Bhat hails Govt’s decision of granting reservation to Pahari community


Srinagar, Jan 25 (KNS): Senior Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader and former Legislator Nizamuddin Bhat has hailed the decision of granting reservation to Pahari community of the state.
In a statement issued to KNS, Bhat said such a law was need of the hour and justice has been done to a large section of the society which has been facing deprivations because of their geographical locations and economic constraints.
He said all such sections which have limited resources and opportunities and are social, educationally and economically lagging behind, the desired pace need a push for equitable growth and even prosperity.
“Reservation law safeguards their interests and will go a long way in mitigating sufferings of the community,” he said.
Bhat said the government should take similar steps with regard to other sections hitherto not covered under such law. (KNS)
