Er Rasheed to bring one-time benefit reservation bill
Srinagar, Feb 20: MLA Langate, Er Rasheed today said that he would bring a bill in the upcoming budget session to seek only one-time benefit under all reservations.
“A family should get benefit of reservation just one time because it has been long seen that well-off families thrive on the irrational reservation policies while genuine ones are pushed to the wall. This is one of the reasons that reservations have not brought the social change for which they were meant,” he said in a statement.
He added that he would also bring some ‘pro-people’ bills in the session.
Rasheed said he would soon launch the second phase of his agitation to end the ‘injustice’ being meted out to people of non-schedule caste districts.
Referring to eight percent reservation for schedule castes in non-schedule caste districts of Kashmir, Rasheed said, “I am not against reservation to SC’s; but it is injustice to have SC reservation in those districts where there are no SC’s.”
About his proposed bill to name the State’s Governor and Chief Minister as President and Prime Minister respectively, Rasheed said it would be a move towards restoring the eroded autonomy J&K enjoyed before 1953. “Most of the state’s political parties including NC and PDP are demanding empowerment of the state. Let them begin this empowerment by supporting my bill and ensure a step towards political empowerment.”
