Election season is here. And more reservations on the way in Andhra Pradesh. Everything from Colleges to Private sectors. Politicians are not leaving anything away from Reservations, except their Political organizations.
Here is a list of confirmed commitments from various political parties:
- Congress awards 4% of Reservations (from the existing 27% OBCs quota) for Muslims in Educational Institutions, already approved by Supreme Court.
- Telugu Desam is thinking of awarding Reservations in Private sector for SCs.
- Kapu Community, almost a 30% contingent in the state has been fighting for Reservations too to be included in BC list. YSR has been publicly promising 'justice' will be done to them 'very soon'.
- If Chiranjeevi comes to power, all key objectives of Kapunadu will be fulfilled (as per most Chiru proponents), that include Reservations to Kapu community in Andhra Pradesh.
The concept of reservations has been stretched too far already. Will there be an end to it? It doesn't seem to have offered any plausible solution to the problem it has been trying to solve for 60 years, and Politicians use this as a strategy to get through in every election.
