Bharat Bandh against 13-point reservation roaster evokes wide response in Bihar

BIHARPOST NEWS DESK


PATNA: The dawn-to-dusk Bharat bandh called by Dalit and Tribal groups seeking for rights for adivasis and against anti-reservation policy of the central government evoked considerable response in Bihar on Tuesday.

Officials and witnesses said normal life was badly hit in many parts of the state as both the road and rail traffic remained severely disrupted all through the day.

At many parts of the state, the protesters were seen taking to the streets and blocking road and rail traffic.

The protesters also burnt tyres on the roads and railway tracks and were seen squatting on the tracks to block traffic.

Bihar opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav warned of serious consequences if anyone tried to scrap reservation from the country.

In a quick action, the central government has announced to bring ordinance to restore 200-point roaster for appointment of faculty in universities and colleges to immediately pacify the pro-reservation supporters, apparently thinking the move could boomerang.

According to a report in The Times of India, Union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday spoke to Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar informing him that the centre would be bringing the ordinance in the “next 2-3 days”.
