OBC Stir Media Creation: Ramadoss
Justifying the proposed 27 per cent OBC quota in Central educational institutions, Union Health Minister Ambumani Ramadoss today said that the anti-reservation agitation was a media creation and that the government's decision was in accordance with the Constitution.

'The resistance was all by the media,' Ramadoss told newspersons here.

Stating that all political parties had supported the government proposal, he said 'This is in accordance with the Constitution.' Asked about the move to increase seats in general category while implementing the OBC quota, Ramadoss said 'The seats will be increased in a phased manner.'

The sincerity of politician in upliftment of downtrodden is questionable as evident from the field observation. They are only concerned about vote bank and reservation gives them votes of downtrodden in mass. They talk of creamy layer but the sons & daughters of rich generally get the benefit of quotas. Unfortunate Indians to get an unfortunate constitutional clause – the reservation policy.

I think there is no need to get panicked on the reservation issue by either the people who support it or who don't. The main thing to explain is that even reservation is not a panacea of all the problems but in a country like India which has a high corruption record, no policy other than reservatin can work.But it should be tried to implement this policy in as just manner as we can. For this the castes which have unnessasarily included in the obc list should be excluded and the creamy layer should be targeted in a strict manner. One more thing that must be done is that there should be an annual fixation on the percentage of quota to be introduced and total no of seats aquired by the obc's through open competetion should be excluded from the no. of reserved seats and those should be given the general category students on the basis of their merit so that the obc's don't have more than 27% reservation by two ways.
