Final order on reservation for ZP posts

Final order on reservation for ZP posts

 The state government on Friday issued the final notification fixing the reservation for the post of president and vice-president of zilla panchayats.

The government, while making changes in the reservation of presidents in four districts (Ballari, Vijayapura, Chikkamagaluru and Mysuru), has left the quota of Hassan zilla panchayat president untouched.

The government had fixed the reservation for the Hassan zilla panchayat president as ST (woman) and it remains. JD(S) leader H D Revanna had accused the government of reserving the post to ST (woman) to deny his wife Bhavani, who is a member of the zilla panchayat, from becoming president. He had even threatened to withdraw his party’s support to the Congress at the BBMP.
