Latest Update on Court Hearing

Today Mumbai High Court issued notice to the Government on the matterof implementation of OBC quota. The next hearing is scheduled on 23rdof June. The HRD Ministry sent its attorney for the hearing. The IIT-Band TISS lawyers were taken the view of Delhi High Court and soughttime to file answer. This is natural procedure as the court is goingto hear both sides before pronouncing any order.
Calcutta High Court is supposed to take the matter today as the HighCourt is approaching its summer break. Yesterday only our lawyersargued in front of the Division Bench to take the matter for earlyhearing. Justice Maharaj Singh had agreed to take the matter for anearly hearing.
On date 13th May 2008 the National Commission for Backward Classes wasbusy hearing the plea from the Jat Community of Delhi that they arethe real backward caste and deserve reservation. There was virtuallyno opposition except that of Youth For Equality's representation alongwith Ati Pichhda Varg Sangharsh Samiti. The house was full of Jats ofall age. YFE representatives Amit and Vikram had to struggle to enterand submit the representation infront of the Commission. Surprisinglythe Jats were degrading themselves infront of the commission andinfront of their own community. Only one opposition came along withYFE and the person was abused by the members of Jat community. Theperson had to say "look at them Mr. Chairman (Justice Ratnavale) howthey are behaving. If they can abuse me infront of the Commissionimagine what they can do at the village level. Do they look backwardfrom any angle". How disgusting a situation it was to see and hearthat powerful communities, one after another, taking pride indegrading their own self to get the benefit of reservation. VikramSingh, who was standing beside the podium, had allowed others to hearthe public hearing through his mobile phone. When the writer of thismail arrived at the Commission Amit and Vikram were flexing muscleswith the Jats present their to make their point. Finally we had torush to the personal chamber of the Member, NCBC to present our view.
