching the ‘reservation policy’ will not be enough.

“As per the letter received by the party and as per the subject stated, it is clear that the agenda of the political party meeting is “Reservation Roster”, we would therefore state that discussion of a Reservation Roster without touching the Reservation Policy will not be enough on the fact that both are related and the latter is the byproduct of the former,” KHNAM general secretary F Marpna said in a statement.

He said the party expects a thorough discussion on the current issue of roster and reservation policy in the upcoming all party meeting to be held on May 19.

“We hope that it will not be just a mere presentation from the Govt or any attempts to justify irregularities of the retrospective roster implemented till today but political parties will be given ample time to put forward their points of view,” he added.

Further, the KHNAM has also slammed the state government’s failure to put on hold all recruitment processes.

“We have made a demand to the Government one month ago to put on hold all recruitment till all related issues are discussed and are brought to a logical conclusion, but it is very surprising to see that the Government has not acknowledged the same,” Marpna said.
