This is time to make changes in our reservation system?In India we are having cast based reservation system in education and jobs in public sector. Cast based reservation system was introduced to uplift some of the backward casts of India. But after what happen is our politicians used it as their vote bank to get elected. And look at the current situation almost 49% quota has been reserved by so called minority casts in every state of India.
Here is the time for us to rethink our position on cast based reservation system. What we have achieved through this reservation system in these years? Hundreds of questions comes in my mind regarding this and putting some of them here.
01. We are having reservation for some casts where they are getting benefits for all the years after independence. Still they are getting or want to get benefited why? I mean after providing more than 60 years of benefit of reservation to some casts and still they are not come out of backward class then what is meaning of having reservation system?
02. India is country of diversity. We talk about unity in diversity but we do not have it. We have many religions and casts in India and the poverty. There is no cast in India where we will not find poverty. Then what was need of introducing reservation based on cast rather than financial / economic situation of people.
03. People have suffered more because of cast based reservation over benefits. Think about it that if 49% seats for admission in educational institute has been reserved for some casts and out of 51% seats rest of the students have fight. Student who are actually having good academic record are getting demotivated because of this system.
Let us discuss the issue here openly and save our country from the further loss from previously made mistake.
