Ujjain: Sapaks terms new rules of reservation in promotion as 'Old wine in new bottle'

Ujjain: Sapaks is upset over the rules of the state government issued for reservation in promotion.

On Tuesday, it held a demonstration at Kothi Palace and submitted a memorandum. Slogans were raised before handing over the memorandum to Collector Ashish Singh.

Madhya Pradesh government has started the process of promotion of government employees. Before implementing it, the draft of the proposed rules has been sent to Sapaks.

Sapaks alleged that an attempt has been made in the new rules to give benefit to a class. This is completely contrary to the orders of High Court Jabalpur.

The Jabalpur Court has not made the obligation of creamy layer mandatory, while it has been included in the rules shared by the government as the Reservation in Promotion Rules 2002 was dismissed by the court on these grounds.

Sapaks demanded from the collector that these unilateral and unjust rules should not be implemented in the state.

New rules should be framed and implemented keeping in view the interest of all sections. Sapaks district president Arvind Singh Chandel warned in the memorandum submitted to the CM that if these rules are implemented, then Sapaks will approach court. According to Chandel, efforts are being made to implement the old rules it is but the attempt of the government to serve the old wine in new bottle.

Memos have been submitted in 48 districts against these rules and the new rules will not be allowed to be implemented under any circumstances, said a Sapaks member.
