SNDP Yogam to move SC against quota

The SNDP Yogam will move the Supreme Court against the Constitution amendment Act guaranteeing 10% reservation in education and employment for the economically weaker sections among forward castes.

Yogam general secretary Vellappally Natesan said the Central government had acted arbitrarily in introducing the Bill in Parliament. Any quota outside the Constitutional provisions would not be acceptable. No party, except the IUML, had come out against the Bill when it was taken up for discussion in Parliament, he told the media.

Mr. Natesan said the reservation was introduced with an eye on the forthcoming general election. He said the BJP had hijacked the Nair Service Society (NSS).
