Lucknow: An organisation opposing reservation in promotion to employees of Uttar Pradesh government on Sunday decided to launch a public campaign against the constitutional amendment bill.

Sarvjan Hitay Sanrakshan Samiti, during a convention of regional office-bearers, decided that resignation of MPs, who voted in favour of the bill in the Rajya Sabha, will be demanded, committee`s president Shailendra Dubey said.

"It was decided that members will refuse to work under junior employees and a disobedience campaign would be launched," he said.

A call has been given to state employees and officers to remain prepared for a march to Delhi if efforts were made to get the bill passed in the Lok Sabha, Dubey said.

Meanwhile, pro-reservation Arakshan Bachao Sangharsh Samiti has decided to launch an "awareness campaign" in constituencies of dalit MPs and MLAs, who it claimed had "sided with anti-reservation lobby".
