BJP to launch stir

PALAKKAD: The BJP would organise a state – wide stir for ensuring social justice and providing reservations in educational institutions run by minority communities in the state, according to BJP state president P K Krishnadas.

He was briefing mediapersons at Hotel Tripenta in Malampuzha after the conclusion of the three day state leadership camp of the BJP here on Sunday.

Krishnadas warned that the educational institutions after securing ‘minority status’ from the National Commission for Minorities, were not bound to provide reservation to Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe and Other Backward Class students in their educational institutions thereby denying them higher education just because he hailed from the ‘Hindu’ community.

This would result in serious social imbalance.

Deliberating on the three-day meet, national secretary of the BJP, Balbir Punj, who was in charge of Kerala affairs said that the BJP was of the view that since 56 percent of the population of Kerala were Hindus, 56 percent of the educational institutions should also be run by them.
