The meeting also wanted rise in quota of reservation from two per cent to five percent for candidates of fishermen families in education and employment sectors, immediate implementation of Right to Education Act, utilisation of funds sanctioned under Special Component Plan for the Scheduled castes exclusively for the targeted sections and disbursement of wages for workers of the government undertakings.
