Mr. Paswan the most well-known face in Modi’s government said’ Reservation for SC and ST was implemented in the country under the Pune pact between Baba Saheb Ambedkar and Rashtrapita Mahatma Gandhi. This is not a donation granted by someone and it cannot be abolished, BJPs ally and Union Minister said on Sunday that reservation is a constitutional right and no one can eliminate it, targeting the RSS over contentious comments by its exposure chief on quotas in government jobs and educational associations. Paswan also speculated why RSS leaders made such comments close to elections saying it was normal for people to get perplexed by the kind of comments the Sangh spokesperson and its all India promotion chief Manmohan Vaidya made about reservation lately.
He also alleged that his party will go up against ‘to the and nail’ any stab to adjust or modify the accessible quota system ‘from parliament to streets’. Most recent time RSS had made parallel comments throughout the Bihar assembly polls and at the present, it has said so all through the Uttar Pradesh polls. What I cannot comprehend as to why does it create such comments during the moment of elections?
Mr. Paswan also told PTI that ‘we had suffered heavily in Bihar due to this. RSS is an independent organization and I do not know why it gives such statements. It is but natural for people to be confused by such comments’. RSS’s publicity chief Manmohan Vaidya had on Friday booted up a row with remarks favoring a review of reservation policy saying that even Ambedkar had not privileged its persistence in eternity and comments that could be potentially harmful to BJP in elections to five states assemblies.
Mr. Vaidya told an interactive session at Jaipur that ‘Reservation for Sc and ST was introduced in a different context. It was provided for in the constitution to remedy the historical injustice done to them. It was our responsibility. So the reservation for them has been there since the inception. But, even Ambedkar has said its continuance in perpetuity is not good and there should be a time limit to it’.
Mohan Bhagwal, who is the RSS chief gave same remarks about the requirement for an appraisal of the reservation policy just ahead of Bihar polls and had outlay the BJP dearly as it saw an enormous consolidation of the electorate from the rearward classes and weaker sections in favor of Nitish Kumar-led grand alliance. Paswan in his statement said ‘There is no need to get disturbed by anybody’s personal views. The reservation will continue as long as a caste system exists in the country’.
Mr. Paswan said that social justice and secularism are two main planks of LJP and it will not allow any government to tinker with reservation policy which is a constitutional right. He also renowned Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made it apparent that nobody can stroke reservation as long as he was alive and added that he had taken numerous measures to endorse Bhim Rao Ambedkar. The Bihar leader also renowned that he played a chief and major role in approaching for quotas. Accessible reservation benefits over 85 percent of the population and no government can have the funds to fiddle with it.
