Minister's promise on Narendran panel report

By Our Staff Reporter

KOCHI, OCT. 9. The Minister for Local Administration, Kutty Ahammed Kutty, said that the Government would make up for the reservation losses suffered by the backward communities in the light of the Narendran Commission report.

Speaking at a meeting organised in connection with the 15th anniversary of Muslim Employees Cultural Association (MECA) here today, Mr. Kutty said that the delay in taking a decision on the report was due to lack of consensus in the Cabinet. The decision cannot be taken by the Ministers of the Indian Union Muslim League alone, he said.

Stick to rules

The Minister for Fisheries, Dominic Presentation, said that the private sector, which takes the Government salary, should strictly adhere to the reservation rules. The laxity of private managements on maintaining the quota rules often invite public outcry, he said.

Mr. Presentation was speaking after inaugurating a seminar on reservation held as part of MECA anniversary.

Inaugurating the anniversary celebrations earlier, the Indian National League (INL) leader, Ebrahim Sulaiman Sait, reminded the State Government of its responsibility to fill up the vacuum of backward communities in government jobs. The Government should keep its word, he said.

In a resolution passed at the meeting, MECA demanded that the Public Service Commission (PSC) should scrap the columns asking the applicant's cast and whether the job is sought in merit or reservation category.

Merit and reservation should never be mixed, it said.
