Dehradun, January 6
The Uttarakhand Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Association today staged dharna at Ambedkar Park here today demanding that no Departmental Promotion Committee be convened for general employees till the Justice Irshad Hussain committee submits its report.

The protesters alleged that quota in promotions for SC/ST employees must be restored in the state. They asserted that reservation was their birth right and they cannot be deprived of their right. They said they would put forward their case before the Justice Irshad Hussain committee.
The Justice Irshad Hussain committee was set up by the state government after general and SC/ST employees were at loggerheads over the issue of quota in promotions.
