shivraj-singh-chouhan-addressing-ncc-cadetsBhopal: Madhya Pradesh chief minister Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today stated categorically that there is no need for reservation for those who have talent.

The Chief Minister, who honoured and presented trophies to NCC cadets at a special function at his residence here today, was answering a pointed query by a journalist. He was asked whether the State Government will take the initiative of announcing reservation in jobs for NCC cadets. Chief Minister said it is not proper to link reservation with everything, If there is talent, there is no need for reservation, he went on to underscore.

Since the State Government, led by Shivraj Singh Chouhan, has challenged in Supreme Court the ordered passed by the Jabalpur High Court quashing the 2002 Madhya Pradesh Rule for promotion in reservation, it is an established fact that the State Government is bent upon continuing reservation in promotion for officers and employees belonging to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. Due to the Chief Minister’s statement today that there is no need for reservation for those who have talent, questions arises why there is reservation in promotion for SCs and STs in Madhya Pradesh? on the face-value of his stated position,one would not be off the track to ask is the Chief Minister trying to imply that there is need for reservation in promotion for SCs and STs because they lack talent? It is expected of the Chief Minister that he should honor his own words and abandon the system of reservation in promotion because officers across the board should be allowed to rise in their service on the basis of their talent or merit and experience.

  1. Dear Shivara ji, you created room for another political conflict. This statement will be conveniently misinterpreted by your political opponents as ‘anti reservation – anti dalit’ mindset of CM. This is election time wherein persons will not loose any opportunity to twist your hands. I don’t know, whether it is a deliberate statement. However, idea is excellent. It is not just ‘ no need for reservation, talented do not go behind reservation. One of my friends, use to tell me that, asking for reservation is a painful and humiliating experience. Today, we need to be extra careful in implementing reservation and ensure that only deserving do get this constitutional cum social benefit. What to do anything and everything gets politicized in India.
