SHILLONG, Nov 28: The Khun Hynniewtrep National Awakening
Movement (KHNAM) has demanded 80 per cent job reservation
for indigenous people in the private sector and organised
sector in Meghalaya.
In a letter to chief secretary, DP Wahlang, KHNAM president
Pyndapbor Saibon said the party has submitted an additional
proposal for inclusion in the proposed amended State
Reservation Policy (SRP) along with justification.
“We urge that reservation of 80 per cent of post/vacancies in
the private sector/organized sector be reserved for the
indigenous tribes of the State of Meghalaya,” Saibon said.
Giving a justification, the KHNAM president said, “Looking at
the high rise of unemployability in the State, we understand
that the government sector alone will not be able to cater for
the requirement, therefore, if the private sector can be brought
in the ambit of the SRP, it would to some extent help address
the unemployment of the youth of the state.”
“Moreover, OM dated June 18, 1973 para 7.2 has already
included the public undertakings, government-aided institutes
and contractors in the SRP. Therefore, we do not see any
obstacles in including private sectors and organized sectors too
in the SRP,” he added.

The party had already submitted its proposed amendments to
the SRP, 1972 and its subsequent Office Memorandum issued
from time to time vide letter dated May 31, 2023.
“We would like to express our concern for the delay in
finalisation of the amendment and would request the
government to put some pace in the matter for early
finalisation,” he said. (NNN)
