BSP chief Mayawati lashes out at BJP over reservation woes

Lucknow/UNI: Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Sunday criticised the BJP-led dispensation over Supreme Court's recent verdict on reservation.

Mayawati stated that the Constitutional effort to bring oppressed victims of SC, ST, and OBC sections into the mainstream was ‘failing’ as the BJP-led Centre had followed in the Congress’ footsteps of neglecting the cause.

The Supreme Court in a recent verdict has held that the States are not bound to provide reservation in appointments and there is no fundamental right to claim quota in promotions.

Addressing the verdict, Mayawati in a series of tweets said on Sunday , "Because of such a wrong attitude of the centre, the Supreme Court made the system of reservation in government jobs and promotions inactive/ineffective."

"The whole society is agitated by the manner in which the court did this. There are constant attacks on the rights of the poor, youth, women, and other oppressed people in the country," she said. She also urged the Centre to provide a 'security cover' for the system of reservation by bringing it in the 9th schedule of the Constitution.

Her tweet translates to, "In such a situation, I demand the Central Government to bring the positive system of reservation in the 9th schedule of the Constitution and provide it with security cover till the crores of people who are suffering from neglect join the mainstream of the country. Reservation has the correct constitutional intent."
