Chennai, June 23(BPNS)
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K.Stalin said that he would take a ‘good decision’ regarding the 10.5% reservation for the Vanniyar community within the Most Backward Castes in the state. The Vanniyar community leader and Pattali Makkal Katchi(PMK) founder President Dr. S. Ramadoss had petitioned the Chief Minister that the 10.5% reservation for the community is not being implemented even after the previous AIADMK government had passed it in the house in February 2021.
PMK legislator G.K.Mani, alleged in the house that the vanniyar quota was not being implemented by the state except for the higher education department issuing an order. The MLA said that there was no hindrance to implementing the internal quota of Muslims, adi dravidars and economically weaker sections and 69% reservation even as cases were pending in the court.
Chief Minister in his reply in the house said,” We have just begun to breathe as our focus was to reduce Covid -19 day and night since we took over. I assure that a good decision will be taken after holding discussions and reviews with the officials”.
M.K. Stalin said that PMK founder S. Ramadoss had written a letter to him a few days ago through G.K. Mani for implementing the 10.5% quota for vanniyar community and urging the state to implement the law enacted in February and issue necessary government orders and guidelines based on the reservation quota.
