In In­dia, quota has al­ways been used for pol­i­tics (Prez nod for 10% quota for up­per caste poor, DC, Jan. 13). Our Con­sti­tu­tion keeps amend­ing pro­vi­sions time and again. How­ever, it has al­ways failed to fol­low the ba­sic di­rec­tives to pro­vide equal op­por­tu­ni­ties to all. The poor among the up­per castes will also meet the same fate as oth­ers. Ei­ther there is no new job for SC/ST/OBC or they are low-paid with no se­cu­rity at all. The 10 per cent quota to EBCs in the gen­eral cat­e­gory is noth­ing but a bait for vote bank.
