The government on Wednesday introduced the 117th Constitution Amendment Bill for reservation in promotions of government jobs for SCs and STs, amid scenes of scuffle between members of Bahujan Samaj Party and Samajwadi Party, as the latter tried to prevent the tabling of the legislation in RS.
During Zero Hour, after the MoS for textiles Panabaka Lakshmi had tabled a report, the next item on the agenda was the introduction of the Constitutional amendment, which had been tabled after the April judgment of Supreme Court striking down the UP government’s seniority rules.
In a bid to stop the Bill from being introduced, SP member Naresh Agrawal got up from his seat, intending to rush to the Well.
But as he ran, he was accosted by BSP’s Avtar Singh Karimpuri, who tried to stop him. Agrawal tried to brush him off, but Karimpuri tried to hang on to his clothes, which led to a scuffle. It ended when BSP member Brajesh Pathak finally removed Karimpuri.
