Four legislators of the opposition Voice of the People Party (VPP) have decided to submit a letter to the state government on May 12, for immediate reviewing of the state reservation policy.
Speaking to reporters on Monday, VPP spokesperson Dr Batskhem Myrboh said the party in the past had submitted a letter to the Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma requesting him to convene a special session of the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly to discuss the pros and cons of the job reservation policy as well as implementation of the roster system but sadly event today we have not received any communication from the government in this regard.
He said therefore, the party is left with no option but to decide to go and submit a letter to the government asking it to stop the recruitment process as long as the job reservation policy is not yet reviewed or implementation of the roster system is not yet in place.
He said the party believes that the continuing recruitment to different bodies in the state is in total disregard to the interest of the youth.
“We appeal to the public to come and support the party MLAs led by Ardent Miller Basaiawmoit when they are going to submit the letter by being present around the secretariat to show that they are supporting the step taken by the party,” Dr Myrboh said.
“However, when they come to show their support to the party and to our MLAs, we appeal to the public to maintain peace, calm and respect law and order and not to create any disturbances. The party will not be responsible for any untoward incidents.| he said
