Jammu, January 31:

A State Government Employee belonged to Scheduled Caste community today raised the issue of reservation of SC/ST employees in promotions during Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti’s address at Guru Ravi Dass Ji function at Krishna Nagar in Jammu City.

The man, who did not disclosed his name, suddenly raised a placard, when Mehbooba was addressing the gathering and said, “Maam please speak on reservation in promotions of SC/ST employee, will you give reservation in promotion.”

However, the Chief Minister assured necessary action, but concluded her speech at the same time.

Earlier Mehbooba said that people of the State have been exemplifying harmony, tolerance and brotherhood. This, she said, is something which ought to be celebrated given the acrimony that has crept in the social fabric all across the globe. She specifically hailed the people living in Jammu for upholding these egalitarian traditions with grace and despite provocations.
