Pun­jab chief min­is­ter Capt Amarinder Singh has ex­pressed con­cern over the di­lu­tion of the Sched­uled Castes and Sched­uled Tribes (Preven­tion of Atroc­i­ties) Act. He has also said that he im­ple­mented the 85th amend­ment dur­ing his pre­vi­ous ten­ure by pro­vid­ing for reser­va­tion in pro­mo­tion in gov­ern­ment jobs. He has claimed that he would en­sure its im­ple­men­ta­tion, while ful­fill­ing the di­rec­tions of the Pun­jab and Haryana high court that had struck down pro­vi­sions pro­vid­ing for ac­cel­er­ated reser­va­tions in pro­mo­tions due to ad­min­is­tra­tive short­com­ings. The CM should safe­guard in­ter­ests of all em­ploy­ees. Such state­ments are just eye­catch­ing, vote-catch­ing ploys, noth­ing else.
