Supporting strongly the reservation to the Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribe in promotion, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said the reservation in promotion to the class had already been implemented in the state.

Before leaving for Kolkata to attend a function organised by Yong President Organisation, Mr Kumar told newspersons here he was in support of the reservation to the section in promotion.

He said after carefully going through the verdict of the Supreme court, a survey was conducted in the state and the reservation in promotion was implemented for the SC and ST.

The chief minister said an amendment bill regarding reservation in promotion for the SC and ST would likely to be introduced and the matter would be more clear once the bill was passed.

He said the reservation was essential for the SC-ST as the class was yet to be developed.
