Schedule Cast/Schedule Tribe Unemployed Association (SC/STUA) organised a meeting of unemployed youths and demanded that the state government should ensure appointment only through proper channel of public service commission or batch wise and stop appointments through backdoor entries.

SC/STUA organised its meeting at Sundernagar on Thursday that was presided by association officiating state president Sandeep Chauhan and Employees Union's Action Committee chairman Darshan Lal participated in the meeting.

The association strongly objected the state government's recent orders of allowing appointments of teachers and lecturers in the schools through School management Committees (SMCs).

“Appointment through SMCs is definitely a tactic to provide jobs through backdoor entry. Such appointment also violates the apex court orders of reservation for weaker section of the society. Appointment should be made only through public service commission or batch wise by implementing reservation roaster while issuing appointment letters,” said Chauhan.

He alleged that state government was indirectly abolishing reservation roaster provisions in appointments and promotions and minimising job opportunities to weaker section.

On the occasion, district president of different trades were also appointed in which Lal Singh was elected as president and Ramesh Kumar as secretary of trained graduate teachers (TGTs) category, Sarla Devi as president and Yograj as secretary of post graduate teachers (PGTs) category and Hikama Ram president and Om Kaushal secretary of Classical and Vernacular teacher's category.

Association also urged MLAs, ministers and other politicians of reserved category to object state government policy of allowing back door appointments in government jobs and tactfully avoiding reservation roaster.
