Lucknow: Raising his voice against quota in promotions, former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh on Sunday said the decision is against the spirit of Constitution and will create a flutter in the administrative system.

"If reservation is given in promotions, junior officers and employees will become seniors and vice versa," Kalyan said, asking the Centre to immediately withdraw the Constitution Amendment Bill in this regard.

He said that the decision will adversely affect the administrative ability of the employees and create indiscipline.
The Lok Sabha MP, who eyes a return to BJP, said that if the bill is tabled in Lok Sabha, he will vote against it.
