Gadchiroli Sept. 22 (District Correspondent) All India Republican Party has demanded separate reservation for the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, OBCs and minorities in the women’s quota and immediate withdrawal of the state government’s GR handing over govt. schools to the corporate houses.
The resolutions in this regard were passed unanimously in a district executive meeting of the party that was held at Chandekar Bhavan here on Thursday.

Prakash Dudhe, Regional Secretary Prof. Rajan Borkar, Legislative Incharge Pradeep Bhaisare, Office Secretary Ashok Khobragade, General Secretary Pralhad Raypure, Youth President Narendra Raypure were prominently present.
Various important public issues were discussed in the meeting and it was decided to raise these issues with the government. The workers put forward the problems in their respective areas and demanded that the administration should resolve the issues immediately.
The meeting also condemned the deletion of words socialism and secularism from the copies of the Constitution of India circulated among the parliamentarians recently and demanded early inclusion of these two words.
Passing the women’s reservation bill in the Lok Sabha is just not the full justice to the women. Unless separate reservation is given to the SC, ST, OBC and minorities in this bill, the women from these segments will not be benefited and they will be deprived from the due representation in the parliament and State Assemblies, observed the meeting. It demanded immediate provision of the separate reservation for SC, ST, OBC and minority women.
Handing over government schools to corporate houses is a ploy to deprive the Dalit, tribal and backward students from education and violation of the constitution, said the meeting and demanded early withdrawal of the said GR.
The teachers should not be assigned non academic works, electricity rates be reduced, flood affected farmers be given early compensation, farmers repaying their crop loan within a time should not be charged interest, restart the buses in rural and remote areas of the district to enable the students and other travellers were the other demands raised in the meeting.
The workers also resolved to strengthen the party and to continue the second phase of Republican Jansampark Abhiyan shortly and join maximum people in the organization.
