March for Social Justice in Delhi: NO to Scuttling of OBC Reservations!

Other Backward Classes (OBCs) has been subjected to multiple forms of marginalities; in this context United OBC Forum has been constituted. United OBC Forum is a socio-cultural platform of young students and aims to resolve the issue of non-representation/non-implementation of OBC reservation by various government educational institutions.

Government is trying to scuttle reservation of OBC students in admissions at various centrally funded institutes. Besides, it has also notified draconian unjustifiable office order of UGC bearing F.No.59-6/2012 (CU) dated 3rd June 2016, which stipulates central universities in India to implement OBC reservation in recruitment of teachers only at the level of Assistant Professor. Here, it should be noted that for the same faculty recruitment in IIT, OBC reservation is applicable for all the three levels: Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor. Through this social justice march, we demand rollback of this unjustified office order issued by UGC.

In this backdrop, United OBC Forum has organized Social Justice March to Parliament. To organize this march, members of United OBC Forum have been leaving no stone unturned for last one month. They have been able to mobilize people from different parts of India. This movement has got participation by the people from Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.

In the wake of preparation of the march, members of United OBC Forum have met leaders from different political affiliation. Movement has got unflinching support from leaders like Mr. Sharad Yadav, Mr. Laloo Prasad Yadav, Mr. Upendra Kushwaha, Mr. Tejasvi Yadav, Mr. V Hanumantha Rao. They have ensured their undaunted support for the cause of OBCs.

    OBCs have been denied reservation for long and Mandal commission recommendations were followed after long struggles. The reservation should be strictly implemented at the earliest .
