HNYF wants roster system to be prospective

Shillong April 12: The Hynniewtrep National Youth Front (HNYF) has said implementation of the roster system should not be retrospective.

Speaking to journalists on Tuesday,; HNYF president Sadon K Blah said the state government should come up with a policy which will ensure that the implementation of the roster system should be prospective and not retrospective.


He said that the Meghalaya High Court in its order passed on the matter did not talk about roster system needs to be with retrospective effect.

To a question on the demand for reviewing the state reservation policy, Blah said, “Constitutionally, the reservation policy was intended only for 10 years and many Supreme Court’s rulings say that reservation should not be beyond 50%. So if we attempt to bring legislation to review the entire reservation, it might invite the attention of the judiciary and that will have a more negative impact on the issue.”

He asked people to be aware of the Supreme Court’s ruling when it comes to the reservation issue and to be aware of the temporary constitutional status of the reservation.

According to him, if a resolution is passed in the Assembly on rester system, it will surely invite the attention of the judiciary, which had already maintained that reservation no matter what should not be more than 50%.
