Mangaluru Feb 13: MLA U T Khader said, "With regard to the Supreme Court's (SC) verdict on promotions and appointment based on reservation to SC and ST, the union government needs to discuss the issue seriously and file review petition or promulgate an ordinance to serve the interests of the affected people.

Addressing the media here on Thursday February 13, U T Khader said, What is the commitment of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and central government with regard to the quota issue? On the other hand PM Modi speaks about Dr B R Ambedkar, but his cabinet members and MP's deliver statement against the constitution. BJP leaders talk of changing the constitution, burning the Constitution, etc. But so far Prime Minister and the BJP have not taken any action against the leaders who issued such statements," he rued.

He also said, “Today due to the hike in LPG price, common man has been effected badly. There is no employment. Delhi election has shown that there is no scope for sensitive matters and laws as only a few people stand in favour of such laws. Prior to Delhi elections there were no speeches about development, it is only about abrogation of article 370, Ram Mandir, Babri Masjid, NRC and CAA," he pointed out.

Regarding the attempt-to-rape female madrasa students case, U T Khader said, “District administration and police department need to take the issue seriously and take stringent action against the culprits. Whenever such incidents occur, make sure that strict action is initiated against the culprits irrespective of religion and caste. I am ready to give Rs 25 lac towards MLA's fund to the police department for undertaking safety measures in the constituency. We need to appreciate the locals to act in the issue immediately and also need to appreciate the courage shown by a girl who bit the hand of a man and fled into madrasa to inform the teacher," he stated.

    Dear Mr.Khader why do you even speak and stand up for such outdated issues such as reservations? Other countries have gone above and beyond with this old issues. In fact, you should represent the youth of this nation and put forward issues such as abolition of reservation and make it open to one and all based completely on meritocracy irrespective of religion and creed. People like you should be the torch bearer in issues to bring peace amongst all communities and do some good to the society for the young and elderly by raising and supporting issues related to their development.

    Enough is enough! How far, and how long, should the State go to shore up SC/ST. Wasn't 70 years of so-called "upliftment" enough to catch up? May be for a century or more.

    Can you justify why reservations in promotions. You guys always tell about protection of constitutin. Originally reservation in general was for 10 years. When constituion amended no one talked.
    After giving reservations in jobs u give reeservations in promotions. Do you know its results. Those who are senior become junior and have to work under them despite being senior.

    And what purpose will promotions serve. It will create disappointment. I know my friend who has to work under his colleague who is seven years junior.

    So give reservations in jobs and again in promotions means injustice to someone else.

    Plesase think and then talk

    Just days before these people were shouting against CAA that it violated article 14, though it did not.
    Reservations based on religion or caste itself is discriminatory and it violates article 14.
    And now these people do not mind article 14 being violated!!! Hypocrites!!
