LUCKNOW: BSP president Mayawati today accused the Narendra Modi government of delaying the implementation of reservation in promotions for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, saying that the Supreme Court had always held it constitutional.
“The Supreme Court has always held reservation for SCs/STs in promotions as constitutional but the complexities in its implementation had rendered it ineffective, especially in Uttar Pradesh, for which a constitutional amendment was brought in the Rajya Sabha, she said.
But it is a matter of regret that it is pending in the Lok Sabha for the past four years,” she added.
