Reinstatement of Quota: Students' Movement in Jobs

The agitating students said, ’56 percent quota in government jobs cannot be a normal education system of any country. Among the huge number of unemployment problems in the country, if discriminatory measures like quotas are imposed on students, the unemployment problem will increase. We respect freedom fighters. They are the sunshine of the country. So saying that their children and even grandchildren will join quota jobs without working hard is not acceptable. We are unhappy with this verdict.’

They also said that we have not come here to protest against the government, we are only protesting against discrimination to claim our rights. With due respect to the High Court, we request that the High Court quash the restoration of quota.
