PMK: Ensure reservation in IIT-Madras

“On the contrary, staff from other castes constitute 86.6 per cent of the total workforce,” added Ramadoss.

CHENNAI: PMK founder S Ramadoss on Monday said that social justice is not implemented properly in IIT-Madras and urged the formation of a team of MPs to monitor the appointment of staff in the institute.

Through an RTI it has come to light that the reservation in IIT-Madras was below 14 per cent. While in the entire country, the voice of backward, scheduled castes and scheduled tribes was heard loudly it was being bulldozed in IIT-Madras. To ensure that social justice was followed in the institute, a team of MPs from backward classes, scheduled castes and scheduled tribes should be constituted to monitor the appointment of staff, said Ramadoss, in a statement.

“On the contrary, staff from other castes constitute 86.6 per cent of the total workforce,” added Ramadoss.
