Reservation Largesse continues!

In last many weeks, India witnessed another impasse over reservation issue. The Gujjar community was at agitation over the demand for catse-based reservation in Rajasthan. The sordid tale of evnts ended only after the state BJP government bowed to their demands and granted them 5 % reservation.

When will this bogey of reservation end? Tomorrow another community will make an uprise and try to shoot the administration in the eyes! Whereas India needs a long term solution to get rid of this caste-based reservation, we are witnessing largesses being distributed! This speaks volumes of our lack of long term vision, pragmatism and an indirect admission of caste-based realities of Indian (Hindu) society! I am not against reservation for socially disadvantages people: they need to be assisted for the upliftment, but I am of the firm belief that this catse -based reservation must be phased out with a more coherent and pragmatic policy replacing it!

And one more point: The fact that BJP agreed to this arrangement is more disappointing! BJP calls herself a party with a difference and takes pride in nationalism and national integration! So much for that cause!
