Does Indian Political leaders have willpower to take such step?Although the issue of reservation has been raised, again and again, hundreds of times still I am again raising the issue with a little different perspective. With an example of a country which lags behind us in many aspects but on this issue, this country got a step ahead of us.
Recently we heard a news that Bangladesh government has completely scraped out the system of reservation from all their institutions.
A bold step that should be applauded because we all know that no government in India have willpower or audacity to throw out this system in India or find a good replacement for it.
We all know how the reservation is slowly creating broader gaps among the students instead of reducing them. How?
Because This does not affect the students who are on the top of the list and are toppers, but affects those students who lag behind just by 0.25 or 0.5 marks to clear the various cutoffs to get into various institutions and jobs and on the other hand their friend who is having equally as much resource as they have and same IQ level and sometimes financially stronger to gets admissions and job despite having gap of 5-6 marks what a tragedy it is?
This gap is clearly visible in the lists of cutoffs of eminent institutes of India Like - Delhi university too.
Nobody denies that how worse our society was for the scheduled caste people and they should be given more chance in the society to rise up but at what cost?
isn't our constitution itself says that equals should be treated equally so why the student from the same financial background does not get equal opportunities?
Do you think any political leader in India has the audacity to speak out this issue in public without fears of being judged as leader of upper caste?
