Integrated Development organization (IDO) shows solidarity to the agitation by AMMSO and PSU-DMU.
A statement by Secretary Akhtar Hussain said that the Manipur Govt, vide its OM No. 9/l/90(OBC) DP: dated 27 Dec. 2007, notified that 4% quota is reserved for OBC (Metei-Pangal) for appointment to Government posts and also for admission in professional courses in professional Colleges/Institutes. However, the same was not extended to non-professional courses of higher studies.
He further stated that from the socio-economic and educational point of view, the Meitei-Pangal is the most backward community among the minority communities and other backward classes in the state. More than a decade after the new reservation policy, still they are not adequately represented in the services under the state. Without framing a proper reservation policy in proportionate to their population it is difficult to uplift the community. Specific attention of the government is highly needed in order to bring the community into the mainstream. Better education opens up a host of opportunities and helps in elevating the social and economic conditions of any marginalized sections of society it added.
There has been a long-pending demand for the community to extend the same reservation quota in non-professional higher studies since many deserving students from the Meitei-Pangal Community have been deprived of higher education due to the non-availability of seats. Extension of the same reservation quota to non-professional courses of higher studies would be a great boon for the students of the downtrodden community.
