[EWS Quota: DAY 6]

Supreme Court Constitution Bench led by CJI UU Lalit continues hearing petitions challenging the constitutional validity of the 10% quota for the economically weaker sections (EWS).

Solicitor General of India Tushar Mehta to argue

#SupremeCourt #EWS
SG Mehta: Economic criteria should be considered by parliament has been said by this court time and again. 50 percent being not a fixed ceiling and that it cannot be taken to the level of basic structure is shown through the judgment. The 50% ceiling is not sacrosanct

SG Mehta: A constitution amendment can be tested only on the ground that it destroys the “basic structure” of the Constitution itself. In other words, if such an amendment permitted to stand, the very foundational edifice of the constitution would fall.

Und hier noch ein paar andere Punkte, an denen sich die UN-Krisenvorsorge (#UNDRR) nicht ehrlich gemacht hat:
1) Nur 84 Länder haben einen Halbzeitbericht (#MTR) über die Ziellerreichung beim Sendai-Rahmenwerk (#SFDRR) termingerecht eingereicht.
... 2) 95 Länder melden Forschitte bei der Frühwarnung (#EWS). Unter den "No shows" sind auch reiche Ländern z.B. in Arabien. Das Narrativ "capacity deficit" greift zu kurz. Auch Deutschland hat hier Defizite, siehe #Ahrtal-Flut.

கோட்டாவின் மூலம் எமது உரிமைகளை திருடியவர்கள் #SC க்கள் தான் என்று பாடும் #OBC முட்டாள்களும், #EWS மூலம் OC க்கள் முன்னேற்றப்படவேண்டும் எனும் OBCசங்கிமங்கி களும் கவனிக்க.

மோடி அரசின் 89 செயலாளர்களில் 3 #ST யும் 1 SC யும் தான் இருக்கிறார்கள், இதில் ஒரு OBC கூட இல்லை.
அதாவது 89ல் 85 செயலாளர்களுமே OC இனத்தவர்கள், அதாவது உங்கள் கருத்துப்படி பாவப்பட்ட, முன்னேற்றப்பட வேண்டிய EWS இனம்.

அவர்கள் படித்தார்கள் முன்னேறினார்கள் என்பீர்கள், ஏன் உங்கள் இனம் மூலையில்லாத இனமா? படிப்பறிவும் திறமையும் இல்லையா?
மேலும் படித்து முன்னேறிய OC இனத்திற்கு எதற்கு EWS கோட்டா?

சூடு சொரணையுள்ள ஒரு OBC யாவது எமது உரிமைகளை திருடுவது OC தான் என்று சொல்வார்களா? சூடு சொரணை இருந்தால் தானே சொல்ல!!

OBC சங்கிமங்கிகளே நீங்கள் என்றைக்குமே இந்துத்துவா அடியாட்கள் மட்டுமே,

Is there a reason why TN Govt. asked officers to stop issuing #EWS Certificates? Can someone explain why?

பொருளாதாரத்தில் நலிந்த பொதுப்பிரிவினருக்கான வருவாய் மற்றும் சொத்து சான்று வழங்குவதை நிறுத்தி தமிழக அரசு திடீர் உத்தரவு - இது தான் சமூக நீதியா?…
No clarity still on this issue.

Is TN Govt denying income certificate for EWS?…
Honestly speaking nobody is having answers on why this is being done. No official statement/clarification. BJP Legal Wing has approached Madras High Court on this.

Central govt job aspirants from TN in a fix as state govt stops issuing EWS certificates…
