IEP CHANDIGARH JULY 17, 2022
Today, the Ward No. 12 Councillor, Advocate Saurabh Joshi wrote an OPEN LETTER to the Hon’ble Governor Sh. Banwarilal Purohit Ji demanding 85% RESERVATION POLICY, for those holding a domicile of Chandigarh, in Regular / Contractual / Outsource JOBS in Chandigarh Administration, Municipal Corporation, in private sectors etc. And in various Professional Colleges, Punjab University and its affiliated colleges of Chandigarh for admission.
He accented that Chandigarh, a U. T, even though being a joint capital of the two states i.e. Punjab and Haryana is deprived of any reservation policy in these two states. Whereas, both these state have made reservations policies for the people with domicile of these very respective states.
To make the situation more specific, there is no reservation for children of Chandigarh in professional colleges including P.E.C Arts College, Home Science College, Professional College, Chandigarh College of Engineering and Chandigarh Medical College. Even Panjab University and its affiliated colleges ignore any rightful place for those born in Chandigarh. Also, institutes like C.S.I.O, N.I.P.E.R etc disregard any niche to the people of Chandigarh.
Due to lack of any such convenience, the eligible youth of Chandigarh feel ignored and debilitated. Because of such repressed feelings of dejection, they are forced to move out of the city to pursue their further studies and for appropriate jobs outside their own city.
Given such a state, the Councillor, Saurabh Joshi, himself being a born-and-brought-up of Chandigarh, tends to understand the ignored status of the children and youth of the city. He feels that how ironic it is that since 1953 and with there generations of residents of the city, the rights of reservation for people of Chandigarh in various job sectors and educational institute is still overlooked.
So, in order to quell the distress of the people of Chandigarh, the Chandigarh Administration should make adequate policies to make 85% reservation in various quarters and provide a rightful breath of relaxed air to those born in the city of Chandigarh.
