Lashing out at the state government for ignoring the Kupwara district, “the worst hit by the militancy”, Independent MLA Langate Er Rasheed Wednesday said while government is bragging about the Ladli Beti scheme, it has forgotten Kupwara district including Dardpora, the village of orphans.
Participating in the debate on grants pertaining to Social Welfare Department Er Rasheed strongly advocated for ending reservation to SC’s at state level and said that reservation should be given at district levels to reserved categories, based on population.
Er Rasheed said that ST population is being deprived of their genuine rights in reservation and so are physically challenged people being denied their due quota.
Er Rasheed appealed government to consider granting of minority status to Sikhs. “We should not ignore the genuine rights of Sikh community,” he said.
