Cabinet Secretariat returns draft bill for reservation

April 11, 2006 01:14 IST

The Cabinet Secretariat has returned the draft bill to provide for reservation for backward class students in Central educational institutions to the Human Resource Development Ministry in view of the current round of Assembly elections in some states.

Official sources said though there was no problem with the proposal, it was felt that since the election process was on such a major measure would violate the model code of conduct.

'PM must clarify reservation issue'

Asserting that there was no violation of model code of conduct, Singh in his reply to the Election Commission on Sunday said that the proposal is before the Union Cabinet which is yet to decide.
