Pithoragarh, October 29
Congress MP from Almora Pradeep Tamta said today that by eliminating ex-cadre posts from the state government and implementing government’s order to discontinue reservation quota in promotions, Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna had done anti-congress work and had send a wrong message to the weaker section of the state.

Addressing a meeting of the party at Kanalichina in the district, Tamta said the decision by the Bahuguna government on ex-cadre was taken without considering the commitment of the Congress. “While the Congress at the national level is committed to the weaker section of the country, the state government has failed to follow it,” said Tamta.
Later, the Almora MP said the high court had not clearly rejected the SC/ST quota on promotion but had put three conditions which Bahuguna did not follow. “The state government can form a new law on the matter to give promotion to weaker sections of the state as the Rajasthan government has done after forming the Bhatnagar Committee,” said the MP.
He expressed surprise over the decision, saying that the state government itself had formed the ex-cadre and eliminated it on its own.
