hi i am with u guys.why discriminate on caste .the govt asks everyone not to discriminate on caste and the it itself puts up reservation for the sooo called obc's.what a hipocracy.and then they cry on the matter that the brain of our country is working abroad.they have not left any options for us.keep up u guys we r all with u.


Our politicians are class apart and they are very thick skinned specimens. Their only focus is vote bank and everything that they do is aimed at that. They are out to divide the country by widenning the sect/creed related segregations I wonder if it is possible to pay them back in the same coin. Consider the following: Why not people who are not part of the reserved category get themselves converted to OBC/ST/SC etc? It is to be done as a voluntary action . It is similar to changing religion.If religion can be changed, I think caste can also be. I am not sure if the constitution allows it.Let the entire nation become a nation of reserved catagory. Let the goverment then decide who should be admitted in colleges and iits/iims. Throw the ball back in their court. We have to beat the government playing this dirty game, by playing little cunning ourselves. I am willing to be called a Shudra if it helps to keep the nation remain undivided.


hi youll guys are doin a great job go all out for it if we dont speak out then the government is gonna take advantage of it .its now or never its a war for our fundamental right and we will win it.

Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of government. The history of liberty is the history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it: Woodrow Wilson I hope this keeps our protestors inspired
