appointed on political grounds had already been prepared and the newspapers were
full of stories about a 50-50 quota.

was denying quota in jobs for the teachers' children on the pretext of merit
while at the same time it was trampling upon the principle of merit in making
appointments on political grounds.

to the concerned authorities from time to time to inform them of the problems
but they had little effect. Under these circumstances, the meeting decided to
file a writ petition in the Supreme Court by the end of current month to seek
justice, the meeting said. Dawn
