Girls from biggest sex-biased districts of country, become icons


Girls from Yamunanagar and Hoshiarpur tops UPSC exam

Chandigarh 6 May (BB): hailing from two biggest 'sex-biased' districts of Haryana and Punjab - Yamunanagar and Hoshiarpur two girls Shena Aggarwal (IAS topper) and Rukmani Riar (second IAS topper), on Saturday became the new icon of girl power setting up a new example of the era of women.
In national census 2001 and 2011 both Punjab and Haryana have often received severe discriminatiion for skewed sex ratio.
However these two women on Friday had brought laurels to Punjab and Haryana by topping the civil services examination and bagging the first and second positions.
I will do everything possible to improve the sex ratio and implement necessary programmes strictly," declared Aggarwal, said the first ranker after the results to a leading English daily.
She said it was time for women to add more responsiblites to their social and professional portfolio in the country.
"I understand every female has to keep proving herself to achieve an objective in our country," said Aggarwal, proudly mentioning her "indefatigable spirit" leading to success in her third attempt at the coveted exam.
It is pertinent to mention here that according to Census 2011, Yamunanagar had recorded a poor sex ratio 877- the second lowest in Haryana, with a marginal increase over 2001's figure of 869. The literacy rate of Yamunanagar for women stands at 72% For the Hoshiarpur-based second-topper Rupinder Riar, poor quality of education for women that troubled her during her preparations was still a concern.
"I always feel low when I learn women couldn't work because of poor resources and family restrictions said Riar adding, I hope things will become rosy with few of us women coming from these two states,"

UP govt to implement SC order on SC/ST quota

New Delhi 6 May (BB): The new Akhilesh Yadav Government in Uttar Pradesh has decided to accept the April 27 order of the Supreme Court that declared as unconstitutional Section 3 (7) of the Uttar Pradesh Public Service (Reservation for SC, ST and OBC) Act, 1994 which gave reservation in promotion, amid the possibility of an all-party meeting against the backdrop of the former Chief Minister, Mayawati, demanding a Constitutional amendment. The apex court had also struck down Section 8(A) of the U.P. Government Servant Seniority Third Amendment Rule, which gave consequential seniority. The amendments granting reservation in promotion and consequential seniority to Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe officers and employees in government service were introduced by the Mayawati government in 2007. It is pertinent to mention here that the apex court made it clear that those who have been granted promotion will not be disturbed.
The official decision over the quota system in promotion and consequential seniority for SC,ST officers and employees was taken through Cabinet by circulation' on Friday. Sources said the ordinance had been sent to the Governor for his approval. For implementing the Supreme Court order, the State government will have to amend the U.P. Public Service (Reservation for SC,ST and OBC )Act, 1994 and the U.P. Government Servant Seniority Amendment Rule.
