'White Paper' on Reservation of Jobs

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  The minority department of the KPCC has urged the state government to release a ‘white paper’ to bring out the real truth on the representation in government jobs and other benefits enjoyed by religious minorities in the state. The demand has been made in the wake of an alleged misinformation campaign unleashed by the BJP and allied organisations in the state.

Minority department state chairman K K Kochu Mohammed said on Saturday that a clarity on the issue had become imperative since the Sangh Parivar outfit seemed to be hell bent on dividing the people in the state by spreading lies and canards against the minority communities.

“The main charge is that Muslims, accounting for 26.56 per cent of the population and Christians representing 18.38 per cent are snatching away all benefits over and above what was due for them,” the department said. It was highly essential that a white paper should be released to pinpoint the reservation in government jobs, for which a lion’s share of the state’s revenue was spent, and community reservation in the civil services stream, appointment of High court judges, PSC members and top officers in universities and other important postings.
