School and college appointments; Devaswom Minister halts attempt to subvert reservation policy

h

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Devaswom Minister K. Radhakrishnan instructed in a meeting with board heads that the government order to implement reservation in PSC model for teaching and non-teaching appointments in educational institutions under Devaswom boards must be strictly followed. Officials attempting to subvert the reservation policy have been warned of facing action.

Kerala Kaumudi reported yesterday that the board's lawyer and secretary stated in the High Court that the order does not apply to the Travancore Devaswom Board. Following this, the minister intervened.

A meeting with the heads of the five Devaswom Boards and the Devaswom Recruitment Board was held in the capital yesterday morning. The minister voluntarily addressed this issue, which was not on the agenda, and issued a warning to those concerned.

Kerala Kaumudi pointed out that despite the implementation of reservation in other appointments within Devaswom Boards, it has not been applied to school and college appointments. Consequently, a decision was made in a meeting convened by Minister K. Radhakrishnan, following a proposal by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. The order was issued on February 29. However, attempts to subvert this order have been reported.

Minister K. Radhakrishnan stated that if the Travancore Devaswom Board secretary or advocate has taken a stance contrary to the government order, it will be examined in the High Court. The board must rectify any issues.

'The government order to maintain reservation will be strictly implemented. If mistakes have been made in court, they will be corrected.'
