The state government can go to the Supreme Court against the decision of the High Court.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court has struck down the Haryana government’s law guaranteeing 75 percent reservation in private sector jobs for the youth of the state. Now after this decision of the High Court, the state government is planning to go to the Supreme Court. After this, now the opposition parties have opened a front against the state government regarding this. The opposition has accused the state government of not taking up the matter strongly in the court.
On Saturday, Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala said that the state government will soon approach the Supreme Court against the decision of the Punjab and Haryana High Court on employment law. He said in a statement that we are examining the decision of the High Court, only after which the government will go to the Supreme Court. Employment law is very important to provide employment to the youth of Haryana and promote industries. The government has made the law only with the consent and consultation of industrialists.

Promise was made in assembly elections
Domicile quota in private sector employment was a poll promise made by the JJP in the 2019 assembly elections. At the same time, the High Court’s decision, which comes before the parliamentary and state elections to be held next year, is being seen as a big blow to the BJP-JJP coalition government in the state.
Congress said, the government did not advocate
Congress Rajya Sabha MP Deependra Hooda targeted the BJP-JJP government and said that the government did not defend the case strongly in the court. The BJP-JJP government never had any intention of giving 75% reservation in the private sector to the youth of Haryana. All this was just a show. He said that BJP-JJP formed such a government which gave the highest unemployment rate in the country to the youth of Haryana.
What was the law?
Indian National Lok Dal leader and MLA Abhay Singh said that JJP has betrayed the youth of the state. He said that the party should apologize to the people of Haryana. The Haryana State Employment of Local Candidates Act 2020, which came into force on January 15 last year, had made it mandatory for employers in the state to reserve 75% of jobs with a salary of less than Rs 30,000 per month for domiciled residents.
