SC nod to reser­va­tion

The Hitavada - - THE OPIN­ION PAGE -

Sir,

The Supreme Court has per­mit­ted the Cen­tre to pro­vide reser­va­tion in pro­mo­tion in Gov­ern­ment jobs. This con­notes that now in In­dia peo­ple will be pro­moted not by their tal­ent but by fo­cus­ing on which sec­tion they be­long to.

This will cre­ate a sense of par­ti­san among the cit­i­zens and also de­stroy In­dia’s be­lief in “unity in diver­sity”.

The foun­da­tion of democ­racy i.e. equal­ity, is also threat­ened and will also cre­ate greater chances of dis­pute be­tween dif­fer­ent com­mu­ni­ties as they will de­velop feel­ings of en­mity for each other. So, in or­der to avoid this prob­lem Gov­ern­ment should re­move reser­va­tion and pro­vide ameni­ties to those who can’t af­ford it, for their devel­op­ment.
