The High Court of Madhya Pradesh, Jabalpur scrapped the current Reservation in Promotion of state government employee on 30th May 2016. This will affect the employees who got promotion due to reservation after 2006. This decision was an historic one for General candidates whose promotion was delayed due to reservation.
In against of this decision MP government went to Supreme Court and filed a case against it. This move was clearly seen as a political step to gather the sympathy and vote bank of SC/ST in the state.
High court decision was appropriate and the case same as MP Promotion case of Karnataka government was defeated in Supreme Court recently in March 2017. There is allegedly a delay in the process of the case by government as the adverse effect of decision may hamper the coming 2019 Assembly Elections.
Apart from this one more political movement in Madhya Pradesh was Liquor Ban. Although it was a good move but it will plunge the revenue of government which it was gaining through it.
