New Delhi, December 10:

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Monday warned the Congress-led UPA Government of taking ''a tough stand'' if it does not push through new legislation that would reserve promotions in government jobs for those belonging to the Scheduled Castes and Tribes (SC/STs).

A livid Mayawati said it is now the responsibility of the UPA Government to initiate a discussion on this issue.

"It is the government''s responsibility to allow the Parliament to function smoothly. We are waiting for the government''s stand on the issue. We will wait for next three days and see the government''s decision and then our party will to take a tough stand because issue of Quota in promotion for Scheduled Castes and Tribes in government jobs is very important for us. Our party can go to any extent on this issue," she said.

Mayawati also took potshots at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on the issue, saying the real face of the main opposition party now stands exposed.

The BSP chief said that the BJP raised the Coalgate issue in the Monsoon Session of Parliament, saying this issue was more important and it should be discussed first.

"Now, when the Winter Session began, they diverted from their earlier stand and raised the issue of FDI," she added, while charging the BJP of asking the Samajwadi Party to create ruckus in the Rajya Sabha on the issue of Quota in promotion for Scheduled Castes and Tribes in government jobs so that the matter does not get much importance.

The Samajwadi Party today forced adjournment in the Rajya Sabha on the issue of Quota in promotion for Scheduled Castes and Tribes in government jobs.

The Rajya Sabha was scheduled to consider passage of the bill in this regard by moving the 117th Constitution Amendment Bill.

The bill was introduced in the Rajya Sabha in the Monsoon Session, but could not be taken up due to disruption on coal block issue.

The BSP has been demanding that the bill be passed, but the Samajwadi Party (SP) is opposing
