They demanded the inclusion of backlogs in the recruitment process, with a strong emphasis on accurate data representation.

The NGOs also expressed their unwavering commitment to safeguarding the rights and interests of the communities they represent. They made it abundantly clear that, if necessary, they will not hesitate to initiate a series of agitations to ensure the equitable and just implementation of the Reservation Roster system.

“We are making it clear, if necessary, a series of agitations will be initiated without hesitation to ensure the fair and just implementation of the Reservation Roster system,” they said.
