‘State govt view blinkered on jobs for disabled people’


AHMEDABAD: Justice JB Pardiwala lashed out at the state government’s misinterpretation of the law granting 3% reservation in government jobs for people with disabilities. “The state is expected to have a constitutional wisdom…It completely lost sight of its commitment both under its own policy decision as also the statutory provision,” said Justice Pardiwala.

The court made this observation in the matter of Rajesh Desai, an MD in Physiology, who had been denied a job in colleges run by the Gujarat Medical Education & Research Society. Desai has 55% permanent disability in his right leg.
