The Himachal Pradesh government will soon implement the 10 per cent reservation in government jobs and education to economically backward section in the general category in letter and spirit, Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said Tuesday.

In a press statement issued here, Thakur termed the new legislation providing reservation to economically weaker general category people in government jobs and education as historic.

The chief minister said the decision would prove a boon to the economically weak families of the general category as they would also get opportunity in jobs and admissions to the educational institutions.

He said the mantra of 'Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas' of the Centre and the state governments has been further strengthened with this new law.

The constitutional provision to provide 10 per cent reservation in government jobs and education to economically backward section in the general category came into force Monday.

The Constitution (103 Amendment) Act, 2019 received the assent of the President on Saturday.

The bill was passed by Parliament on January 9.
