Netas Mort­gage Our In­ter­ests

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Pe­ri­od­i­cal hike in the cost of goods and ser­vices is noth­ing new, but the 122% hike in IIT fees is too cruel, and any­one earn­ing just over .₹ 8,000 a month can­not en­joy the ben­e­fit of tu­ition fee waiver. The na­tion will never progress un­less mer­i­to­ri­ous per­sons are given their due, ir­re­spec­tive of their caste. Sur­pris­ingly, politi­cians never mort­gage their per­sonal in­ter­ests. Will they re­serve the post of prime min­is­ter, pres­i­dent, gov­er­nors and chief min­is­ters for SCs and STs for at least two terms, i.e., 10 years? End caste-based reser­va­tion if In­dia is to pros­per.
