Does NEP2020 seek to end the policy of reservations for SC, ST, OBC and disabled in educational institutions? If not, could you please clarify as to why NEP2020 does not contain any mention of reservations?
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) considers the provisions for reservations and promotions as being obligatory upon all states and Union territories of the Union of India.
The party has said that the atmosphere of suspicion, fear and insecurity still persisting in the state was a matter of deep concern. It was disturbing that some nefarious forces are still engaged in caste polarisation for their petty political interests.
Though this is not a special session, as the CPI(M) demanded, these two days must be utilized for ensuring that the attention of the entire country is focused on this shameful scourge of Indian society -- inequality on the basis of birth and descent -- and on the urgent need to take comprehensive and strong measures to eliminate it.
The Polit Bureau discussed the broad outlines of the contents of the Report and the Resolution for the Organisational Plenum to be held from December 27 to 31 of December, 2015 at Kolkata. The replies to the detailed questionnaire by the Party Centre to the State Committees have been received and the documents for the Plenum will be prepared incorporating these as well. The Polit Bureau will meet on 28th and 29th of October and the Party Central Committee from 13th to 16th of November to finalise the documents for the Plenum.
