The Voice of the People Party (VPP) has expressed its gratitude to the strong support extended by various pressure groups and individuals in different parts of the State on the need of withholding the implementation of the roster system during the pendency of the review of the outdated job reservation policy.
In a statement issued today, VPP spokesperson Dr. Batskhem Myrboh said that the party is committed that this issue which was included in the VPP manifesto is cleared once and for all for the balanced interests of every section of the society.
“It is essential that the voice seeking for review of the policy gets aggregated through the VPP for the continued pursuance till the matter is resolved. Any attempt to scatter the voice on this matter post-election will defeat the purpose. History informs us that this matter unless it is taken up seriously by a political party, it remains a pipedream. No doubt, the issue of the review of the reservation policy was taken up by the leaders of various pressure groups in the past but unfortunately they failed to take it up after becoming political leaders irrespective of their party affiliations,” Dr. Myrboh said.
While appealing to every group and section in the State to solidly lend their support to the efforts of the party in this matter, Dr. Myrboh said that VPP besides engaging with the State government on the issue would also organise public meetings in various parts of the State in the coming days to sensitise the people on the matter.
