Voting on Reservation in Promotions bill toda

Rajya Sabha will vote on the contentious quota in promotions bill on Monday with the Congress issuing whips to its MP's to vote in favour of it. Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi had said that the party was “committed that there should be reservations in promotions for SCs and STs. We hope that we will be able to get the bill cleared in the Parliament.” He was asked if the party was planning to issue a whip for voting on the bill on reservation for SCs and STs in promotions. "Definitely the party will issue a whip. Why will it not issue a whip?" Alvi responded. After days of continuous disruption and unruly scenes in Parliament, the legislation is likely to draw requisite two thirds majority in the Upper House with all the major parties having declared their support to the law
