Coverage: The Reservation Issue
"Now that we have taken up the matter they (agitating students) should call of the strike," a vacation Bench comprising Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice L S Panta said.
The appeal came in the wake of the apex court deciding to examine government's controversial move to provide 27 per cent reservation to socially and educationally backward classes in higher educational institutions.
The court was hearing the petitions filed by advocate Ashoka Kumar Thakur and Shiv Khera challenging the validity of Constitution's 93rd Amendment Act, 2005, extending reservation to OBCs.
