Opposition parties today demanded corrective steps against a recent judgement of Constitutional bench of the Supreme Court against reservation for SC/ST/OBC in medical and other technical institutes.

JD(U) president Sharad Yadav, BJP MP Hukumdeo Narayan Yadav, CPI leader D Raja and P K Patsani from BJD vowed their support to the issue and slammed the government for its approach towards the issue of reservation.

Rajnarayan, convener of the Janhit Abhiyan, the group which organised the event, said leaders have assured to raise the issue in a major way in Parliament in the Monsoon session.

The five-judge constitution bench headed by former CJI Altamas Kabir had pronounced on July 18 on the plea by the Faculty Association of AIIMS that there can be no reservation in appointment for faculty posts.
