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.
