New Delhi: Bhim Army chief Chandra Shekhar Aazad Rawan has called for “Bharat Bandh” (India Shutdown) on February 23.
The shutdown is called against a ruling of Supreme Court of India (SCI) in which the court said that the states were not bound to provide reservation in promotion, appointments in public employment.
The SCI also added that quota/reservation was not a fundamental right.
“In view of the law laid down by this court, there is no doubt that the state government is not bound to make reservations. There is no fundamental right which inheres in an individual to claim reservation in promotions. No mandamus can be issued by the court directing the state government to provide reservations,” the bench said in its order dated February 7, 2020.
