BJP Govt Sytematically Eroding Quota System For Backwards: Priyanka Gandhi

Mumbai: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday accused the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of systematically trying to abolish the quota system for backward classes as provided in the Constitution.

In a series of tweets, Priyanka Gandhi said: “Understand the system by which BJP wants to end the reservation: 1) RSS leaders keep giving statements against reservation. 2) BJP government in Uttar Pradesh appeals in the Supreme Court that the fundamental right to quota should be terminated.

“3) Uttar Pradesh government immediately starts tampering with the rules of reservation. BJP first tried to tamper with the law made against the atrocities on Dalit Adivasis. Now it is weakening the right of equality given by the Constitution and Babasaheb (BR Ambedkar).”

On Sunday, the Congress party asked the BJP to clarify its stance on reservation for Scheduled Tribes and Scheduled Castes (ST and SC) in government jobs and promotions.
