Scores of individuals from the scheduled castes and the scheduled tribe communities on Saturday staged a protest on the Jantar Mantar in Delhi to oppose the National Monetisation Pipeline (NMP).
The demonstration was held beneath the aegis of the All India Confederation of SC/ST Organisations, popularly referred to as Parisangh — an organisation comprising workers and social activists. The protest was led by Parisangh nationwide chairperson and former Delhi MP Udit Raj.
Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had final month introduced the Rs 6 lakh crore NMP that can look to unlock worth in infrastructure property throughout sectors starting from energy to highway and railways.
Raj claimed that at current, about 80 per cent of presidency posts are mendacity vacant.
“Instead of filling up these vacant posts, the Modi government is snatching away (government posts). More than 240 posts are lying vacant in different tribunals. Out of 54 central government universities, there is no single SC/ST/OBC vice-chancellor,” he stated.
“These communities are already at the receiving end in higher judiciary. The courts are against reservation and there is little scope to get any relief from there,” Raj stated.
He alleged that the training sector is the worst hit by authorities insurance policies.
In the New Education Policy, there is no such thing as a point out of reservation, Raj stated.
“As many as 934 of 1,286 posts of professors are vacant in IIMs and situation is equally bleak in IITs. We have been opposing the privatisation since 2002 and fighting for reservation in the private sector,” he stated.
Raj alleged that the privatisation will hurt the SC/ST and OBC essentially the most. Their participation in nationwide sources might be additional marginalised and resultantly the lack of a nation, the previous MP stated.
