SC order on med courses nothing but anti-quota mindset: Sharad
New Delhi: Janata Dal(U) president Sharad Yadav on Monday said the Supreme Court ruling that there can be no quota in appointment for faculty posts in speciality and super speciality courses in medical colleges underlined "the anti- reservation mindset of the judiciary".
"The judgement clearly shows the anti-reservation attitude
and hidden motive to dilute the reservation policy by the government. I am stunned to know that after this judgment the reservation policy will not be applicable in the higher echelons of universities," he said.
According to Yadav, the government did not fight the case "sincerely and strongly" which allowed the court to "find a way to dilute reservation".
He demanded that the government bring an ordinance to offset the order.
A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Altamas Kabir had pronounced its verdict on July 18 on a plea of the Faculty of Association of AIIMS.
