Imphal July 18,
Concerning about reservation violation of tribal in the notification for LDC of RIMS and also the seats of MBBS students All Tribal Students’ Union Manipur (ATSUM) warned intense agitation if RIMS authority doesn’t rectify it at the earliest.
Addressing in a press meet held today at Administrative centre of ATSUM, Adimjati Complex Chingmeirong General Secretary of ATSUM Seiboi Haokip said that the notification for the post of LDC of RIMS violated the reservation system. He added that as per the guidelines of Department of Personnel and Training there is a clear cut policy to follow State Reservation Norms at the Central Institution which is around 34 percent for ST in our State.
Unfortunately according to the notification out of the nine posts for LDC, 5 were Unreserved, 2 reserved for SC, 1 reserved for ST and 1 reserved for OBC which completely violates the DOPT guidelines, Seiboi stressed.
He further said that they have given written application to the Director regarding the matter but no sign of rectification was done from the RIMS.
Seiboi urged the RIMS authority to rectify it under the State reservation norms.
Regarding 25 additional seats of MBBS he said that there is also a violation of reservation system where 11 seats are reserved for economically weaker section, 10 were unreserved seats and 4 for all India.
The economically weaker sections have 10 percent reservation for the General category.
The central institution should also follow state norms regarding reservation where 7 seats for SC, 4 seats for OBC, 1 seats for SC and 2/3 seats for Economically weaker section and 10 seats should be unreserved out of the 25 MBBS seats.
He also urged the authority to rectify it at the earliest.
Seiboi warned that ATSUM will launch agitation if the authorities fail to rectify it.
“We will fight for our right for our befitting share”, he concluded.
