RSS’ ‘Dangerous’ Plan is To Remove SC, ST, OBC Reservations Entirely: Jignesh Mewani

The bill to amend the constitution to provide 10 per cent quota to economically weaker sections is expected to pass in the Rajya Sabha today.

Gujarat independent MLA and founder of Dalit Ekta Manch, Jignesh Mewani on Tuesday, January 8 said that the Narendra Modi-led government’s bill to provide 10 per cent quota to economically weaker sections is a step towards the RSS’ plan to remove caste-based reservations from the constitution.

He wrote that having spoken to people affiliated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), he discovered something “dangerous”. Mewani wrote that RSS has always opposed caste-based reservation, and wants to amend the constitution to include reservation on the basis of economic criteria.

He adds that after the amendment, the RSS plans on removing caste-based reservations for Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST) and Other Backward Classes (OBC) entirely, and keep only reservations on the basis of economic criteria.

After being passed in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday, the Constitution 124th (Amendment) Bill, 2019 that provides reservations to economically weaker sections, is being discussed in the Rajya Sabha today and is expected to pass here as well.
