All the tribal youths, leaders, student-groups, sub-groups etc. for a peaceful demonstration on March 8, 2011 at 11:00 AM from Jantar Mantar proceed to Parliament for pressing the Government of India to restore 7.5% reservation of Scheduled Tribes in post and services under the Government of NCT of Delhi. A memorandum will be submitted to the Hon’ble Prime Minister Sh. Manmohan Singh, Smt. Sonia Gandhi, Chairperson UPA and Sh. P. Chidambaram, Home Minister about the unnecessary harassment of tribals by way of stopping reservation under the Local Government of NCT of Delhi and to demand immediate restoration of 7.5% reservation of ST’s which has continued from 1955, as decided by the MHA vide OM No. 7/2/55-SCT dated 14-10-1955.

The organisers have said that a deeprooted conspiracy was there against tribals taking shelter of judgment pronounced by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in Civil Appeal No. 5092 of 2009 Subhash Chandra & Others Vs. Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board & Others, which has been subsequently over ruled by the bench of Supreme Court in Civil Appeal No. 4494 of 2006 dated 07-10-2010 State of Uttaranchal Vs. Sandeep Kumar Singh & Others. Therefore, the 7.5% reservation of ST’s continued from 1955 under the Govt. of NCT of Delhi should not be complicated with the larger issue of migration from one state to other state. Let the tribals join into the main stream of the nation coming to the national capital of India from different state and union territories. If there is no Scheduled List of ST’s for Govt. of NCT of Delhi, issue constitutional order under Article 342(1) of the Constitution treating all the scheduled tribals across the India deemed to be a list of ST’s for Govt. of NCT of Delhi.

All are requested to kindly join the demonstration on 08th March 2011 at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi. All are requested to forget regional difference and geographical isolation and make a plan and strategy for making success of this demonstration.

Though Sikkim doesn’t have much tribal population, participation from northeastern states of Tripura, Nagaland, Manipur, Meghalya and Mizoram apart from Jharkhand, Chhatisgarh and other states with tribal population is expected.
