Minister wants RESERVATIONS in Judiciary

CHENNAI: Minister of State Parliamentary Affairs and Planning V. Narayanasamy said Thursday that social justice would be complete if only reservation was extended to the judiciary.
At a meeting organised by the All-India Federation of Other Backward Classes Employees Welfare Association to felicitate him, he said the Central Educational Institutions (Reservation in Admission) Act, 2006, providing the OBCs with 27 per cent reservation should be included in the IX Schedule of the Constitution to insulate it from judicial interference.
Mr. Narayanasamy also demanded that a Parliament Standing Committee be set up for the OBCs. “We have submitted a memorandum, on behalf of the OBC MPs Forum, to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, and he told us that he fully agreed with us,” he said.
Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Industries V. Hanumantha Rao said reservation in the judiciary was necessary to ensure that the people got right judgments.
Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president M. Krishnasamy wanted the creamy layer to go, “as it is a stumbling block for the talented OBC students.”
